‘Solid Signing’ ‘Way Better Than Stones And Otamendi’ Fans React To Reports That City Are ‘Close’ To Agreeing £35m Transfer

Manchester City are “close” to agreeing a deal for Bournemouth defender Nathan Ake, according to the Guardian.

The Citizens have moved quickly to strengthen their centre-back options after a season blighted by poor defensive displays, with the Dutchman now poised to make the switch to the Etihad for £35m.

Supporters on Twitter had a mostly positive reaction to the news:


The former Chelsea player has been linked with a return to Stamford Bridge over the past year but, despite having a buyback option on the player, the Blues have opted against re-signing the 25-year-old.

Ake has also been mentioned as a potential target for Manchester United but it looks like he will be wearing the colours of City next season if the move is finalised.

It is not thought that the Netherlands international will be the only new centre-back arriving this summer, with the likes of Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly, Leicester’s Caglar Soyuncu and Benfica’s Ruben Dias also being considered as potential targets.
