Aymeric Laporte ‘To Have Manchester City Medical On Monday’ Ahead Of £57m Move

Centre-back Laporte has been a virtual ever-present for Athletic Bilbao this season

Aymeric Laporte has undergone the first part of medical checks ahead of his £57million move to Manchester City.

The Athletic Bilbao defender was left out of their squad against Eibar on Friday evening and is due to join City on Tuesday once his buy-out clause is deposited with the Spanish Football Federation.

Laporte said his farewells to teammates at Bilbao on Saturday who signed shirts wishing him well in his next move.

The 23-year-old broke his leg and dislocated his ankle in 2016 and underwent an examination, including blood tests, at the Lezama training complex ahead of his proposed transfer.

City are still looking to add Brazilian midfielder Fred from Shakhtar Donetsk this month and have held discussions over the signing of Lille’s 18-year-old midfielder Boubakary Soumare and have lined up a summer deal for Paris St Germain’s 18-year-old Claudio Gomes.

City have taken over the contract of USA international Mix Diskerud after he was released by New York City. The 27-year-old is expected to train with the club’s U23 squad ahead of a possible loan.
