Calciomercato reports that Manchester United are one of the main contenders to sign Inter Milan defender Denzel Dumfries. The Red Devils are looking to bolster multiple positions as along with a midfielder, a side back is also a priority for the club.
The present options in the right-back, Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka are not proper creative outlets going forward. Both the right back options failed to score a goal or register an assist in the recently concluded campaign. Also, reports are claiming that, Wan-Bissaka will exit through the doors of Old Trafford after an utterly disappointing campaign. Hence the club will pursue a new face in that position, likely to be the Dutchman, Denzel Dumfries.
On the other hand, Dumfries also had a solitary season for Inter Milan. Amidst this, Calciomercato confirmed that Man United are leading the race to pursue the departing Nerazzuri full back. The Serie A outfit needs to comply with the Financial Fair Play (FFP) regulations and to steer clear from the blacklist they need to sell some of their players. Also, they are more inclined to sell Dumfries over Alessandro Bastoni who is linked with another Premier League club Tottenham.
Apart from Manchester United, Bayern Munich has also registered interest in acquiring the speedy right back. Although, very recently they signed Noussair Mazraoui on a free transfer from Ajax Amsterdam.
Will Dumfries be a good signing for Manchester United?
Man United started just fine under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last season. The England international was pretty solid defensively but lacked the attacking threat required in modern day football. Later under Ralf Rangnick, Diogo Dalot became the regular starter but still failed to register any assist or goal to his name even though he made progressive passes.
New boss Ten Hag decided to keep Dalot but wants a serious upgrade over him and Dumfries can be the perfect player. He scored 5 goals and 7 assists for Inter last season. Man United may need to spend around €35 million to lure him to the Old Trafford.
