The centre-back completed his final training session as an Athletic Club player, a half hour session where he mostly ran with teammate Unai Núñez. Other reports in Spain state he underwent the first part of his City medical today, which will continue when he flies to Manchester early in the week.
And according to El Correo, the Frenchman said goodbye to teammates and staff, before leaving Lezama with signed home and away shirts.
City intend to pay Laporte’s €65million release clause on Monday and it is likely that the 23-year-old will travel to Manchester on the same day to begin his new English adventure.
