FC Barcelona is tracking the market in search of players who can give that extra quality that it needs, especially in the center of the field and would have set its eyes on one of the great 'bargains' on the market.

The Catalans have been following the evolutions of Denis Zakaria for months, a footballer who is leaving a great performance with Borussia Monchengladbach and who ends his contract just at the end of this season, so he is a player to take into account.

The problem is that the Catalan team is not alone in the race for the footballer since according to the 'Manchester Evening News', Manchester City would be very interested in laying the glove on this very interesting player. The citizens consider that Zakaria would be a great relief for Fernandinho who is 36 years old and it is already his last season at the Etihad Stadium since he is not going to renew any longer. For a couple of seasons the English club has been looking for a new containment midfielder and it seems that Zakaria is the best opportunity given that he has all the qualities that Guardiola wants and also, he would arrive totally free.
