Barcelona is seeking to include a number of players in the transfer market this summer, and Argentine Sergio Aguero came to be the first deal announced by the Blaugrana, after his departure from Manchester City.
According to “The Athletic”, the talk is going on inside the corridors of Manchester City about the club’s intention to open the door to the departure of another player from the team, the center of defense Emeric Laporte, while Barcelona remains one of the clubs interested in obtaining his services.
Laporte is interested in returning to the Spanish league
The English report indicated that Manchester City will not stand in front of the departure of the former Athletic Bilbao defender in light of the presence of the duo Robin Diaz and John Stones in the team, and the club also hopes to obtain an amount from his sale that contributes to creating a balance after the expected investment in the contract with Tottenham star Harry Kane.
Also, Laporte, who has a contract with Manchester City until 2025, remains interested in returning to play in the Spanish League, which he will achieve if he moves to Barcelona.
Barcelona is preparing to announce the contract with his colleague Eric Garcia in the coming hours, after the end of his contract with the Citizens, and it may also include both Jorginho Vinaldum, who became a free agent after his contract with Liverpool expired, as well as Memphis Depay, whose contract expires in turn with Lyon.
