They want to sign the City defender at all costs from the Lions Club and have a new proposal
Athletic don’t drop their arms when looking for a signing Aymeric Laporte. Ernesto Valverde warned that a new defender could take the place left by Iñigo Martínez despite having a squad that knows the game. Despite the complications of the Citizen player’s arrival, there are options similar to Etihad’s.
Let’s remember Aymeric Laporte gained strength to return to Athletic after learning about the possibility of playing in Europe. This was, of course, squandered with UEFA’s confirmation that Osasuna have been admitted to the competition. In any case, they will make another attempt to complete the return of the youth team.
From Athletic they are not backing down to signing Aymeric Laporte in this summer market
In this way it has been possible to establish that the idea of the lions is about convincing the player, albeit with a different proposition. That doesn’t count for Pep Guardiola at Manchester City, so he’s considering a change of scenery. Nor do they want to make it easy for themselves and expect good value for money.
In that order of ideas, the offer Athletic will make to stay at Laporte and prevent him from joining Real Sociedad comes via loan. Of course, it will not be a loan, as an option to buy will be offered in the second year. In this way the English were able to accept Agen’s departure.
The Lions want the defender’s return and propose a transfer with an option to buy
Getting rid of the discards is crucial for City and with the defender’s loan they can add another element to that demarcation. Without a doubt, this change of strategy could be crucial for the rest of the transfer marketthe ongoing processes must be closed.
Then we’ll have to wait and see what can happen with the future of Laporte and Athletic. The player wants to return to San Mamés but his return is not easy. Because of this, the Lions will make new efforts to find a footballer who could strengthen an area that needs special care.
