A number of Manchester City fans don’t want Aymeric Laporte to leave the club after being hinted with a possible move away from the Citizens.
The season has now come to an end, and it has been a mixed one for City. While they won the Premier League and the Carabao Cup, they lost 1-0 in the Champions League final to Chelsea on Saturday as they missed out on the ultimate prize in European club football.
As such, there could be a shake-up at the Etihad Stadium this summer as Pep Guardiola and his squad get ready for the next season. That could well mean some departures, and according to Goal.com journalist Jonathan Smith, Laporte, Bernard Mendy and Raheem Sterling could all potentially depart.
It is the potential exit of the centre-back which seems to have particularly worried numerous City supporters. The 27-year-old won more headers per game (2.6) than anyone else in Guardiola’s squad during the season and was badly missed during the 2019/20 campaign, sidelined for several months through injury as City lagged well behind Liverpool in the Premier League that term.
Will Laporte leave the club this summer?
The news was shared on Twitter by @City_Xtra, and it attracted plenty of interest from some of the club’s fans. These supporters took to the social media platform to share their thoughts on the development.
Let’s see what these fans had to say about Laporte possibly being let go
“Laporte needs to stay”
“Laporte should be off limits”
“Please not Laporte, just let the other 2”
“Laporte would be a big mistake, others can leave”
“We can’t Lose @AumericLaporte, rather sacrifice @Ake”
“Laporte would be a massive loss”
