Manchester City has signed Netherlands international Nathan Benjamin Aké from Bournemouth for a fee reportedly around £41million.
The 25-year-old defender penned down a five-years contract that will keep him at the Ethihad stadium till 2025.
Aké joined Bournemouth from Chelsea in 2017 for £20million.
“City have been the best side in England over the course of the last decade” Aké told Manchester City official website.
“Coming here is a dream for me. This is a top side full of world-class players. Every where you look in the squad there are big names with international pedigree.
Pep is a manager admired across the world. What he is doing in the game speaks for itself. The success he’s had is unbelievable and the style of football he play appeals to me.
“I know l’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” he said.
Aké made 29 appearances for Bournemouth last season as they were relegated to the Championship, finishing a point from safety in 18th place.
