Manchester City kicked off its mercato on Tuesday. With Ferran Torres, it presented its first major addition for next season. The Spanish flank attacker must replace Leroy Sané, but he will not be the only newcomer to City. The next acquisition would even arrive within 24 hours.
According to Sky Sports after all, the transfer of Nathan Aké will also be completed in the very short term. The Dutch defender is currently in Manchester, where he would take his medical tests. After that, nothing stands in the way of the transfer, because Bournemouth accepted a bid of 45 million euros a while ago.
With Aké, City would finally have his defender bite. After the departure of Vincent Kompany last summer, Pep Guardiola had many problems in his defense this season, including injuries to Stones and Laporte. As a result, midfielders Fernandinho and Rodri regularly had to break down in the back.
Nathan Ake is in Manchester and expected to undergo a medical at Manchester City in the next 24 hours ahead of completing a £41m transfer from Bournemouth.
