It’s no secret that Manchester United are interested in Inter Milan’s right-back. But who isn’t? The reports in England suggested that Denzel Dumfries is a transfer target for Manchester United.

The Netherlands international was signed by Inter in August 2021 from PSV for a fee of 14.25 million euros. He has a contract until 2025 with the club.

He has banged in 2 goals and provided 3 assists in 20 matches for Inter Milan this term on all fronts.

The 26-year-old is considered to be one of the best right-backs in Netherlands. His record for Netherlands is also impressive. Dumfries has scored 6 goals in 42 matches for Netherlands at senior level.

His performances have seen him become the target of many European clubs including Manchester United.

Erik ten Hag sees Denzel Dumfries as the perfect addition to his defense. The report claims that United manager has extensively scouted Dumfries and is considering a move for the right-back.

The Netherlands international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of defensive player Ten Hag wants to target in the winter transfer window.

The Red Devils are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.

Denzel Dumfries is a skilled right-back who can make a difference at both ends of the pitch. His versatile nature can help the manager to be more flexible with the formations. The former PSV man has the quality and the experience to make an immediate impact.

According to the report, “Manchester United boss Erik ten Hag is determined to sign a new fullback in January. Sky Italia says the priority for Ten Hag is Inter Milan wing-back Denzel Dumfries. The Dutchman is in his second season with Inter after his arrival from PSV Eindhoven. Also under consideration are Bayer Leverkusen defender Jeremie Frimpong and Olympique Lyon youngster Malo Gusto. However, Dumfries is Ten Hag’s preferred choice. Any move for the Inter defender will see Aaron Wan-Bissaka allowed to leave United.”

Manchester United will have to present a really enticing offer to bring Inter to the negotiating table. They have the resources to tempt them but it will be interesting to see if they are willing to overpay for the player.

The Black and Blues are eager to keep the right-back beyond the current campaign, but the player may look to take the next step in his career.

Good signing for Manchester United?

If Manchester United and Ten Hag are seriously considering a right-back, Dumfries could also prove to be a smart option.

The 26-year-old Netherlands international could be a very good squad player for Erik ten Hag over the next few years. He is at the peak of his career right now and Ten Hag could bring out the best in him.

If Erik ten Hag sees him as the right man for his side, Manchester United should quickly make a move to fend off interest from other clubs.
