Man City have set their price for defender Aymeric Laporte, and he could be the perfect buy for CHELSEA.

There has been constant speculation in the media that we are eyeing up a number of possible defenders between now and the end of the transfer window in order to solve a very big problem in the squad

Shock reports emerged in the media last month that the club have contacted Man City about a possible deal for the impressive Laporte -who is one of the very best defenders in world football

WHAT HAS HAPPENED –

If you believe the reports on the GOAL website – Man City have now made the decision to allow Laporte to depart the club over the next few months and they will let him leave for just £25 million.

And if you believe the words of reporter Iomie Stanley – he could be the perfect signing for Pochettino.

WHAT HAS BEEN SAID:

‘He is the ideal man to come in and help sort out those defensive issues for Mauricio Pochettino – he is a leader and a man that could be in that side for the next five or six years.

‘Man City made the decision to sell to Arsenal last summer and they became Premier League contenders – so that is why Chelsea will have a very hard time trying to get a deal done.

‘However – if Guardiola does not see much of a threat from CHELSEA because of their poor season last year – then he will do business with the Blues and let the defender make the move to London.

‘And guys – he could be a world class signing for Chelsea and Poch – perfect even.’
