Manchester City have signed Bournemouth centre-back Nathan Ake for £40m.
The Netherlands international, who has agreed a five-year contract at Etihad Stadium, described joining Pep Guardiola’s side as a “dream”.
“Pep is a manager admired across the world. What he’s done in the game speaks for itself,” said 25-year-old Ake.
“The success he’s had is unbelievable and the style of football he plays really appeals to me.”
It is understood there is an additional £1m in add-ons as part of the deal.
Ake becomes City’s second summer signing following the £21m arrival of Valencia winger Ferran Torres,20, on Tuesday.
Ake joined Bournemouth in 2017 for a club record fee and made 121 appearances.
