Man City open Gladbach talks for Zakaria

Manchester City have opened talks with Borussia Monchengladbach for Denis Zakaria.

BILD says City are in contact with Gladbach and preparing to offer €40m for the Switzerland international.

In need for a long-term replacement for Fernandinho, City have identified Zakaria as a solution.

Zakaria has been out since March due to a knee injury, but returned to Gladbach training this week.

The midfielder has a contract to 2022 and his agents also held talks over the summer with Bayern Munich.
