Laporte was quoted in the French press as saying: “They [Barça] are one of the most important clubs in the word, but I would reject an offer from them.”

But the 21-year-old, again stressing that he has not been on the receiving end of any approaches from the Catalan outfit, told AS: “At no time did I make the statements that have been published by a number of media outlets.”

And he added: “All I said was that to reach a decision on an offer, first it has to exist and then it has to be analysed. What’s more, it would have to go through the club first.”

The talented defender is also wanted by Arsenal and Manchester United.
