Athletic Bilbao defender Aymeric Laporte appeared to suffer a horror injury while on international duty with France's Under-21 side on Thursday evening. 

The talented youngster had to be stretchered off in the clash between France and Scotland after falling awkwardly on his right knee. 

The 21-year-old appeared to be in a great deal of pain as he left the pitch and it's far from certain as to how long he will be on the sidelines for.

As you can see in the video below, it doesn't look good for him at this stage. 

And that could be a blow to Premier League outfit Manchester City, who have been heavily linked with his signature recently. 

Bayern Munich boss Pep Guardiola is set to take over at the Citizens at the end of the season and it's expected that the club are set to invest heavily in the pursuit of success under the new regime. 

But City may well have second thoughts after seeing Laporte's major injury blow. One thing is for sure, the club will keep an eye out for any developments regarding the injury over the coming weeks and months. 

Let's hope that it isn't too long before we see one of the most exciting young defenders in Europe return to the field. 

Is Laporte good enough for City? Have your say below!
