Gladbach director would love to bring Denis Zakaria back to

Last January, Juventus snatched the signing of Denis Zakaria just before the transfer session ended.

While the Swiss midfielder reportedly had the right profile to bolster Max Allegri’s side, he only lasted six months in Turin before hitting the road again.

In the closing hours of the summer transfer window deadline, the 25-year-old completed a loan transfer to Chelsea with an option to buy.

Zakaria has been on the sidelines at Stamford Bridge following the sacking of Thomas Tuchel, the manager who initially wanted him in west London.

Graham Potter finally gave him his Chelsea debut last Wednesday and despite scoring a goal against Dinamo Zagreb, the Blues are likely to cut his loan spell short before January, as we reported yesterday.

However, his former club Borussia Mönchengladbach could offer an escape route for both the Bianconeri and the player.

The German club’s CEO Roland Virkus admits his team would love to have Zakaria back.

“Obviously we would like to have Zakaria here again. A player like him, who can fix a lot of situations with his speed, would always help”, the director was quoted as saying by Calciomercato.

Zakaria played for Gladbach for four and a half years between 2017 and 2022, before taking a well-deserved step forward in his career and joining the Old Lady.
