Netherlands International signs.

Nathan Ake

Manchester City have signed Dutch international defender Nathan Ake from Bournemouth.

Ake has been confirmed on a five-year deal, keeping him at City until the summer of 2025.

Ake said of the deal-

“City have been the best side in England over the course of the last decade,” he said.

“Coming here is a dream for me. This is a top side full of world-class players. Everywhere you look in this squad there are big names with international pedigree.

“Pep is a manager admired across the world – what he’s done in the game speaks for itself. The success he’s had is unbelievable and the style of football he plays really appeals to me.

“I know I’m going to have to work hard to get into the side, but that’s what I’m here to do. I’ll do whatever I can to make an impact and help the team win silverware.”

A Dutch international and one of Bournemouth’s best players is a great coup for City. The price while a bit high at 40 million euros +. should provide stability in defense. He should be a great addition to the locker room and as a utility player given he can play center and fullback.

Welcome, Nathan
