Written by Wilber Hack and Kasper Hermans for De Telegraaf:

Pep Guardiola has a few players of whom he is most proud, because they have developed beyond expectations. Nathan Ake is one of them. Chelsea must regret selling Aké to Bournemouth in 2017. At 1.80m, he was said to be too small for central defence, but his great timing means he wins headers against taller strikers. Aké moved to Chelsea at 16, was loaned out several times and eventually left. When Bournemouth were relegated in 2020, he joined Manchester City and Guardiola, “who immediately gave me a warm feeling,” Aké said. “The conversation was first about family and about life. His attacking way of playing suits me.” A few minutes after his first Champions League goal for City, Aké’s father died. He said of the goal: “This one was for you, Dad. You will always be in my heart.” Bayern Munich and PSG have shown an interest in signing Aké this year.
