Manchester United and Manchester City remain in the hunt for Athletic Bilbao defender Aymeric Laporte.
Barcelona are regarded as favourites to land the Bilbao centre-half.
However, AS says the prospect of moving to England remains an option for Laporte.
Both City and United are battling for the Frenchman and will not blink should it come down to meeting his buyout clause.
Laporte can leave Bilbao for €50 million.
