The 23-year-old is a regular in the football gossip columns, repeatedly being linked with a move to some of European football's biggest names.
Former France Under-21s international Laporte has confirmed that there was concrete interest from elsewhere during the off-season, but he opted to stay at San Mames for at least another year.
Asked by L'Equipe about the links to City and Chelsea, he said: "I had the chance to leave but I did not feel it. Also because I was injured and did not want to leave so. Chelsea's interest? I can not say anything, it's a personal thing."
Laporte, a part of the Bilbao setup since 2010, has featured in all eight of the club's La Liga games so far in 2017-18.
