It has been announced that Diane Caldwell will leave Manchester United after spending just half a season at the club.
The 33-year-old made just six appearances under Marc Skinner but at least she achieved a dream by joining her lifelong club.
When the Republic of Ireland international joined in the January transfer window, she tweeted: “Words can’t describe what this means to me. Everything I’ve done in my life was for this moment.
“As a lifelong United fan, it’s a dream to sign for the club and a huge moment for me and my family. I’m so grateful to be here and will wear the badge with so much pride and passion.”
Lived the dream, signed for the club that she’s been a lifetime fan of. Once a Red, always a Red!

“Diane joined United in the January 2022 transfer window and the Republic of Ireland international went on to make six appearances for the club.
“Manchester United Women would like to express our thanks to Diane and wish her the best of luck for the rest of her career.”
Echoing United’s statement above, we would like to wish Caldwell the very the best with the rest of her career.
