PEP COY ON LAPORTE LINK


Pep Guardiola refused to be drawn on Manchester City’s pursuit of Athletic Bilbao defender Aymeric Laporte and admitted transfer deals are difficult to complete.

City are close to signing Laporte and are willing to match his £57m release clause, breaking the club's current transfer record of £55m, which they paid for Kevin De Bruyne in 2015.

Asked for an update on negotiations for Laporte, Guardiola said: "No I can't, sorry. He's a player of Athletic Bilbao. "I didn't speak about previous players or talk about that in here so I will not do that. You will know if it happens, it happens, if it doesn't, it doesn't happen."
