Man United fans mock Man City over Nathan Ake transfer

manchestereveningnews: Manchester United fans believe Manchester City have overpaid to sign Nathan Ake from Bournemouth.

City are closing in on a £40million deal to sign the defender following Bournemouth’s relegation from the Premier League. Pep Guardiola is keen to improve his defence and the former Chelsea star is viewed as the ideal recruit.

United fans believed Ake could have been a target for their club after cameras caught Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in conversation with the defender following United’s win against the Cherries at Old Trafford.

Solskjaer laughed off the suggestions when the exchange was brought up during a press conference. “I’ve got seven centre-backs,” he said. “I don’t know where that’s come from. We’re fine.”

United’s defence has been questioned in recent weeks but supporters believe the club made the right move in not pursuing a deal for Ake as they feel he is overpriced given Eddie Howe’s men will be playing in the Championship next season.

United are still prioritising the signing of Borussia Dortmund star Jadon Sancho this summer and are relaxed over their pursuit for the 20-year-old.

The MEN understands United believe Dortmund are attempting to arouse interest in Sancho from other clubs to accelerate a deal before their pre-season fixtures start.
