Midfielder Denis Zakaria is being one of the buzzwords in European football. The Swiss turns 25 in a month and ends his contract in June 2022 with Monchengladbach, which has made several large clubs interested in incorporating it. Roma and Arsenal were the first to come to the fore during the last summer transfer market, but in the last hours a ‘transatlantic’ with which it will be very difficult to compete has joined. As reported by the British media Manchester Evening News, Manchester City would like the Swiss footballer as a replacement for Fernandinho, who will be 37 years old in May and will also finish his contract next year.
Zakaria arrived at Gladbach in 2017 in exchange for 12 million euros, and since then its value has doubled to 27 million, according to the portal Transfermarkt. Another of those who has been related to the player, who has decided not to extend his contract with the German team, is FC Barcelona. The culé team is exploring the market of players who end a contract due to their economic situation, and as reported days ago by the newspaper SportHe would have the Swiss on his agenda. Although the list of names of names polled by Barça is extensive, in which there are footballers such as Franck Kessié, Tanguy Ndomdélé and Renato Sanches, that of Zakaria would be the most economical option and that best adjusts to the Blaugrana transfer policy .
