Manchester United ‘courting’ Mönchengladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria

Manchester United are ‘courting’ Borussia Mönchengladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria, according to German news outlet SportsBild (via Sport Witness).

Last week, Sky Germany claimed United ‘show great interest’ in the Swiss-Congo following his impressive displays in the Bundesliga this season.

Liverpool and Bayern Munich have also been linked to the 23-year-old, but the defensive midfielder could ‘easily’ stay at Borussia Park if Mönchengladbach maintain 4th place and qualify for the Champions League.

Ole Gunnar Solskjær is reportedly highly interested in adding a top-quality midfielder to his squad this summer and Zakaria is one on the shortlist.

This term in the German top-flight, Zakaria boasts a 7.15 average rating according to WhoScored and has an 86.7% average pass accuracy while making 2.1 tackles per game for The Foals.

Having arrived from Young Boys in 2017, the 6ft 3″ man has made 28 appearances for Switzerland, including two at the 2018 World Cup.

He is currently sidelined with a hamstring injury during this suspended period and valued at £40.5m by Transfermarkt.
