Aymeric Laporte’s Net Worth, Salary, Football Career, Honours
Aymeric Jean Louis Gérard Alphonse Laporte was born on the 27th of May 1994, and he is a professional footballer who plays as a centre-back for Premier League club Manchester City and the Spain national team. He previously played for Basconia and Athletic Bilbao.
Report from BBC sport has it that Laporte who arrived in Bilbao formally in 2010, joining Athletic’s youth setup at Lezama, prompting debate locally over whether his signing met the criteria of their policy due to his tenuous links to the Basque region. The player went on to play for the club’s youth and reserve teams. On the 28th of November 2012 he was given his debut with the main squad by manager Marcelo Bielsa, playing the full 90 minutes in a 2–0 away win against Hapoel Ironi Kiryat Shmon in that season’s UEFA Europa League.
In the month of June 2015, Laporte extended his link until 2019 with a release clause of €50 million. However, after losing the 2015 Copa del Rey Final to Barcelona, he played both legs of the 2015 Supercopa de España triumph against the same opposition, Bilbao’s first silverware for 31 years. On the 13th of June 2016, Laporte renewed his contract until 2020, with his buyout clause rising to an initial €65 million.
As per the BBC sport report, near the end of the winter transfer window of January 2018, Laporte signed for Manchester City for a reported fee of £57 million (his contractual release clause amount and a record-breaking figure for both clubs). The young star was given the number 14 shirt, while Bilbao immediately spent around half of the fee on Iñigo Martínez as a replacement.
The report has it that Laporte had been an automatic starter for Manchester City after his return from injury during the 2019–20 season and through the start of the 2020–21 season until a poor display in a 2–0 defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on the 21st of November 2020. John Stones replaced Laporte in the centre of defence and formed a formidable partnership with new signing Rúben Dias in Laporte’s absence from the starting lineup. On the 25th of April 2021, Laporte headed in the only goal of the game as City beat Tottenham to win their fourth straight EFL Cup.
ESPN sport report has it that Laporte represented France at under-17, under-18, under-19 and under-21 levels, captaining each side. And he was part of the team that came runners-up to Serbia in the 2013 UEFA European Under-19 Championship in Lithuania, and was selected in the Team of the Tournament.
The report has it that in the month of August 2019, he was called up for France’s UEFA Euro 2020 qualifying fixtures against Albania and Andorra; however just two days later he was injured playing for his club and ruled out of any involvement.
The same report still has it that in the month of May 2021, the Spanish Council of Ministers granted Spanish nationality to Laporte following a process initiated on his behalf by the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF); FIFA approved the change of nationality later that week, allowing him to play for Spain at the upcoming UEFA Euro 2020 tournament. The defender had previously claimed that “playing for Spain is out of the question” and that he would not apply for dual citizenship.
