Denis Zakaria is out of contract at Borussia Mönchengladbach at the end of the season and has been linked with a move to Manchester United and few other clubs.

Earlier this month, we relayed claims from Germany, stating that Ralf Rangnick is a fan of the 25-year-old and the United interim manager has already held talks with his agent.

Last weekend, the Bundesliga side’s sporting director, Max Eberl, admitted the defensive midfielder could be sold in the winter market.

According to Sky Deutschland, Bayern Munich are now ‘fully involved’ in the ‘poker’ for the Switzerland international. The Bavarian club could see Corentin Tolisso leave when his contract with them expires in less than six months.

It’s claimed Julian Nagelsmann feels Zakaria’s addition would strengthen the Bayern squad and could replace Tolisso, if the Frenchman were to leave as a free agent.

Sky then mention about the Old Trafford club and state the former RB Leipzig manager had held ‘discussions’ with the Mönchengladbach player’s representatives.

Despite Rangnick’s talks with the agent, the report states Manchester United have since ‘cooled down’ their interest in Zakaria.

The Premier League side’s latest stance on the midfielder ‘should suit’ Bayern, preferably to take Zakaria on a free transfer next summer.
