Barth to join Atlético

Contract with the Colchoneros until 2024.

Merle Barth, most recently a central defender for Turbine Potsdam, is moving to Madrid for the coming season, signing a 2-year contract with the 11-time Spanish men’s champions. After a total of nine years at Bayer 04 Leverkusen and two years in Potsdam, it is now time for a new league – Liga Iberdrola!

Merle on her decision: „I really wanted to play abroad in the next step and didn’t make the decision easy for me. In the end, this club is now the really big deal I was hoping for. I’ve already started learning Spanish and I’m looking forward to my time in Madrid.“

Vamos, Merle!
