Man City accept Al Nassr’s bid for Laporte


English club Manchester City have reportedly accepted an offer for Ayermic Laporte from Saudi Arabian side Al Nassr.

Laporte is thought to be open to the possibility of a move to the Saudi state, joining a host of stars who have already moved.

The 29-year-old defender struggled for minutes at City last year, making just 12 Premier League appearances and was a substitute during Friday’s win over Burnley.

He still has two years left on his contract with City, but has accepted a transfer to Al Nassr, after reaching a personal agreement.


Laporte has also seen increased competition at City in the summer, with Josko Guardiol, another centre-back, having arrived from RB Leipzig for €90m.

Al Nassr, meanwhile, have so far signed big-spending Sadio Mane, Marcelo Brozovic, Seko Fofana and Alex Telles in mid-summer.

They also brought in Cristiano Ronaldo last December following his departure from Manchester United.
