Jamie Carragher is unsure how Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola
will get Nathan Ake in his starting line-up next season after having a bid
accepted for the centre-back.

Reports emerged on Thursday that Bournemouth had accepted a
£41 million bid for the Dutchman from City after the club were relegated from
the Premier League over the weekend.

The likes of Chelsea, Arsenal and Leicester City have all
been linked with Ake, while Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer fuelled rumours
that he could be heading to Old Trafford at the beginning of July.

But it now looks like Ake will be on his way to Man City and
Carragher thinks he will “suit” the Citizens but is unsure who he will replace
in the starting line-up.

“I like Nathan Ake and I think he will suit Man City,” Carragher wrote on Twitter. “But with Laporte a guaranteed starter I’m not
convinced two left-footed centre-backs works?

“I know right-footed players play together but it never
feels right the other way round to me! Left back or a back three?”

When put to him that they would need cover for Laporte on
the left-hand side, Carragher added: “Is Laporte injury prone or he just had a
bad injury? There is a difference.

“If Laporte is fit he plays! I just think it’s interesting
to see how Pep gets Ake into the team when Laporte is fit!”
