As a result of the speculation that Aaron Wan-Bissaka is no longer necessary for the Red Devils’ defense, it is claimed that the club is seeking for a new right defender. It has come to the attention of the Red Devils that Erik ten Hag, who plays for Dumfries, could be an alternate option.
According to a story that was published on the Italian website CalcioMercatoWeb, both Manchester United and Chelsea are interested in luring Dumfries away from the San Siro stadium in Milan.
The two Premier League clubs already have respectable options in Reece James and Diogo Dalot, therefore Inter are reportedly going to demand a transfer fee of roughly €50 million for the Dutch star. This amount may prove to be a little too costly for the two Premier League clubs.
The fact that the fullback still has two years left on his current contract with the Italian club gives Inter a stronger negotiating position because the team won’t be in a rush to offload him because he still has two years left on his contract.
Despite the fact that Fabrizio Romano has said that Manchester United are interested in the player, he admits that it is highly unlikely that the team will spend such an absurd sum of money on a right-back. He said the following to GIVEMESPORT:
Sincerity be damned, I don’t see them shelling out a crazy sum of money for that post.
Therefore, when I notice links to Denzel Dumfries, it’s true that they are interested in the player. However, I believe it will be very challenging for them to sign Dumfries in January, especially given their limited funds due to the Glazer problem and the fact that they need a striker. It’s true that they are interested in signing Denzel Dumfries, but I believe it will be quite challenging for them to do so.
I don’t think the Man United club will have the chance to pursue the Dumfries deal in January as a result.
Dumfries has made a name for himself as one of the top offensive right-backs in the league while playing with Inter. In 65 games across all leagues, he has contributed seven goals and 10 assists.
Additionally, he had an outstanding World Cup, with the game in which the Netherlands defeated the United States 3-1—in which he scored one goal and provided an assist on another—standing out.
