United to meet release clause for exciting transfer target.
Manchester United are tipped as the favourites to sign highly-rated Athletic Bilbao youngster Aymeric Laporte in a £32m deal, according to the Daily Mirror.
Laporte has impressed greatly in La Liga in recent times, also attracting strong interest from Chelsea and Arsenal ahead of January, though United look set to up their efforts to sign him.
The Red Devils are desperate to improve in defence this winter, and will meet the 20-year-old’s £32m release clause in the upcoming transfer window.
Louis van Gaal spent heavily over the summer on attacking players, and is ready to do so again here to improve his struggling back four.
