Man Utd “tracks” Denis Zakaria before potential January bids


Manchester United have been named to clubs that “track” Borussia Mönchengladbach and Swiss midfielder Denis Zakaria ahead of a potential offer in January.

The midfield continues to be an area of ​​particular weakness for United, with Wolves star Joao Moutinho firmly emphasizing it when he pointed out after Monday night’s 1-0 loss that the visitors could “control everything” at Old Trafford.

United have already been linked with RB Leipzig star Amadou Haidara, but Zakaria has also emerged as a potential target to provide an immediate boost in the second half of the season.

Zakaria has established itself as a top player with Gladbach since 2017 and has been to three major international tournaments with Switzerland.

The 25-year-old has already decided that he will leave Gladbach. He is without a contract at the end of the season and would be available as a free agent, after rejecting the club’s efforts to secure a new contract. As such, he is already entitled to negotiate an agreement that will enter into force during the summer, but United have been advised to consider a move earlier than that.

The Daily Mirror notes that United are keeping an eye on Zakaria, who is estimated at £ 25m, and could pay a transfer fee this month to ensure they land him ahead of rumored Liverpool, Bayern Munich, Barcelona, ​​Juventus and Borussia Dortmund. all be interested.

90min has previously revealed Arsenal’s long-term interest in the Swiss player, while Everton and Leicester have also touched base with his representatives recently.

Zakaria’s camp has so far offered his services around Europe to create some hype and smoke out potential suitors. As a result of these efforts, he is expected to have a number of offers to consider this month as he weighs up his next move.

A sale this month has the advantage for Gladbach of getting a transfer fee, instead of seeing a valuable asset go away for nothing in a few months. The Bundesliga team will also lose central defender Matthias Ginter in a similar way as he is another who is not prepared to sign a new contract after this season.
