England goalkeeper Mary Earps is on the verge of completing a move to Paris Saint-Germain on a free transfer, sources have informed ESPN, as her contract with Manchester United is set to expire this month.

Despite ongoing negotiations with United regarding a contract extension, sources indicated to ESPN that Earps is likely to join the French club.

Speculation surrounding Earps’ future has been rife over the past year. Last summer, Arsenal from the Women’s Super League (WSL) reportedly prepared a world-record fee offer for the 31-year-old, sparking discussions about a potential move to north London in January. However, Earps remained with United, where she played a key role in their Women’s FA Cup triumph.

Earps originally joined United from Wolfsburg in 2019 following their promotion to the WSL, amassing over 100 appearances for the club.

Addressing her future last month, Earps explained to Sky Sports News, “Conversations are still ongoing. I’ve been clear I don’t want to make an emotional decision. I’ve asked the club for some confirmation on what they’re trying to achieve, and when I have those answers, I’ll be able to make a decision. It’s up to the club.”

PSG has an available slot for a non-EU player, with Tabitha Chawinga departing after her one-year loan spell and Eva Gaetino possessing a Hungarian passport through her family connection.
