Manchester United requires significant reinforcements, and it is perplexing that they have yet to add a crucial player during the January transfer window.
The Red Devils have been widely associated with Switzerland superstar, and the newest rumours claim that they have pushed in with a bid to sign him before the deadline.
The Mirror stated a week ago that the Old Trafford club had monitored the Borussia Monchengladbach playmaker, and that the £25 million man may be the club’s most likely new acquisition this winter.
Because his current contract with the German club expires in June, the Premier League heavyweights may be able to agree on a pre-contract with the player this month. They, on the other hand, are not in the mood to wait.
According to an update supplied today by Spanish outlet Fichajes, Manchester United have made a ten-million-euro bid to sign Zakaria during the current transfer window. According to reports, they may face a counter-offer from Liverpool, which is also interested in the Bundesliga star.
The 40-cap international turned 25 in November, so he is in his prime years, and if United can entice him for just 10 million euros, it will be a steal.
Interim coach, Ralf Rangnick, is trying to implement his pressing style of play but for that, the German manager needs a specialist play-breaker. With Matic past his best, there is no natural defensive midfielder to win the ball in the center of the park.
Therefore, Man Utd must press hard to sign Denis Zakaria. We shall see how the transfer saga unfolds in the coming days.
