Manchester City Signs Defender Nathan Ake from Bournemouth

Man City have completed the signing of Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake for £41m on a five-year deal. FC Bournemouth which finished the 2019/2020 Premier League season in the 18th position were relegated from the English Top Flight to the second division ; the EFL Championship, agreed to sell their defender Nathan Ake. The 25-year-old Netherlands international underwent his medical in manchester on wednesday. This signing will surely bolster Manager Pep Guardiola's defence as he seeks to win the Premier league next season.

One of the reasons why Manchester City lost the Premier League title to Liverpool this season was because they failed to sign a replacement for Vincent Kompany.

Ake, who has won 13 caps for the Netherlands, has played for Chelsea, Watford and Reading would surely be a great defensive card for Pep to play. He is able to take passes in tight situations and trigger attacks as seen in his games played for both Chelsea and Bournemouth and he is also good in the air.

More defensive spending is anticipated to further Strengthen the Man City defense.
