Spain fear losing Man City defender Aymeric Laporte to France

Spain fear losing Manchester City defender Aymeric Laporte.

The former Athletic Bilbao defender also qualifies for France and was called up for World Cup qualifiers against Bulgaria and Holland. However he remains available to Spain as he did not make his Les Bleues debut.

RFEF chiefs see Laporte as a long-term successor for Barcelona defender Gerard Pique. Sacked Spain coach Julen Lopetegui had planned to call him up after the World Cup.

But now the plans are in a spin with Spain needing to find a new coach and Laporte closer to committing to France.
