Manchester City fans think Aymeric Laporte is leaving the club following his latest comments ahead of the Champions League final on Saturday.
During the 2018/19 campaign, Laporte was one of the Citizens’ best players as they won the Premier League title ahead of Liverpool by a single point. He played 35 times in the league (Transfermarkt) under Pep Guardiola as City conceded just 23 goals in the competition.
However, he suffered a serious injury last season, which massively curtailed his playing time, and he has been unable to reclaim his place since recovering as Guardiola has generally selected John Stones and Ruben Dias ahead of him. As a result, he has played just 16 times in the league this campaign.
Will Laporte leave the club this summer?
Speaking prior to the final in Porto, £45m-valued Laporte (Transfermarkt) suggested he does not know what the future holds for him and mentioned his lack of playing time. The comments were shared on Twitter by @City_Xtra, and the City fans now think he will soon be leaving. The supporters took to the social media platform to share their thoughts.
Let’s see what the fans had to say about the Laporte comments below
“He’s leaving isn’t he?”
“Yeah I think he might leave”
“He’s leaveing. Painful to say but he’s leaving. Too big to be a squad player.”
“He’s off then …. Pep hinted yesterday at some big changes too. Wouldn’t be shocked to see him and Sterling go.”
