Toni Duggan has been tipped to complete a move to reigning Spanish champions Atletico Madrid Femenino this summer, turning down offers to return home in the process.
Duggan, who was part of the England Lionesses squad at this summer's World Cup in France, announced her Barcelona exit earlier this month, becoming one of the most sought after free agents in the game.
Having been linked with newly promoted Women's Super League side Manchester United after following the club on social media, Spanish publication SPORT claims that Duggan will stay in Spain with Atletico after rejecting 'numerous interesting proposals', many from England.
Now 28 years of age, Duggan made the move to Spain in 2017 when she joined Barcelona from Manchester City. She helped Barça win the Copa de la Reina in her debut season and then went on to reach the Champions League final in 2018/19, losing against a dominant Lyon.
