Aymeric Laporte will finally get his due in international football. Breaking this morning, the star defender has chosen Spain after repeated refusals from France and their federation to call him up. El Chiringuito’s Jose Alvarez had the report-
LAPORTE YA ES ESPAÑOL— El Chiringuito TV (@elchiringuitotv) May 11, 2021
Mañana se oficializará en el BOE su nacionalización y sería CONVOCABLE por Luis Enrique. (Vía @10JoseAlvarez) pic.twitter.com/zTXpTXA6ZO
Same report had Spain manager Luis Enrique ask for him personally after he knew this was a possible idea. Spain is not the deepest in center backs and with Sergio Ramos could quickly have one of Europe’s best defense. Laporte himself made his name in Spain as he was a stalwart for Athletic Bilbao before signing for City.
This is a great get by Spain as they look to challenge at the Euro’s 2021.
