Marta Reportedly Leaving Umeå

The Swedish soccer football club Umeå IK has broken off negotiations to keep Brazilian star Marta.

The club says the agent for the 21 year old forward has failed to respond to its proposals. The two-time winner of the FIFA women’s Player of the Year award has been with Umeå for the past five years.

On Tuesday the newspaper “Expressen” reported that Marta has signed a preliminary contract with the Los Angeles Sol.
