According to the Spanish media sources, Manchester United could sign Athletic Bilbao defender Aymeric Laporte for the next season, as the Red Devils are willing to pay around €43m to materialize the deal.
The president of the Basque club, Jose Urrutia has told the local media: “Laporte is a great player. There are some English clubs interested in him. He hasn’t yet made a final decision on his future. Everything will be decided in summer. Any interested club will have to meet the asking price.”
Manchester City and Chelsea are also believed to be in race to sign the Frenchman. However, the Red Devils are willing to sign two top class defenders for the next season: Mats Hummels and Aymeric Laporte.
