Man United monitoring situation of Man City defender

According to recent reports, Manchester United are intrigued by the situation surrounding Manchester City’s Nathan Ake.

Ake, 26, joined City last summer following a £40.7m move from Bournemouth.

Although opting to team up with Pep Guardiola, there was earlier speculation that the Dutch defender may have emerged as a transfer target for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

During the latter parts of the 2019-20 season, while Ake was still at Bournemouth, Solskjaer was spotted on camera informing the defender that the Red Devils are on the lookout for a left-footed centre-back.

However, seemingly failing to follow their interest up with an official offer, Ake inevitably ended up moving elsewhere.

Since his arrival at the Etihad, things haven’t exactly gone to plan – having featured in just 13 matches, the 26-year-old now appears way down Guardiola’s pecking order.

Shockingly though, according to a recent report from the Sun, Solskjaer continues to remain interested in the defender and have added him to their defensive shortlist.
