Wim Kieft has reservations about whether Nathan Ake’s move to Manchester City will be a success.

Ake is set to sign for Manchester City from Bournemouth in a move that will cost the Premier League giants around £40 million.

Writing in his column for De Telegraaf, Kieft is unsure whether Ake will be a success playing under Pep Guardiola.

He said, “It is cheeky on Guardiola’s side for him to take him. But Aké will also discover that it is a job to play there and that he will also have the biggest problems.

“He can play a nice ball and has eight years of experience in England. They will have bought him on his defensive qualities, although he is strongest when he plays around sixteen meters area and that happens less often at City. I sometimes find him a bit wild. “

Kieft is happy for Ake though, “It will be a concern if he is considered a reinforcement for the width positions. He signs and will earn a huge salary for five years and he will end up in a great team. “
