According to a report from German outlet BILD, Manchester United could miss out on Borussia Mönchengladbach’s midfield maestro Denis Zakaria.
Manchester United have been monitoring Zakaria’s progression for a while now.
United are thought to be one of the many admirers for the modern midfielder, who can play both as a box-to-box or a defensive midfielder.
Manchester United Ole Gunnar Solskjaer added some much-needed squad depth in his creative department with the signing of Donny van de Beek from Ajax last summer.
However, the current situation denotes the fact that they won’t be the clear favourites in the race as their city rivals in Manchester City are going to launch a lucrative bid in an attempt to sign the Swiss international next summer.
Beside City and United, there have been interests from Spanish giants FC Barcelona, in particular.
Mönchengladbach might fancy keeping a firm hold on Zakaria next summer. But, in that case, they would have to let him leave for free in the summer of 2022.
