Digimagaz.com –In a surprising turn of events, Premier League giants Manchester City have accepted a transfer bid for their talented defender Aymeric Laporte from Saudi Pro League side Al Nassr. The move could see Laporte teaming up with football legends such as Cristiano Ronaldo and Sadio Mane at the Saudi club.
Laporte, 29, experienced a season of limited game time at Manchester City, making just 12 Premier League appearances in the previous campaign. The central defender found himself often overshadowed by the likes of Ruben Dias, Nathan Ake, John Stones, and Manuel Akanji, who played pivotal roles in City’s triumphant treble-winning season.
With the recent addition of centre-back Josko Gvardiol, for a hefty sum of £77.6 million, Laporte’s position within the Manchester City squad appeared to be further marginalized. The French-born defender, who represents Spain at the international level, initially joined Manchester City from Athletic Bilbao in 2018 for a fee of £57 million. During his tenure, he contributed significantly to the team’s success, amassing an impressive total of 180 appearances and earning 11 major trophies.
Laporte’s trophy cabinet boasts an incredible five Premier League titles along with the highly coveted Champions League trophy. His move to Al Nassr could open up a new chapter in his career, granting him the opportunity to play alongside some of football’s most illustrious names. The prospect of linking up with Cristiano Ronaldo, a global football icon, and other accomplished players like Sadio Mane could prove to be a significant career milestone for Laporte.
As the transfer deal progresses, football fans eagerly await official announcements from both clubs regarding the completion of the transfer and Laporte’s new journey in Saudi Arabia’s burgeoning football landscape.
