Man City plan to move for £85m defender should Aymeric Laporte leave the Etihad.
Man City could make a move for RB Leipzig’s Josko Gvardiol this summer should Aymeric Laporte head for the exit door at the Etihad.
The futures of several City stars are up in the air heading towards the upcoming transfer window with captain Ilkay Gundogan, Bernardo Silva and Aymeric Laporte all linked with moves away.
Barcelona is interested in all three, and PSG is keeping an eye on the Portugal international’s position at Manchester United.
If Laporte leaves in the coming months, Man City will attempt to complete a massive transfer by bringing Gvardiol to the Premier League, according to the Daily Mail.
The rumored asking price for Gvardiol is £85 million, but RB Leipzig may have to pay more to allow the Croatia international to leave.
The 21-year-old is one of Europe’s best defenders and is on his way to becoming the best in his position. It’s frightening to think of what Pep Guardiola would achieve with the Croatian great, since his addition would further strengthen Man City’s grip on the Premier League.
