Man City willing to sell Chelsea target Ake only if...

Manchester City won't sell Nathan Ake until they have a replacement signed.

The Telegraph says City will not consider letting Ake go this summer without having a replacement lined up.

Ake is the latest player to be targeted by Chelsea as new owner Todd Boehly looks to get them challenging for the Premier League title again. The West London club are in negotiations with City over a price for Raheem Sterling with the forward having been tempted by Thomas Tuchel's plans for him.

Chelsea are confident of bringing Ake back to Stamford Bridge — where he came through as a professional before leaving to join Bournemouth permanently.

They are in need of central defenders after seeing Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen leave on free transfers this summer.
