‘Hands Off’ ‘Give Us Messi And It’s A Deal’ Fans On Twitter Dismiss Claim That Barca Are Keen On Signing Key City Defender

Barcelona are weighing up a move for Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte, according to reports in the Spanish press. The Catalan club have been watching his progress since his time at Athletic Bilbao.

They have kept track of him following his Ā£57m move to City in 2018, and they have now added him to a shortlist of targets ahead of next summer.

Fans on Twitter don’t think City would consider letting Laporte leave:


Laporte is manager Pep Guardiola‘s key centre-back, especially after the retirement of captain Vincent Kompany last year, and the Frenchman has been missed since he was sidelined with a knee injury near the beginning of the campaign.

The only worry would be if the 25-year-old was looking to leave the club and return to Spain. He has shown no signs that he is keen on moving, though, and City will likely do all they can to keep hold of their best defender.
