Manchester City are reportedly looking to cash in on 28-year-old Spanish international Aymeric Laporte at the end of the season.
A report from Calciomercatoweb claims that Juventus have been offered the chance to sign Aymeric Laporte at the end of the season. Apparently Serie A outfit Roma are keen on signing 28-year-old as well.
Laporte is valued at €40 million by the Premier League side. But they are prepared to sell him for a knockdown price in order to raise funds and make way for Josko Gvardiol.
Pep Guardiola is keen on signing the Croatian international at the end of the season. The 21-year-old is one of the best young defenders in world football right now, and he has proven his quality in the Bundesliga and the recently concluded World Cup, where he helped his country reach the semi-finals of the competition.
Gvardiol has been linked with a number of other Premier League clubs as well. And it remains to be seen whether Manchester City can secure his services this summer. Meanwhile, Laporte has been a loyal servant for Manchester City since joining the club from Athletic Club, and he could prove to be a quality acquisition for Juventus or Roma.
The Spanish international has proven his quality in the Premier League over the years. And a move to Italy could be an exciting new option for him. The versatile defender can operate as a centre-back as well as a full-back and could be an indispensable asset for the two Serie A clubs.
Laporte has already won multiple trophies in England with Manchester City, and he could feel that this is the right opportunity for him to try out a new challenge. The opportunity to showcase his qualities in Serie A is likely to be a tempting opportunity.
Laporte is at the peak of his career right now, and signing a player of his quality within €40 million could prove to be a massive bargain for either club. It remains to be seen whether Juventus or Roma can lure him to Italy in the coming months.
