Man United and Chelsea in race to sign Dumfries

Man United and Chelsea are in the race to sign Denzel Dumfries from Inter. The Nerazzurri defender has been attracting interest from top clubs after an impressive World Cup. Inter Milan are willing to sell him, and are encouraging the bidding war as this will increase his transfer value. Inter have to generate profit this season to balance their finances, and Dumfries could go for a good amount.

Chelsea want a right wing-back as Reece James is working to get back to his peak fitness levels. The English defender has recovered from a serious injury, but Chelsea will need another option to help in the rotation. Azpilicueta is no longer the player he used to be, and the Blues have to freshen up their options in right-flank. Dumfries will suit their style of play as they keep their wing-backs high and wide. Also, they have been struggling to score goals, and Dumfries will add a new angle in attack, as he is exceptional in the air.

Manchester United are dependent on Dalot at the right-back position as he fits in Ten Hag’s style of play. The Dutch manager does not like Wan Bissaka, who might leave in January. Dumfries is a viable option as the Inter Milan defender is one of the best modern-day full-backs. He is quick, offensive, and has the physicality to win duels and stop the transition. Moreover, Ten Hag knows him well from his time in the Eredivisie, where Dumfries was the captain of PSV Eindhoven.

Dumfries might be more inclined to join Man United, because of the Dutch manager Erik Ten Hag. However, Chelsea are building a good project under Graham Potter. Also, he is one of the best managers in the league and is infusing an attractive style of play at Stamford bridge.
