Man Utd set to do battle with Liverpool & Arsenal over 22y/o midfielder

Man United are trying to cast their net far and wide in order to bring in the best talent possible to Old Trafford. Arsenal and Liverpool stand in their way of the highly-rated Denis Zakaria.

Borussia M.Gladbach defensive midfielder has caught the eye of many of the top clubs from around Europe and the Premier League. However Man United see to be keen on getting a deal wrapped up ahead of the competition as soon as possible.

At 22-years-old, Zakaria as 13 games under his belt this season in all competitions, scoring twice. The Swiss international has a pass success rate of 84.4% and an average game rating of 7.15. He’s not afraid to take a pop from range and is prone to dribble himself out of trouble.

Man United desperately needs to recruit in the midfield area. A defensive midfielder like Zakaria would be the perfect partner for Pogba, should he remain at Old Trafford, to express his skills further up the field.

According to the inside futbol, M.Gladbach are prepared to accept 50m for the player. Which is double what Transfermarkt value him at (25.20m). Either way, it’s a snip in today’s market should he live up to the hype. However, he could end up being a Fred.

With the likes of Bayern Munich, Tottenham, Borussia Dortmund, Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid all being linked to the midfielder. Man United needs to act swiftly if they are to stand a chance.
