The Manchester City will explain the next season with the services of Nathan Aké, a central Dutch of 25 years that until this campaign has played in the Bournemouth. The descent of said team has propiciado that the group trained by Pep Guardiola can launch his networks on the defender and can carry it after winning the bidding in front of the Manchester United.

This yes, in spite of that the Bournemouth saw forced to sell to Nathan Aké, his arrival to the Manchester City has not been precisely cheap. Until 45 million euros will have to disburse the runner-up of the Premier League to be able to do with his services. Something that, as if of an effect dominated treated , can affect to a FC Barcelona that is looking for to a player in the same demarcation.

The priority of the Barcelona club is repescar to Eric García, that also plays in the Manchester City but that still has not accepted the proposal of renewal of the English club because it poses go back to the FC Barcelona. Nevertheless, Pep Guardiola will tighten the nuts so that the promising central Catalan remain in the Etihad Stadium and, in case to achieve it, the Barcelona club would have a problem.

If the FC Barcelona does not achieve to do with Eric García, already was in 2021, when it finish his agreement, or in 2020, to price reduced by the pressure that will have the Manchester City to lose him free, the club culé will have to attend to the market to find a central contrasted. It is here where would affect the signing Nathan Aké by the 'cityzens', since these 45 million euros paid by him would put up the price of the market of the central.

Nathan Aké does not have a too brilliant path: it went through the Feyenoord, him fichó Chelsea and was yielded to Reading, Watford and Bournemouth, where remained definitively. In spite of not having too much experience in a big club, the Manchester City has paid a high quantity, something that will do that the signings of central defences contrasted go back to go up of price and that the FC Barcelona, in full financial crisis, can not allow a reinforcement in this so basic position.

Gerard Hammered is 33 years old, Samuel Umtiti has continuous physical problems and Ronald Araújo paints well but is a melon for opening. With Clément Lenglet like base, the FC Barcelona needs apuntalar the demarcation of head office with a player of level. But the effect dominated of the signing of Nathan Aké already has begun and, in case of not arriving Eric García, the culés could see without resources to assume a signing contrasted.
