After considering signing him, FC Barcelona seem to have abandoned the track leading to Aymeric Laporte.
Aymeric Laporte saw his comeback in the Spanish La Liga this summer by leaving Manchester City for FC Barcelona, but that will not be possible in the end. The Catalan club withdrew from the race on his signing. This is what the daily Sport reveals in its Saturday edition.
The neo international Spanish had had serious touches with the decision makers blaugrana. There was talk of attracting him to Nou Camp and associating him with his friend in La Roja, Eric Garcia. The idea was appealing, but she didn’t live too long.
Barça can no longer recruit
The vice-champions of Spain have ended their interest in Laporte as well as that of Juventus full-back Matthijs de Ligt, because they just don’t have the funds to enlist him. Before thinking of getting stronger, there is an urgent need to sell items, especially since the Messi case has still not been settled. Barça would still keep an eye on the duo, should the situation develop favorably.
