Sources close to Manchester City take firm stance on Nathan Ake’s future amid AC Milan interest

After a difficult first season at the Etihad Stadium due to a mix of playing time and injuries, Nathan Aké is enjoying a successful second season in Manchester City.

The Dutchman has recently become a key player in Pep Guardiola’s squad in the 2021/22 campaign, seen as an ideal option for both center-back and left-back of the Sky Blues.

However, a recent story reported that AC Milan had ‘evaluated’ the possibility of signing Nathan Aké in the ongoing January transfer window, as the Italian giants desperately seek defensive reinforcements in the days and weeks to come.

In a new update on the situation regarding the Manchester City star according to a report from Milan Live, the possible 26 years old ‘arrival’ to the Serie A giants is claimed to be ‘difficult to achieve’.

Within the same report, Milan Live states that according to sources close to the Premier League champions, Nathan Aké will not leave the club in the transfer window in January.

This is not the first time the Dutch star has been linked with a move away from Manchester City, with Premier League clubs such as West Ham and Newcastle United expressing interest in a possible change in January.

It should be mentioned that Manchester City compete on three distinct fronts this season and can consider themselves a favorite in every competition.

With the possibility of increasing Covid-19 cases and injuries due to the relentless stacking of matches, a player like Nathan Aké who can cover two positions with aplomb is worth his weight in gold.

While the Dutchman doesn’t always receive the praise he deserves, his presence as one of Manchester City‘s most versatile players makes him a vital cog if the club aspire to win multiple trophies this season.
