Al-Nassr, where Portuguese footballer Cristiano Ronaldo practices his craft, has acquired Aymeric Laporte from Manchester City, continuing the Saudi Arabian teams’ dominance of the summer transfer market.

After spending £77 million for the 21-year-old defender from Croatia, Josko Gvardiol, City agreed to an undisclosed amount for him.

The Citizen’s transfer market has been strategic this season with Pep Guardiola, the Coach, concentrating on picking A-list players only.

City boast of an array of top defenders and the arrival of Gvardiol means Laporte is surplus to requirement.

Laporte, 29, made 43 starts during the 2021-22 season for the treble winners with Guardiola preferring the duo of Manuel Akanji and Nathan Ake more often, which limited Laporte’s appearances.
