Manchester City signs Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake for £40m

Relegated Bournemouth has accepted a £40m bid from Manchester City for defender Nathan Ake.

According to sources familiar with the deal, the contract comes with an additional £1m in add-ons as part of the deal.

The Dutch defender Ake, 25, joined Bournemouth in 2017 for a club record fee and made 121 appearances for the Cherries.

Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola has been targeting at least one centre-back to bolster his squad next season and Ake has been a target for a while.
