This came just two days after they agreed a £24.5m deal to sign Valencia winger Ferran Torres.

With this new deal for Nathan Aké, Manchester City have now spent a total of £64.5m this summer on player signings.

Pep Guardiola turned his attention to Nathan Aké after failing to reach an agreement with Napoli over Kalidou Koulibaly.

Aké’s departure became unstoppable after Bournemouth got relegated from the Premier League, with Aké being the only high earning player in Bournemouth without a relegation salary reduction clause.

Bournemouth were set to keep on paying Aké about £80,000 a week if they had not sold him to City.

Guardiola has made the strengthening of his defense his top priority after their dismal title defense this season. The English giants have struggled in defense this season after Vincent Kompany left the club.

Aké is expected to cut his holiday short to undergo a medical at the Manchester City stadium in a few days. Other Bournemouth stars like Callum Wilson, Josh King, and Aaron Ramsdale are all expected to leave the Vitality Stadium in a few weeks.
