Manchester City has agreed to sign the contract with the relegated side Bournemouth over the defender Nathan Ake. It is known that the deal worths £40 million and a potential fee of £1 million.
The Netherland international has been at his best in the team since the premier league return even if Bournemouth was unable to retain their place in the premier league. Nathan Ake joined Bournemouth from Chelsea for a sum of £20 million in 2017. But he was on loan to the club before his contract was swapped to full signing.
Man city’s coach, Pep Guardiola is set for a busy summer with Napoli’s defender Kalidou Koulibaly. Another transfer that is been considered. He also looks forward to signing Valencia winger, Ferran Torres. The contract is set to be completed as the city looks forward to closing the gap on premier league champions, Liverpool.
There was a strong interest in Ake during the summer and his departure from Bournemouth became almost impossible when they were relegated from the English to flight. Man city remains the only club that has made an offer for the 25-year-old. Manchester City is in search of a central defender after they were overthrown by Merseyside reds to clinch the league title. He will replace the England international, John Stones since he has lost favor in the sight of Pep Guardiola.
Ake has appeared in 121 games for the cherries and has had 13 caps for his country. He has scored 11 goals in all his appearance. Cherries Boss Howe Eddie has had little interest in discussing Ake’s future before the end of the premier league. Ake’s move will see him work with Mancity defenders and has to please Guardiola to win a first-team shirt
Manchester city is also in talks with valencia for the signing of 20-year-old Ferran Torres. The city has agreed to pay £20.9 million for the valencia boy and talks over potential add-ons are still on. The under 21 Spanish winger is an attractive proposition after Leroy sane departed from Mancity
