According to picture Bayern Munich joined Chelsea and Manchester United in the race for Borussia Mönchengladbach's midfielder Denis Zakaria before the transfer window next summer.
The Swiss international has impressed since he switched from Young Boys to the Bundesliga in the summer of 2017, and the Premier League duo is delighted with him.
However, playing for the defending champions of the Champions League could be more attractive as it guarantees local cutlery.
Bayern are also the team to be beaten in Europe at the moment after starting their title defense last night with a 4-0 demolition of Atletico Madrid. Chelsea and Man Utd have a lot to do to convince Zakaria to join them.
The 23-year-old was also linked to Real Madrid and Liverpool earlier in the summer transfer window and he is definitely doing something right.
The Swiss star has two years left on his contract, and Gladbach is said to be able to withstand at least £ 45 million.
Chelsea could use more bite and steel in midfield after conceding just one goal and nine goals in five league games this season and Zakaria will be a great addition to the team.
You've spent a lot of money on quality signatures this summer and the buying frenzy could continue next year as manager Frank Lampard seeks to turn the blues into real title contenders.
Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is also under pressure to get his side shot at all cylinders and the challenge for silverware, as well as Tottenham Hotspur's 6-1 demolition before international break have brutally exposed his team's defensive weakness .
Zakaria has proven itself at Gladbach and constantly offers quality protection for its defense. Now it's time for him to move on to a bigger page.
While Bayern give him a chance to stay in Germany, he might like to play in the Premier League and both Chelsea and Man Utd are without a doubt very attractive options.
