Man City eyeing huge bid for one of Europe’s brightest prospects

Our Manchester City fans here in the Transfer Tavern are beginning to get excited again and, according to The Mirror, things could be about to get even better.

The Citizens had a bit of a wobble over the Christmas period as they lost ground in the title race but they now appear to be back to their ominous best.

Indeed, they’ve been looking brilliant going forward in particular in recent weeks and, whilst that might not be enough to catch Chelsea this season, the top four certainly looks on.

And, ahead of a potentially exciting campaign next year, it appears they are ready to go back for Aymeric Laporte.

The young French defender had been linked in the summer with the club over a £39 million move but that did not come to pass as he signed a new deal with current club Athletic Bilbao.

That deal saw a £55 million release clause inserted, too, but it looks like City are more than willing to match that to bring him into their defence.

Our landlord really rates Laporte and thinks he’d surely be the leading light for the club at the back – ahead of John Stones.

Thoughts, City fans? Let us know below!
