‘Fight for your place man’, ‘that’s a very weak mentality’ – Fans reacts as Man City titan ‘Open To Offers’ With La Liga Giant Circling

Must read

Manchester City fans have been reacting to a post on Twitter which relays a report that claims Aymeric Laporte would be ‘open to offers’ this summer, after falling behind Ruben Dias and John Stones last season.

Laporte was City’s best defender during their title-winning campaign two years ago, but a serious knee problem saw him miss the majority of last season, whilst the arrival or Ruben Dias from Benfica last summer saw the Frenchman lose his place in the team.

Earlier this week, Mundo Deportivo reported Aymeric Laporte is doubting his future at Manchester City after losing his place in Pep Guardiola’s regular starting eleven due to the scintillating form of teammates John Stones and Ruben Dias.

According ESPN’s Moi Llorens and Samuel Marsden, Laporte would be ‘open to offers’ this summer, and while all three big La Liga clubs have been mentioned in the conversation, FC Barcelona have risen to the top of the list.

However, the report claims the Catalan club would not be able to fit the Manchester City man in their squad unless they can offload two centre-backs. Firstly, Barca would look to find a new home for Samuel Umtiti, and if successful would look to move on one more defender, with Clement Lenglet being an option.

Barcelona have already signed Sergio Aguero and Eric Garcia from City this summer via free transfers and Laporte could become the third player to join the La Liga Club in this summer’s transfer window.

Should City move Laporte on this summer, it would leave Nathan Ake as the only back up to regular pairing Dias and John Stones.

In reaction to the report shared on Twitter by City Xtra, Many Man City fans have been expressing their thoughts and opinions.
