In a month Tobin Heath and Christen Press have become more important than players like Pogba, Bruno Fernandes or Marcus Rashford since they arrived they have sold more shirts than the entire men's team combined. It is an absolute record for Manchester United women's football. Women's football in England is becoming very important.

It was unexpected at Manchester United how many jerseys these two players have sold. While they knew the public would be delighted with Press and Heath transfers, they never imagined the tremendous impact. Manchester United's main goal is to keep the FA Womens Super League trophy. For the moment Manchester United is in the second position.

In their debut in an official match with Manchester United, both Press and Heath showed why they are one of the best players in the world. Both are coming off world championships in France in 2019. Heath and Press's last teams in the NSWL were Portland Timbers and Utah Royals respectively.

With the arrival of Heath and Christen Press, there are already six NSWL players who decided to go play in the FA Womens Super League in England. The best player in the world, Alex Morgan also decided to leave the NSWL to play for Tottenham. The exodus of all these stars from the USWNT shows the growth of the English women's soccer league.
