Nathan Ake completes his move from Bournemouth to Manchester City

City agreed an initial £40million deal with the Cherries who were relegated on the final day of the Premier League season which later could rise to £41million.

City announced the deal shortly after announcing the signing of Valencia winger Ferran Torres who was signed as replacement for Leroy Sane who left to join Bayern Munich.

Speaking about his move Ake said: ‘City have been the best side in England over the course of the last decade.

‘Coming here is a dream for me. This is a top side full of world-class players. Everywhere you look in this squad there are big names with international pedigree.

‘Pep 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.

‘I know I’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.’

The deal was reported last that City had agreed a deal with Bournemouth worth £40 million and has now been made offical.

The Dutchman has undergone his medicals and also agreed personal terms with City.  Ake is reported to have signed a deal worth £40,000 a week for five years at the Ethihad.
