Manchester City announced on Wednesday that they have signed defender Nathan Ake from Bournemouth on a five-year-deal. The Premier League club did not disclose the financial details of the transfer. However, British media reported that City paid Bournemouth 40 million pounds to sign Ake. City has to pay an additional 1 million pounds in add-ons.
“Pep (Guardiola) 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,” he said.
Ake is City’s second rectuit in the off season. The club signed Spanish winger Ferran Torres from Valencia on a five-year contract on Tuesday. The British media reported the deal to be worth 23 million euros.
