Man City sign Bournemouth's Ake for £40m

Nathan Ake of AFC Bournemouth celebrates after scoring his team's second goal during the Premier League match between AFC Bournemouth and Aston Villa at Vitality Stadium on February 01, 2020 in Bournemouth, United Kingdom.

Manchester City have completed the signing of Bournemouth centre-back Nathan Ake in a £40m deal.

Netherlands international Ake, who has signed a five-year contract at Etihad Stadium, described joining Pep Guardiola's side as a "dream".

"Pep is a manager admired across the world, what he's done in the game speaks for itself," said Ake.

"The success he's had is unbelievable and the style of football he plays really appeals to me."

It is understood there is an additional £1m in add-ons as part of the deal.

Ake becomes the second summer signing for Pep Guardiola's side following the £21m arrival of Valencia winger Ferran Torres, 20, on Tuesday.

Ake joined Bournemouth in 2017 for a club record fee and has made 121 appearances for the Cherries.
