Manchester United are chasing Athletic Bilbao defender Aymeric Laporte.

The Daily Star Sunday says Laporte – admired by Barcelona, Tottenham and Arsenal – has impressed United manager David Moyes’ scouts.

United spies have watched Laporte six times in the last three months and are determined that the France Under-21s star – who plays at centre-back or left-back – is definitely one for the future.

Laporte is under contract until 2018 and has a £30million buy-out clause to prise him from Bilbao.
