Official: Barcelona defender Laia Codina signs for AC Milan Women on loan

By Steph Insixiengmay -

AC Milan have officially confirmed that Laia Codina has signed for the Women’s team. The defender comes to the team on loan from her parent club, FC Barcelona.

As we have written before, Codina’s signing is quite the coup for the Rossonere. The defender is considered the crown jewel of the La Maisa academy and has played matches at the highest level, and now a statement has confirmed her arrival.

Though she wasn’t a starter, Laia played a pivotal part in helping the Barcelona Women win their first-ever treble last season. She has played a total of 45 matches for the team and has scored a single goal for them.

Her signing is also proof that Milan can attract talented players who are entering their prime. The fact of which, bodes well for the team in the future.

The defender is expected to play a big role for Milan and to help them contest for titles this season. You’ll be able to watch Laia play for the Rossonere on the official AC Milan app, Dailymotion page, and on the official site for the Italian television channel, La7.

More will be written about the defender in the upcoming days, but for now, we’ll just say: Benvinguda Laia!
