Manchester City fans are desperate for Aymeric Laporte to stay at the club after his impressive performance for Spain against Portugal on Friday night.
City signed Laporte from Athletic Bilbao for £57m in 2018 (BBC), and he has proven to be a good signing for the club. During the 2018/19 campaign, he was particularly important, making 35 appearances in the Premier League (Transfermarkt) as the Citizens won the league by one point ahead of Liverpool (footballdatabase.com).
Last term, he did not play as big of a role, and therefore has been linked with a move away from the Etihad Stadium (mundodeportivo.com).
Born in France, £40.5m-valued Laporte (Transfermarkt) has decided to play for Spain after continually been overlooked by Didier Deschamps. On Friday, he made his debut for La Roja, and he helped his side keep a clean sheet, with one fan hailing his performance as a ‘masterclass’.
Will Laporte leave the club this summer?
The City fans were delighted with his display, and they urged him to stay at the club as a result. They took to social media platform Twitter to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about Laporte below
“Great game aymeric, hope u stay and prove evryone wrong in our team”
“Laporte masterclass on international debut… we can’t let him leave”
“He needs to start with Dias next season”
“mannn we cant let laporte go.”
“hope he stays he’s better than stones”
“Can’t let him go, need to get a run of games under his belt with Dias”
