Manchester United interested in Athletic Bilbao defender Aymeric Laporte

The 21-year-old’s current contract with Bilbao features a £32million buyout clause, making the possibility of a switch to Old Trafford a little more complex.

United are believed to consider the left-footed central defender as the perfect player to accompany Chris Smalling in the heart of United’s defence.

Laporte has been identified by the Red Devils as a potential summer transfer target along with Everton’s John Stones and Real Madrid’s Raphael Varane.
