Man Utd and Man City set for battle to sign Athletic Bilbao star

Manchester United and Manchester City will reportedly battle it out to sign Athletic Bilbao defender Aymeric Laporte in the summer.

The 21-year-old is regarded as one of Europe’s most highly-rated youngsters and is expected to leave the Spanish side this summer.

Laporte signed a new contract with the club last summer, but AS reports that the Basque club expects the Frenchman to leave.

Laporte reportedly has a €50million buyout clause in his contract and both City and United are prepared to meet that clause.

Barcelona are also reportedly keeping tabs on the defender.
