Laporte or Varane are superior to Stones they just aren’t overhyped by their national media which is what has happened with Stones. #mufc

MEN say United are interested in Laporte, he would be such a good addition to our team. Decent partner to Smalling + great for the future.

Been impressed by Laporte whenever I’ve seen him for Bilbao. Seems quick, reads game well. Hopefully we are in for him as the rumours say.
