Manchester City have signed Nathan Ake from Bournemouth for a reported £41-million on a five-year deal.
“City have been the best side in England over the course of the last decade,” Ake told the club’s website.
“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 [Guardiola] 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.”
