Denis Zakaria has been long term target of Ole Gunnar Solskjær as the manager look to bolster his midfield options for the next season.

The 23-year-old can play multiple positions in midfield.

According to the report, “Manchester United are stepping up their interest in Borussia Monchengladbach midfielder Denis Zakaria. Sky Deutschland says United are leading the race to snap up Zakaria. The Red Devils could allow fellow anchor man Nemanja Matic to leave in the summer once his contract expires, with Paul Pogba also linked to an exit. But Zakaria, who signed for the Germans in 2017, has insisted that he will pay no attention to his future until the summer. The 6ft 2ins defensive midfielder can also play in central defence and has been rated at around £43million.”


Borussia would be wise to keep the Switzerland international, but if they do let him go expect it to be for a hefty sum.

Signing the 23-year-old would be a masterstroke from Solskjær.

Manchester United fans would certainly love to see him arrive at the club.

It will be interesting to see whether Manchester United will make their move during the summer transfer window.
