Aymeric Laporte: Athletic Bilbao defender has no plans to move this summer

Aymeric Laporte: Athletic Bilbao defender has no plans to move this summer

The 20-year-old has established himself as first choice centre-back at Bilbao, and made 35 league appearances last season, scoring two goals.

Amid speculation over the France Under-21 international's future, Laporte has no plans to move away from Bilbao this summer, despite being flattered by links to two of Europe's biggest clubs.

"Am I going to leave this summer? No, I am happy at Bilbao," he told L'Equipe.

"I have a €36million release clause and if one day a departure could become possible, I would think about it.

"Interest from Barcelona and Bayern Munich is impressive and rewarding. But I believe you have to take it with a kind of casualness as long as there is nothing concrete.

"Barcelona has won everything in recent years. It is a dream for anyone. Bayern are also one of the best teams in the world.

"But I repeat, I am under contract at Athletic until 2018.

"Would it be a disappointment to stay at Athletic? Not at all. I will remain in a great team, playing in one of the best leagues in the world."
