Zakaria at Chelsea before a quick end?

Things have not been going well for Denis Zakaria since he left Borussia Mönchengladbach. On Deadline Day he was loaned out by Juventus Turin to Chelsea FC, and now he is also on the sidelines with the Blues. His loan could come to an end prematurely.

Denis Zakaria left Borussia Mönchengladbach for around nine million euros at the beginning of the year. Before his contract expired the following summer and he would have switched on a free transfer, they accepted the premature departure and preferred to take the transfer fee with them.

But his move to Juventus didn't pay off. Already in the summer, after only getting nine appearances in the second half of the season (six out of the starting XI), he was awarded. With Chelsea, another well-known prospect showed up. But here, too, the record so far is sobering: he has not played in the Champions League and under Tuchel's successor Graham Potter he is no longer in the squad.

Accordingly, it seems unlikely that the Blues will pull the purchase option of 28 million euros. On the contrary: it is much more likely that the loan will be canceled - in the interests of everyone involved.

Transfer reporter Fabrizio Romano also speaks of an scheduled meeting between club and player. The aim is to talk about the current situation, with which no one can undoubtedly be satisfied. Chelsea pay the salary for a player who doesn't play a role, while Zakaria hasn't played regularly for around nine months.

It is therefore speculated that the 25-year-old will leave again in the winter. It would be the resolution of a misunderstanding that everyone imagined differently.

It is still unclear whether he will be reintegrated into Turin in this case, or whether a new loan target will be sought. There is still too much speculation about his Chelsea future for more concrete thoughts to be given.
