Manchester United in contact with Athletic Bilbao defender Aymeric Laporte

Manchester United are in talks with Athletic Bilbao defender Aymeric Laporte.

Sport says the 21-year-old continues to be linked with a move to Old Trafford, despite the uncertainty over who the club’s manager will be next season.

Whoever is in the dugout at the Theatre of Dreams will be keen to strengthen a beleaguered backline, which has suffered several injury problems this term.

The France Under-21 international has made over 100 appearances in the league for his current employers since breaking through into the first team in 2012.
