Man Utd eyeing move for £40m-rated Bundesliga midfielder

By | December 4, 2020

Manchester City reportedly intend to join the race to secure services of Borussia Monchengladbach midfield star Denis Zakaria and ready to rivals Chelsea and Man Utd for his services.

The Switzerland international has continued to enhance his reputation this campaign, helping his team to compete with Inter Milan and Real Madrid in their Champions League group.

Chelsea and Man Utd have previously been rumoured with the 24-year-old, who is expected to make a move to a bigger team in the future.

However, according to Fabrizio Romano’s Here We Go podcast, the Citizens will prioritise a bid for the player during the next summer transfer window.

Speaking on the podcast, Romano said: “Manchester City are focusing on Zakaria. He is so appreciated by the board, they are following him, they are in contact with his agent. So he’s for sure on the list of Manchester City.”

Zakaria has just 19 months left on his current deal with Monchengladbach and Man Utd see him as a perfect replacement to Nemanja Matic who is likely to depart from Old Trafford this summer, while Chelsea are in the market for N’Golo Kante’s possible replacement as Frenchman continue to be rumoured with a switch to Real Madrid.
