Bay FC break women’s football transfer record to sign striker Kunhananji

Zambia forward Racheal Kundananji has become the most expensive player in the history of women’s football after signing for National Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) expansion team Bay FC.

The US club, based in the San Francisco Bay Area, signed the 23-year-old from Spanish club Madrid CFF for a fee of $788,000.

Bay FC will play in the NWSL for the first time this year, becoming the league’s 14th team. The regular season starts on March 16.

The deal also represents the first time an African player, male or female, has broken a world transfer record.

Kundananji has signed a four-year contract with an option for a fifth year with the signing coming just two weeks after Nigeria’s Asisat Oshoala, who won the African Footballer of the Year award for the sixth time in December, signed from Barcelona.
