MANCHESTER – Manchester City are one step away from bringing Nathan Ake from Bournemouth. The arrival of the Dutchman was mentioned would open the exit for John Stones. The Citizens even ready to sell these British players at a discount.

The back line is indeed a serious concern for Man City. Because, the goal that was escorted by Ederson Moraes broke as many as 35 goals in the 2019-2020 English League. The fragility of the back line is the cause of the 2019-2020 English League title.

Injuries that alternately afflict personnel at the heart of the defense become the base of the problem. John Stones and Aymeric Laporte had to be absent for months due to injuries. Not to mention, Man City’s central defender stock is very thin.

Therefore, Man City is aiming for a number of names in the summer transfer market to be recruited. However, Kalidou Koulibaly from Naples will not close as rumored, but Nathan Ake.

With the arrival of the 25-year-old player, the competition will be tighter. Reporting from The SunOn Friday (7/31/2020), John Stones was potentially sacrificed to make room for Nathan Ake in Man City.

A number of clubs are reportedly already interested in using the services of the former Everton player. Besides The Toffees, Arsenal and West Ham, are monitoring the situation of John Stones. Because, Manchester Blue is ready to cut the selling price to 20 million pounds (equivalent to Rp380 billion).

A series of injuries and a decline in performance made Man City want to sell John Stones. In fact, the 26-year-old player was recruited with a high enough price in 2016 from Everton, which is 47.5 million pounds (equivalent to Rp903.4 billion).

At that time, Man City was very determined to bring in John Stones. Because, Pep Guardiola was devastated by the ability of the Barnsley-born player in defense while starting an attack from behind. He was considered suitable with the tactics used by the Spanish manager.

Price discounts were willingly provided by Man City to speed up the sale process of John Stones. Moreover, the contract only has two years left at Etihad. If he insisted on surviving, it is not impossible that Stones could only become bench warmers.

John Stones statistics are actually not very bad in the 2019-2020 English League. Performed 16 times, he was able to record a successful tackle ratio of 63% from 16 occasions. Not to mention, Stones did 31 strokes and nine intercepts.
