Man City: Sky Blues now open to shock Laporte sale -Manchester City Transfer Rumours

Manchester City, and by extension manager Pep Guardiola, are now open to a shock summer sale as news emerges on mainstay defender Aymeric Laporte.

The Lowdown: Khaldoon sends message…

After the Sky Blues sealed a dramatic Premier League title win on the final day of 2021/2022, retaining their top flight crown with three goals in five minutes on the final day, a real summer of change may be looming.

Chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak has confirmed there will be more signings after City sealed moves for both Erling Haaland and Julian Alvarez with The Telegraph believing a left-back/midfielder is high on the agenda.

Just as many exits from Eastlands are possible with Raheem Sterling, Ilkay Gundogan, Riyad Mahrez and Gabriel Jesus all heading into the final year of their deals.

The champions are also open to offers for the likes of Oleksandr Zinchenko and Nathan Ake, but according to Corriere dello Sport (via Sport Witness), they aren’t the only players who could leave.

According to their information, City star defender Laporte is ‘not considered untransferable’ as the club become open to a possible sale.

This comes as Serie A giants Juventus re-ignite their interest in the Spaniard as they aim to bolster their defensive options with what Sport Witness call a ‘surprise’ move.

The Verdict: Surprise claim indeed…

Laporte’s phenomenal 2021/2022 campaign makes this update a surprise one to say the least.

As highlighted by WhoScored, the 28-year-old was a crucial player in helping Guardiola’s side build out from the back and break through opposition lines – averaging a higher pass accuracy (94.8%) than any player in the City squad.

Laporte also made the joint-fourth most appearances under Guardiola alongside fellow mainstay Rodri, becoming a fixture in the starting eleven and even working his way back in following both Ruben Dias and John Stones’ brilliant 2020/2021 partnership.

It’s little wonder Guardiola called the Spaniard’s season ‘incredible‘ with the Manchester Evening News claiming he’s ‘never been so important’ (Twitter).

This news that City could be open to a sale certainly comes as bizarre.
