Manchester United can sign Denzel Dumfries from Inter Milan for €40 million in the summer, or €50 million in the January transfer window.
That’s according to a report from Gazzetta dello Sport who claim that United have already held talks to sign the 26-year-old Inter right-back.
Erik ten Hag clearly wants to sign a top-class right-back to provide proper competition and cover for Diogo Dalot at Old Trafford.
And Dumfries would certainly be a huge upgrade on Aaron Wan-Bissaka in my opinion…
Manchester United can sign Denzel Dumfries in January
GDS claim that if Ten Hag wants to bring his fellow Dutchman to Old Trafford this summer, he needs to pay €50 million (£44 million) to make it happen.
Or, should the United boss be willing to wait until the summer, it will cost him around €40 million (£35 million) to sign Dumfries. I think that Ten Hag should pull the trigger on this deal now – €50 million for Dumfries is actually a good deal in my book.
The 42-capped Holland international is incredibly powerful, and has plenty of effortless pace with energy and stamina in abundance. With his powerful build and robust nature, he should be ideally suited to the physicality of the Premier League as well.He proved during the World Cup out in Qatar just how effective he can be in big games, at both ends of the pitch. In fact, talkSPORT suggested that he set FIFA’s showpiece tournament alight.
The Dutchman has bagged seven goals and 10 assists in 68 games for Inter Milan – mightily impressive numbers for a right-back. He is a truly elite player in my opinion. And if Manchester United can sign Denzel Dumfries for €50 million in the January transfer window, they should not hesitate to make it happen.
