AS Monaco manager Adi Hütter has said that he would be happy to work with Denis Zakaria (26), with whom he worked at Borussia Mönchengladbach, amidst reports that the Swiss international’s move to Les Monégasques is imminent.
Fabrizio Romano reported on Friday that an agreement, thought to be worth around €20m, had been reached between the two clubs. The Juventus midfielder is therefore expected to complete his move to the Principality club soon.
“Of course [I would be happy]. We have been speaking about it for two or three weeks. I spoke with him yesterday and he would be very happy to come to AS Monaco. I’ve known him since 2015 when I arrived at Bern and he was 18. He was a really gifted, talented player. Then after two years he left for Borussia Mönchengladbach, and then I trained with him a second time there, and this would be a third time,” said Hütter during a pre-match press conference, attended by Get French Football News ahead of Monaco’s fixture against Clermont Foot.
