Athletic Bilbao’s latest top youth product Aymeric Laporte has been touted to join a bigger club over the last couple of transfer windows, but no move is yet to come to fruition. Manchester United shown an interest in the 21-year old defender, but no concrete bid was made.
Laporte has now spoken out about the transfer, saying that he is happy at Bilbao and he wants to win trophies there.
“My name is mentioned in every transfer window and with a lot of teams,” Laporte said.
“I’ve renewed four times with Athletic. I’ve done what I wanted, I’ve shown confidence in the club and them in me. Let’s see if we can add more trophies.”
At the end of the day the chances of him moving clubs in the future is highly likely. The worlds best will come in for him in the not too distant future, and those moves may be hard to turn down for the young Frenchman.
