Signing Nathan Ake proving worthy for City

City signed the Dutchman in 2020 from Bournemouth for £40 million. Ever since his arrival Ake has played 125 matches for Guardiola’s side. Ake has been very important for the club in winning four consecutive league titles along with treble last year. It has been reported that Ake’s market value has been increased and is at £42 million which is more than many of City’s important players.

Kevin De Bruyne who is already a City legend has current market value around £17 million which is less than what Ake’s value is. However De Bruyne’s value has dropped due to missing a lot of games last season because of injuries. Ake also has market value more than three English stars. Jack Grealish and John Stones have current market value £34 million. Kyle Walker has even less than them at just £13 million. If City decide to sell Ake, they will definately demand more than £42 million which is current value of Dutch defender.
