Laporte chooses between Juventus and Athletic Club

The market is shaken in a resounding way for the Bilbao team, to close the signing of Guardiola’s forgotten central defender, although they must first overcome some financial obstacles.

The central defender Aymeric Laporte already has a decision made to which team to emigrate between Athletic Club or Juventus Turin. He has finally opted for his roots, and has chosen the lion set as his next squad, in which he intends to recover his level and return to the Spain National Team.

His stay at Manchester City was positive in some seasons, but there were more negative ones where Laporte barely added 60% of the total minutes in each course. The current contract that binds him to the Citizens team is signed until 2025, and for that reason Athletic Club will have to make a huge sacrifice to reach his signing.

Athletic will have to place 30 million for Laporte

It is not the first time that the Bilbao team will have to pay more than 30 million euros for a central defender. In the summer market of 2017, they did the same with Iñigo Martínez, by paying 32 kilos to Real Sociedad. At present, the Basque defender left for free to FC Barcelona. But now the most important thing is the pass of the Spanish-French.

Athletic’s sports management has already sent a counter offer of 25 million euros, but it probably won’t happen. And it is that the citizen cadre paid 65 kilos for Laporte in 2018, for which they intend to recover a little more than 45% of the investment. However, the negotiation is open, and in the case of a defender as important as him, they will continue trying.

Valverde asks Athletic to make a great sacrifice for the signing of Laporte

With the departure of Iñigo Martínez, the lion’s defense was quite touched, and the signing of the ex-cub would solve a large part of that dilemma. Although Ernesto Valverde still has Yeray Álvarez, Dani Vivian and Aitor Paredes, they need another highly experienced defender. The current Manchester City footballer meets all the requirements, and the coach from Cáceres couldn’t be more satisfied.

In reality, the sacrifice will be the 5 million euros more, but you have to think about the record that Aymeric Laporte will have. At the moment, the Spanish-Frenchman gains 7.8 kilos a year in the English team. Ander Herrera has the same salary at Athletic, but the one who earns the most in the Leone squad is Iñaki Williams with an emolument of 11.4 kilos.
