Women's football: record transfer for Zambian Racheal Kundananji

Zambian international striker Racheal Kundananji on Tuesday became the biggest transfer in women's football by leaving Real Madrid for the American club Bay FC for a fee of 735,000 euros, according to several media. Bay FC, a new franchise in the American championship based in San José, has not given details of the transfer fee but according to the American channel ESPN and the Spanish daily Marca, it would reach 787,000 dollars (735,000 euros).

This amount exceeds the 488,000 dollars (450,000 euros) fixed and the 54,200 dollars (more than 50,000 euros) variable that the London club Chelsea paid in January to the Spanish club Levante to sign the Colombian international Mayra Ramirez.

However, we are still very far from the current sums in men's football and in particular the record 222 million euros spent by Paris-SG to hire the Brazilian star of FC Barcelona Neymar, in August 2017.

Kundananji, 23, joins the California franchise until 2027, with an option for an additional season. She arrived in Madrid in August 2022, scoring 25 goals in her first season and eight more in the 14 matches she has played in the current campaign. She participated with Zambia in the Women's World Cup in Australia and New Zealand in 2023 and the Tokyo Olympics in 2021.
