Loads of Chelsea fans have been reacting to Nathan Ake’s performance against Manchester United, and they can’t believe they let the youngster go.
Manchester United beat Bournemouth 2-1 on Saturday courtesy of a late winner from Marcus Rashford, but former Chelsea man Ake showed exactly why Bournemouth paid £20m for him.
The 23 year-old can use his speed and excellent reading of the game to play anywhere across the back four, and has really found his feet alongside Steve Cook in the heart of Eddie Howe’s defence.
He was at his very best against Jose Mourinho’s Red Devils on Saturday, and Chelsea fans can’t believe Antonio Conte dumped him and kept Gary Cahill instead.
The young defender completed 88 per cent of his passes, won two aerial duels and two tackles.
He also made one interception, eight clearances and one incredible goal line block.
It seems like only a matter of time before one of the “big six” come calling for his services, and Chelsea fans are hoping it’s them.

Deprive Cahill of food and bring back Ake

Rudiger, Christensen, Ampadu, Zouma and Ake as long term centreback options? I think selling Luiz and Cahill, keeping those 4 and bringing back Ake could be a good decision.
