, Aymeric Laporte ‘asks to QUIT Man City’ after John Stones and Ruben Dias keep him out of Premier League champions’ XI

AYMERIC LAPORTE wants to leave Manchester City this summer, according to reports.

The Spain international fell behind John Stones and Ruben Dias in the pecking order at the Etihad last season.

Aymeric Laporte is reportedly unhappy with his role at Man City
Ruben Dias and John Stones have built a solid partnership

And according to Duncan Castles on the Transfer Window Podcast, he is now ‘unhappy’ at the club.

He also revealed that Barcelona have shown an interest, but would struggle to afford a deal this summer.

And that Laporte is ‘pushing’ City to facilitate his exit.

Castles then added that the defender is ‘kicking up enough of a fuss’ to ‘pressure the club into finding a solution’.

Laporte, 27, joined City in a bumper £65million deal back in January 2018.

He was initially a key player when fit, but found himself diminish in status after Dias’ arrival last summer.

That, plus the renaissance of Stones, has seen Laporte relegated to third choice at the back.

He made just 14 starts in the Premier League last term, with a further three coming in the Champions League.
