OFFICIAL: Manchester City complete the signing of Bournemouth's Nathan Aké
Manchester City have officially announced the signing of Bournemouth's Nathan Aké for a fee of £40 million, rising to £41 million with add-ons.
Earlier last week, various reports broke the news that the first official bid placed by Manchester City had been accepted by the recently relegated South-coast side. After travelling back from his post-season holiday with his family, Aké agreed personal terms on Wednesday afternoon and signed a five-year contract with the Blues.
Despite Bournemouth's relegation this season, Aké made a total of ZERO mistakes leading to goals - something which surely was a major issue in Manchester City's failed title defence this season.
The 25-year-old joins the club very highly-rated and someone Manchester City fans can rely on in central defence. Scoring two goals in the Premier League last season, Aké is also someone who can pose a real threat in the oppositions box from corners and free-kicks.
Welcome to Manchester, Nathan!
