Manchester City centre-back Aymeric Laporte (29) will join Al-Nassr after agreeing to sign for the PIF-funded Saudi Arabian side, according to a report from Foot Mercato this Sunday.
The Agen-born Spanish international is set to put pen to paper over a three-year deal with Al-Nassr. Laporte will link up with the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Sadio Mané, Seko Fofana and Marcelo Brozović in Riyad.
Laporte joined Manchester City from Athletic Bilbao in a €65m deal five years ago. He went on to play 180 games with Pep Guardiola’s side, winning five Premier League titles (2018, 2019, 2021, 2022 and 2023) as well as the 2023 Champions League during City’s treble-winning campaign. The Spaniard was no longer in City’s plans for the future following the €90m purchase of Croatian international centre-back Joško Gvardiol.
The French publication understands that Laporte is set to earn close to €25m per year with Al-Nassr. Foot Mercato adds that the centre-back’s switch from Manchester to Riyad is entering its final stages.
