Man United & Chelsea latest Premier League sides credited with interest in Denis Zakaria

Zakaria’s Gladbach stint

Denis 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 24-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.

Chelsea & Man United linked with Zakaria

The 24-year-old’s fine form, meanwhile, has piqued the interest of some of Europe’s biggest clubs over recent months.

Manchester City have been heavily linked with the midfielder, with a recent report from Fabrizio Romano having revealed that the Citizens are ‘focusing on’ Zakaria:

Now, on Tuesday, two of the Premier League’s other heavyweights have also been credited with an interest in the defensive midfielder.

The sides in question, according to the Daily Star, are Manchester United and Chelsea (though City’s interest is also highlighted).

It is suggested that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is on the lookout for a Nemanja Matic replacement, with Chelsea said to have been eyeing up reinforcements at the base of their midfield for some time now.
