Chelsea: Potter ‘doesn’t trust’ £51k-a-week Tuchel signing at Stamford Bridge
Chelsea manager Graham Potter doesn’t trust summer signing Denis Zakaria, according to journalist Simon Phillips.
The £51,000 per-week star made the switch to Stamford Bridge on deadline day, but he’s still waiting to make his first appearance for the Blues.
What’s the latest news involving Zakaria?
Following the departures of Billy Gilmour and Ross Barkley, ex-manager Thomas Tuchel opted to bolster his midfield department with the loan signing of the Juventus star.
Zakaria struggled for regular game-time following his January switch to Serie A, but his frustrations have simply continued since his arrival in the Premier League.

He missed out on making his debut in the first couple of weeks due to fitness problems and was only named on the bench in a league game for the first time at Aston Villa last weekend.
But Zakaria was overlooked by Potter at Villa Park and then again at Brentford and has now been an unused substitute in six games.
