Manchester City star Aymeric Laporte wants to leave the club and join Barcelona at the end of the season, APA reports.
Laporte isn't a regular starter under manager Pep Guardiola and has started just six games in the league this season. The 28-year-old is evidently below John Stones, Ruben Dias, Nathaniel Ake, and Manuel Akanji in the pecking order.
Barcelona wants a left-footed center-back, with Marcos Alonso filling in as a center-half on several occasions this campaign. Laporte wants to leave the Etihad and wants a move to Spotify Camp Nou if he is allowed to leave.
His contract expires at the end of the 2024-25 season, which gives the Cityzens a fair degree of control over his future. Laporte is also versatile enough to play as a left-back as well as a left-sided center-half in a back-three system.
