Manchester City will now have their sights set firmly on retaining the Premier League title and going all the way in the Champions League, with three more trophies still up for grabs.
The Citizens have been the form team in the Premier League in recent times but they’ll need to go up a gear in the coming weeks, as Liverpool now hold a one point lead at the top after bagging themselves a point against Manchester United earlier.
Interestingly, Pep Guardiola managed to secure a player agreement recently, as according to Manchester City’s official website, Aymeric Laporte has signed a new Manchester City contract.
Laporte joined City in January of last year and has quickly established himself as one of Europe’s finest central defenders, so the Manchester club will be delighted to have tied him down to a new deal.
“I could not be happier to commit my long-term future to Manchester City,” Laporte said. “Since the day I arrived here, I have been made to feel welcome by Pep and all the players.
“This Club offers me everything I need to improve my game. I’ve already made great strides and I want to continue getting better and better.
“Obviously, I want to win silverware and I feel City is the best place for to fulfil all my ambitions.”
Aymeric Laporte has played a big part for Manchester City up until this point in the current campaign, so it comes as no surprise that City have secured his services for even longer.
Indeed, the Frenchman is still fairly young and has his best years ahead of him, so fans will be excited to see how he develops in seasons to come at the Etihad.Like what the TT have on offer? Sign up for more notifications!
