Aymeric Laporte

DEFENDER WITH MANCHESTER CITY & FRENCH NATIONAL TEAM

One of world’s top center backs was courted past summers by both FC Barcelona, the best team in the last 10 years in Europe, and by coach Pep Guardiola, who finally signed him on January 2018 to lead his defense. The Basque player (Agen, May the 27th 1994) became soon a Manchester City's key player.

Laporte started playing for his city Sporting Union Agen and signed for Athletic Club in 2009 even though he was not able to effectively join them and play for the club until 2010 as an U18 player: due to Aymeric being a French player and to FIFA’s prohibition for signing European Union players under 16 years old. Player of great present and promising future, is one of the world’s best defensive players in the world with only 23 years old dut to his qualities: a great one on one, and great skills and talent for playing both long or short balls from the defense.
