According to reports, the representative of Inter Milan defender Denzel Dumfries travelled to England to meet with several Premier League teams including Manchester United. Only 18 months have passed since the right-sided defender, who joined San Siro from another club, was signed by the Italian powerhouses.
The international player for the Netherlands has made 68 appearances and contributed seven goals and 10 assists. While the Dutchman’s best performance coming in 2021–2022 has now made hime one of the hot properties to opt for.
Dumfries is still very much on the radar of English clubs even though he didn’t match his figures from that campaign this time around. This continued interest is partially due to the possibility that Inter will need to make a significant sell before the January transfer window closes.
Dumfries to make a move to Man United this January?
Although Milan Skriniar leaving for another big European club is a possibility, head coach Simone Inzaghi’s recent decision to bench Dumfries makes them a more plausible choice.
Calciomercato reports that his agent Rafaela Pimenta has made an effort to complete Dumfries’s move to England. Thus, he has set up meetings with a number of Premier League teams, including Manchester United.
Aaron Wan-Bissaka’s replacement has long been mentioned in connection with the Red Devils, but the present right-back has excelled since the season resumed.
But given the uncertainty surrounding his long-term future at Old Trafford, United may want to consider their other choices, especially if Dumfries were to go on the market.
The 26-year-old has also been linked with a move to Chelsea, and if the West Londoners are unsuccessful in convincing Lyon to sell Malo Gusto, they might make a bid for Dumfries.
Although the former PSV Eindhoven player still has two and a half years left on his Inter deal, this is unlikely to prevent a transfer.
I Nerazzurri are said to be prepared to seek around €40 million (£35.17 million), which is more than twice what they gave his last employers in 2021.
Club executives are eager to improve Inter’s reputation with FFP this year, which would be greatly boosted by a successful sale.
