Denzel Dumfries news

Man Utd and Chelsea want Dumfries

Manchester United and Chelsea could battle it out for the signature of Denzel Dumfries at the end of the campaign.

The Dutchman was heavily linked with a Premier League move last summer, but a transfer did not materialise in the end.

This has not stopped the transfer speculation and Gazzetta dello Sport claim that he could leave Inter over the summer.

The Serie A giants need to balance their books by June 30 and they need to make a couple of big-money sales by then.

Dumfries is one of the players that could fetch them plenty. The club are looking for around €60m to sanction his exit.

Chelsea are said to be favourites to sign the former PSV captain, but it is claimed that United could offer good competition.

Erik ten Hag has identified Dumfries as his top defensive target and he is keen on luring him to Old Trafford at all costs.

The Dutch tactician could guarantee the 26-year-old with a regular starting role ahead of Diogo Dalot at right-back if he were to join.
