Laporte joined Al Nasr from Manchester City. Spanish footballer Emeric Laporte has joined Saudi club Al Nasr from Manchester City. His contract with the club is three years. News from Fabrizio Romano.
Manchester City had already reached an agreement with Al Nasr. All that was left was Laporte’s consent. Having got that, the Spanish footballer has changed teams. Laporte will receive a salary of $20 million per year in a three-year contract. City will receive 30 million euros due to this transfer.
Laporte is 29. He still has a lot to offer in top level football. Despite this, why did Guardiola sell such a potential star? It is believed that such a decision of the citizens is due to the offer of huge amount of money.
Al Nasr Laporte will have footballers like Ronaldo, Alex Telles, Sadio Mane, David Ospina, Marcelo Brzovic and Talisca as teammates.
Laporte joined Manchester City in 2018 from Athletic Club. He became coach Guardiola’s favorite despite getting injured at times. Evidence of that can be found in his match appearances at City over the last 6 years. The centreback has played 180 matches for the Citizens, scoring 12 goals and 4 assists.
