Man City to beat Man United to £25m La Liga sensation

Manchester City are planning to beat bitter rivals Manchester United to the signature of Aymeric Laporte, according to reports from Goal.

The French centre-back has enjoyed a fantastic season in La Liga with Athletic Bilbao, featuring regularly for the Basque side despite being just 20-years-old.

His composed showings have made Laporte one of Spanish football’s most highly-rated youngsters, luring in admiring glances from clubs such as Manchester United.

However, City are keen to beat their neighbours to him, with a summer overhaul at the Etihad Stadium being planned.

Laporte has a £30m release clause in his contract, but the Citizens are keen to do business at closer to the £25m mark.

As well as the talented defender, Everton’s Ross Barkley, Paul Pogba of Juventus and Kevin De Bruyne – the highest assist maker in Europe’s top five leagues – of Wolfsburg are targets ahead of the looming transfer window.
