Mariona Caldentey to leave FC Barcelona

After 10 years representing Barça, Mariona Caldentey will not be at the Club the coming season. The 28-year-old Mallorcan player has decided to take on a new professional challenge once her contract ends on June 30. Barça’s number 9 is saying goodbye after 302 competitive games for Barça, having scored 114 goals.

Mariona leaves as the fifth highest all-time goalscorer for the Club behind Oshoala (117), Sonia Bermúdez (123), Jenni Hermoso (181) and Alexia Putellas (190).

Her 114 goals were scored in the Liga F (73), the Champions League (16), the Copa de la Reina (13), the Spanish Super Cup (3), and the Catalan Cup (9).

Superb spell

The Balearic Islander has won 25 trophies: 3 Champions League, 5 Liga F, 6 Copa de la Reina, 4 Spanish Super Cup, and 6 Catalan Cups.

She is fourth in the all-time list for trophies won, only behind Alexia Putellas (30), Melanie Serrano (29) and Marta Torrejón (28).
