I'm not upset that you lied to me, I'm upset that from now on I can't believe you. Friedrich Nietzsche

Now they say he is not going to join us! For weeks we have been bombarded with stories of how Barca have identified Aymeric Laporte as one of teh defensive reinforcements. Stories were broken about how the player and the FC Barcelona Futball club has reached personal agreement; how it's just a matter of time before we see the player wearing the renowned Barca jersey. Now they have a different take on all this. Why? Because Aymeric Laporte have renewed his contract with Atletic Bilbao, so did the club announced. Now the media pundits are saying that his arrival to Barca is not going to happen. one could ask why i never reported anything about this story. That's precisely because I never thought this will happen.

One reason I thought he never suited our needs was his age. We needed one marquee defender not a 20 year old. He may be one for the future but the teams need demands one for the present. Signing him is good, especially for the future but not a necessity. The only aspect that was changed in his contract renewal was the his buyout clause - which stands at 42 Million now instead of 36 Million. That clearly shows that Atletic may be happy selling him but they need a higher price. With Arsenal and Manchester United already interested, 42 Million could be too much for Barca. watch out for this space for any new development in this story.
