Barcelona is interested in signing Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte at the end of the season.
The Camp Nou outfit is ready to test a resolve of Manchester City over the deal to bring the former Athletic Bilbao defender back to Spain.
Mundo Deportivo says Barca want to find a new centre-half this summer and have put Laporte high on their agenda.
A bid is being prepared for City’s consideration – through the Catalans know they face an uphill battle to bring the former Athletic Bilbao stopper back to the LaLiga.
Just this week, Laporte said: “I am very happy here at Manchester City.
“I am enjoying my football here.
“We are doing great things here. In the last two, years we have won eight trophies.”
