Makes loads of sense, he would of been benched for the majority of the season because if we fetch in VvD or Manolas they will be ahead of him as will Sandro and Alonso for LB role.

Everyone wins here.

Don't know what direction the club are going with this sale:dunno:

AFC Bournemouth complete club-record signing from Chelsea

https://weaintgotnohistory.sbnation.com/chelsea-fc-transfer-rumours-news/2017/6/30/15888484/chelsea-nathan-ake-sold-bournemouth-official

The direction is the road we've always been on and always will be on - quality over sentiment; it's the reason we've been above Arsenal/Liverpool/Tottenham all these years, just like Man City & Barcelona, who too haven't integrated youth in 5+ years.

Imagine we kept him only for him to see 5 appearances vs. the 30+ he'll now see next season. Our own fans would slander the club to death, over this guy. 

The hierarchy can't win either way; but this time, they don't deserve any heat, at all. Incredible profit for a player who has no outstanding qualities.

Even Juventus sell their very best youth products every single season, inserting buy-back clauses.

I agree. For too long those exact players, & others, have seemingly stuck around solely because they're nice guys. Maybe it's something about their perceived locker room 'presence'. We as a club definitely seem uncomfortable when it comes to letting players go unless they've been absolutely horrid for a long stretch. If you're 'average', but already been here for a few years, you'll probably be here for a few more. Unlike at Madrid/Munich/Juventus.

He is a great lad and has a big potential, imo, he is ahead of the likes of Chalobah, RLC or Baker, even maybe from all of our academy players. For his age he is showing great composure on the pitch and will probably be a vital part of B'mouth team. Shame that we couldn't find place in the team for our best academy player, but personally going away from Chelsea is the best option for him, hope he can win a role in the Netherlands national team, wish him all the best.

Is there anywhere reported officially that there is a buy-back clause included in the deal? Because I wasn't able to find anything mentioned about it in the statements from both of the clubs.

Another one bites the dust. We're getting rid of players that could actually contribute while others are still on the books.

Disappointed to see him get sold, but at least we seemingly have a buy-back option.

Sad to see him go but glad he will be able to showcase his talents and grow them at Bournemouth.

Wish him all the success.

Says there is a buy back clause in Traore deal, in France there is no such thing as a buy back clause. So i am not sure this article could be trusted regarding both.

It is likely an agreement in principle between the clubs.

United have a buy back clause on Depay too.

From hat I read Conte anted to keep him but the boar over ruled him.I think we could have done good things ith him. Just think we brought him back from loan too soon. Maybe the club got greedy seeing the £20mill offer. And Ake himself wanting reular games.Hes getting that at least.
