According to shocking news, Aymeric Laporte is expected to turn his international allegiance and play at Euro 2020.
The Manchester City star has 51 caps for France at youth level, having played for their U17, U18, U19, and U21 teams.
At the senior level, however, he has been ignored by France coach Didier Deschamps. He has been called up on occasion but has yet to make an appearance.
Les Bleus seem to be on the verge of losing Laporte, who will change his nationality to Spain, according to MARCA.
The 26-year-old defender was born in the French Basque country and is set to switch his focus to the Spanish national team due to his dual nationality.
Spain's head coach, Luis Enrique, requested that the board investigate the player's situation in order for him to be selected for the upcoming summer championships.
According to reports, both the player and FIFA have given their approval for Laporte to play for Spain, with an official decision expected today.
On May 21, Enrique is expected to select a 26-man squad for the Euros, with Laporte expected to be included.
Eric Garcia, Real Madrid legend Sergio Ramos, Villarreal's Pau Torres, and Athletic Bilbao's Inigo Martinez are among La Roja's current defensive choices.
