Man City ‘focusing on’ Borussia Monchengladbach’s Dennis Zakaria

Man City ‘focusing on’ Borussia Monchengladbach’s Dennis Zakaria

Zakaria’s Gladbach stint

Dennis Zakaria joined Borussia Monchengladbach in the summer of 2017.

The Swiss midfielder left Young Boys for a fee believed to be around £10m.

Zakaria has since gone on to firmly establish himself as a key cog at the base of Gladbach’s midfield.

The 23-year-old, prior to a knee injury, notched 31 outings for Monchengladbach last term, playing a central role in the German outfit securing a Champions League berth.

And though the same injury also saw him miss the start of the current campaign, Zakaria has slowly begun to regain fitness over recent weeks.

Man City eyeing Zakaria

The 28-time capped international’s fine form, meanwhile, now appears to have caught the eye of one of Europe’s elite.

The outfit in question are Manchester City, who were previously credited with an interest in Zakaria earlier this month.

And, speaking on the latest edition of his Here We Go podcast this week, the reliable Fabrizio Romano provided an update on the Citizens’ pursuit of the midfielder.

Romano confirms that City have already been in contact with Zakaria’s agent, though it is added that negotiations with Monchengladbach are yet to get underway:

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, there is nothing advanced yet because they are not negotiating yet with Borussia Monchengladbach, they need time.
