Manchester City ‘open talks with Bournemouth over Nathan Ake deal’


Bournemouth’s Nathan Ake might supposedly be on his way to Manchester City at the end of the season as Pep Guardiola aims to enhance at centre-back

Manchester City remain in conversations with Bournemouth over an offer for defender Nathan Ake, according to a report.

The People failed to change long-serving skipper Vincent Kompany last summer and lost Aymeric Laporte to a long-lasting injury previously this season.

City paid the rate as John Stones and Nicolas Otamendi were not able to sufficiently fill deep space, with boss Pep Guardiola yielding that centre-back had actually ended up being a problematic position.

The Athletic claims that City currently have strategies in location to generate a new long-lasting partner for fit-again Laporte, having actually connected to Bournemouth centre-back Ake.

Nevertheless, the offer might be made complex by a buyback stipulation that Premier League competitors Chelsea are rumoured to have actually placed in his contract when he joined the Cherries 3 years back.

Ake, thought to be valued in the region of ₤40 m, has actually made 116 appearances for Bournemouth in all competitions.
