Barcelona fans want Aymeric Laporte signed this summer, amid reports the Manchester City defender could depart
Barcelona have already completed deals for Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia , both on a free transfer from Manchester City. But new reports from Spain claim they want a third Manchester City player. Aymeric Laporte has emerged as a target – and so, Barcelona fans have reacted.
Laporte, who turned 27 last week, has been afforded just 16 Premier League appearances throughout the campaign. That is because of the arrival of Ruben Dias and the resurgence of John Stones. So, he has just 27 games to his name, league and cup.
The Athletic claim that Laporte – along with Raheem Sterling and Gabriel Jesus – are not particularly happy over their game time. They claim that the trio would be open to a summer exit. Laporte might just reunite with Garcia and Aguero in the coming weeks.
What are Barcelona fans saying about Manchester City defender Laporte?
Mundo Deportivo claim that Ronald Koeman’s side like the look of Laporte – who played for Athletic Bilbao before his move to City. The left-footed defender has been included in Spain’s Euro 2020 squad this summer. Laporte had failed to make his debut France at senior level, and so, Spain jumped in.
Barcelona fans have reacted on Twitter to the reports that they could sign Manchester City defender Laporte this summer. It remains to be seen how much he would cost, because City spent £57million. But Barcelona fans want him at the Nou Camp mainly because they need a new centre-back.
