With the arrival of Josko Gvardiol reportedly getting closer, chances for first team football at City may be slim for the City defender.
Laporte only made 24 appearances for the champions last season, after a injury delayed start to the season.
City’s Spanish international fell down the pecking order at City last season. Pep Guardiola preferred Ruben Dias, John Stones, Manuel Akanji and Nathan Ake over Laporte last season.
If reports are correct of multiple clubs interested in the City defender, there may be a resolution on the horizon in regards to Laporte’s future.
