Barcelona ‘seduce’ Man City star – Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid remain options for disgruntled player
After a season where the 27-year-old has found himself displaced from Pep Guardiola’s starting XI thanks to staggering performances from John Stones and Ruben Dias, the Spaniard appears ready to seek greener pastures.
And while some reports suggest he might consider heading to Madrid (either club will do), Mundo Deportivo pretend that Barcelona is the ‘the team that appeals to him the most’.

According to the report relayed by Sports witness, Aymeric Laporte likes Ronald Koeman’s side.
This desire is reinforced by the fact that his two friends and former teammates, Sergio Agüero and Eric García, joined the Catalan club just two weeks ago.
The latter raised the possibility of Laporte joining the La Liga giants in a exclusive interview with the Spanish media this week, in which he said: “I do not know. We haven’t talked about that. We are focused on the Euro, but if he comes to us, he is obviously a great player. “

However, Barcelona’s financial situation remains a mystery, with numerous reports claiming they won’t have the money to splash big in the summer transfer market.
As a result, any chance the Catalan club will secure the services of the Manchester City defender will depend on whether the Premier League champions accept some form of swap deal.
