Swiss international midfielder Denis Zakaria has joined Monaco from Juventus, the Ligue 1 club announced on Monday.
Monaco said the 26-year-old had signed a five-year contract.

Zakaria joined Juventus in January 2022 and made 11 appearances before going on loan to Chelsea the following September. He made seven Premier League appearances for the London club.
He will be playing under Adi Huetter for the third time.
“He’s a very talented player,”
“I met him at Young Boys Bern, where he arrived when he was 18. Then I met him again at Moenchengladbach.”
“He’d be a good recruit and his style would suit Monaco perfectly.”The Austrian coach said on Friday.
