Manchester City continue to assert their dominance in the Premier League as they inflicted a heavy defeat upon Burnley yesterday.
The Citizens now sit pretty at the top of the table after nine games, with the Premier League title race beginning to hot up with Liverpool in second place. And, to make things even better, it appears as if City are eyeing a potential addition, as according to Sun Sport, Man City are contemplating a move for Nathan Ake.
Pep Guardiola will weigh up a £40 million bid for Nathan Ake in January.
The Manchester City boss is ready to rival neighbours Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur in the race to sign the Bournemouth centre-back.
Guardiola looked at the 23-year-old in the summer and he has since become one of the stand-out defenders in the Premier League.
And, the Holland international would boost City’s home-grown quota too, after starting his career at the Chelsea Academy before sealing his move to the Cherries.
Nathan Ake has all the makings to become one of the world’s best defenders, and moving to Manchester City may just take him to the next level and aid his development even more.
Indeed, Vincent Kompany is coming towards the end of his career in Manchester, so perhaps Pep Guardiola is looking to bring Ake in as a long-term replacement for the Belgian.
