I personally think we warranted a chance at least, but the likelihood of Conte using 3-5-2 has increased with this decision.

I don't think it indicates anything. Ake could have still been used as a left CB. Similar to what Pep use to do with Alaba. Time will tell I guess.

Nice picture I found

Nathan Aké on playing LB in recent games - "It's a little different than CB or DM but if you get a chance as LB in Chelsea First Team you shouldn't whine" (via FOX) good attitude that.

Bow down to the almighty Egalitarian.

I think Conte prefers big defenders that are physically strong. Ake certainly doesn't fit that build.

But for cover, he could of had him there. I just think that Conte prob feels Ake is not ready to be his starting LB or back up for either positions so in that case best he goes on loan which is a shame.

Having him as back up would stall his development. I agree with the point that Conte might just think he isn't ready. I'm just surprised he's gone to Bournemouth instead of going to a better club (possibly with European football).

Eddie Howe has claimed that new signing Nathan Ake prefers being a central midfielder 2bh I think Ake better has a left back than central midfielder

Honestly, he's got a slight shot at making it here as a LB. None whatsoever in central midfield. 

I hope I'm wrong but he's basically saying he doesn't see his future here if he is insisting on playing in midfield.

Thought that was always the case. Never showed anything that made me thing he could hold down a place in the middle of the park.
