Aymeric Laporte’s future at the Etihad is in doubt as Manchester City pursues a move for Josko Gvardiol. Last year, Laporte’s playing time was drastically cut; this year, he has even more competition for a starting berth, which could force him to consider a move.
The situation has not gone unnoticed by Juventus, especially in light of Leonardo Bonucci’s possible exit. Corriere dello Sport reported on this, naming Laporte as Max Allegri’s latest transfer target. The Spanish international player from Manchester City might reportedly be purchased for roughly €30 million.
Aymeric Laporte is a prominent candidate for the starting center-back role at Juventus, according to both Allegri & Cristiano Giuntoli – the club’s new director of football.
A deal could be finalized this summer, depending on Manchester City’s official request and Juventus’ financial situation. It’s worth noting that in 2018, Man City paid Athletic Club €65m to sign Laporte away from them.
