Chelsea and Bournemouth faced each other this Saturday in a very special game for Nathan Ake. The Dutchman had the opportunity to play against his former team, but an unfortunate injury prevented him from being at Stamford Bridge.
Manchester City also want to challenge others for the signing of Nathan Ake in order to get a replacement for their broken defence. Chelsea have a buy-back option and there is a lot of interest from Stamford Bridge.
The English newspaper 'The Telegraph' states that Chelsea intend to incorporate Ake into their team. The 24-year-old defender, actually belongs to Bournemouth, but the London club could activate the buy-back clause that he has in his contract.
Now the summer transfer window has come to a close, the Premier League clubs are now looking to the month of January when they will go out to try and buy those players they could not get throughout the summer. This is the case of Chelsea with Ake.
We look at who Manchester City may consider as a replacement for long-serving captain Vincent Kompany, who announced today that he will be leaving Manchester City to join Belgian side, Anderlecht as a player-manager.
