Manchester City is giving defender Aymeric Laporte the choice to decide whether he wants to leave the club this month.
Laporte had a limited role in the 2022/23 season as City achieved a historic trophy treble and their first-ever Champions League title.
He has yet to start a game this season and City is prepared to let him go.
Laporte, who is 29 years old, wants consistent playing time at the club level in order to secure his starting place with Spain for Euro 2024.
City has reportedly accepted an offer from Al Nassr, a club in Saudi Arabia.
This move would add Laporte to the growing list of players heading to the Middle East, with Al Nassr shifting their focus from Barcelona’s Clement Lenglet to Laporte.
According to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, City is ready to approve the sale, but the final decision will be left to Laporte, and manager Pep Guardiola is open to keeping him as a backup option.
