With the midfielders contract set to expire in 2022, the German side are keen to offload him at the end of this season so they can acquire an ‘adequate fee’. Pep Guardiola has been a long-term admirer and it’ll be no surprise if he makes him a target this summer.
Sport Witness even say the Blues could try to tempt Zakaria to the club in January, after reports they had already had talks in the summer just gone. Since David Silva’s departure from the club, City have struggled to find a suitable replacement in the mifield.
Despite the player denying any talks earlier in the season, Fussball Transfers do say he is ‘busy for a move’ to happen and City may be top of that list.
