Miyazawa was the only non-European award winner at the World Cup after scoring five goals in four games for the “Nadeshiko,” who were eliminated by Sweden in the quarterfinals.
“I am truly very happy to be part of this wonderful family and this great team,” Miyazawa said in a statement. “I am really looking forward to getting started and hope my style of play will excite our fans.”
“After this summer’s Women’s World Cup, Hinata’s attacking quality speaks for itself,” said Man Utd’s head of women’s football Polly Bancroft. “We are thrilled to welcome her to Manchester United and to European football.”
