A number of Manchester City fans are delighted after it emerged the Citizens are in fact looking to hold on to Aymeric Laporte this summer.
The centre-back, who signed for the club in 2018, had a fantastic impact early on his City career, making 35 appearances in the Premier League during his first full season (Transfermarkt) as the Citizens won the title and achieving an impressive 7.05 average match rating from WhoScored in 2018/19.
However, for those who want Laporte to stay at the Etihad Stadium, there has been a positive update. As per AS, City are now looking to keep the £40.5m-valued Spain international (Transfermarkt) at the club this summer, while the Premier League champions do not intend to sign another centre-back this summer.
