Nathan Ake has told Bournemouth fans not to worry about speculation linking him with a move to Manchester United.
The Red Devils, along with Ake’s old club Chelsea, have been strongly linked with a swoop for the Dutch defender who has enjoyed an impressive start to the campaign.
But Ake said: “I am enjoying my time at Bournemouth. It is so good.
“I am playing, the manager is helping me a lot and the fans are good as well. They are always behind us so no, don’t be worried.
“It is speculation. It is papers. If something is true it is praise that you are doing something right but just keep doing the same, trying to play well for Bournemouth and see what happens.”
