Midfielder sends OFFICIAL message to Chelsea after completing very late Stamford Bridge move

Denis Zakaria has sent a message to the Chelsea fans after officially completing his summer move to Stamford Bridge

It is no secret that Thomas Tuchel has not got the players that he would have liked this summer – despite the fact the club have spent £250 million on players

But as Tuchel seeks to add some more depth to the squad – they made the big decision to open talks with Juventus about a deal for Zakaria on deadline day – and after a few hours of talking – they reached an agreement

The Blues announced on the club website:

“Swiss international Denis Zakaria has joined Chelsea on loan from Juventus for the remainder of the 2022/23 campaign, with an option of a permanent transfer at the end of the season.

“The 25-year-old is a strong and energetic midfielder who is robust in the tackle and a fine passer of the ball. Zakaria rose to prominence in the Bundesliga with Borussia Monchengladbach, where he was most often deployed in a defensive midfield role.

“He can also play further forward or in the centre of defence.”

On switching to Stamford Bridge, Zakaria said: ‘I want to say hi to all the Chelsea fans. I’m very happy and proud to be a Blue and I cannot wait to see you soon at Stamford Bridge.’

Chelsea chairman Todd Boehly said: ‘Denis is a talented midfielder with lots of quality and skill. He will add depth and range to our squad this season, and we are looking forward to watching him play in Chelsea blue.’

Behdad Eghbali and José E. Feliciano, co-controlling owners, added: ‘Denis brings top-level and international experience, and his mix of tenacity and great distribution will be assets to our team. We’re happy to have him with us and welcome him to London.’
