Manchester United are considering a shock move for Manchester City defender Nathan Ake.
According to The Sun, United are keeping a close eye on Ake’s situation at City, as they draw up a hit list of centre back targets.
Real Madrid’s Rafa Varane and Pau Torres, of Villarreal, are high on it – but manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is also a big fan of Dutchman Ake.
And although he only signed for City in a £40 million move from Bournemouth 12 months ago, opportunities have been limited at the Etihad.
Ruben Dias and John Stones are the clear first choice pairing, with Aymeric Laporte also ahead of him, and Ake is growing frustrated at a lack of action.
Now much could rest on whether Laporte angles for a move after slipping from automatic choice a year earlier.
