Aymeric Laporte has signed a new Manchester City contract, keeping him at the Club until 2025.

The defender joined City in January 2018 and has quickly established a reputation as one of Europe’s finest centre-backs.

The Frenchman, 24, is quick, strong in the air and outstanding on the ball, with his unerring ability to switch play one of our most potent attacking weapons.

He’s played 36 times in all competitions this season, appearing in every single Premier League game to date.

“I could not be happier to commit my long-term future to Manchester City,” Laporte said. “Since the day I arrived here, I have been made to feel welcome by Pep and all the players.

“This Club offers me everything I need to improve my game. I’ve already made great strides and I want to continue getting better and better.

“Obviously, I want to win silverware and I feel City is the best place for to fulfil all my ambitions.”

Director of Football Txiki Begiristain added: “Aymeric is a huge talent and the fact he has committed his best years to us is something to celebrate.

“We knew before we brought him here that he had outstanding potential but his improvement over the past 12 months has been exceptional.

“We want to construct a young, vibrant side, and Aymeric fits perfectly into our plans. His style of play suits us and his attitude since the day he arrived has been first class.

“He can be as good as he wants to be, and Manchester City will be a better side with him in it over the coming seasons.”
