Manchester United will reportedly intensify their interest in Inter Milan defender Denzel Dumfries next week, a player both Newcastle United and Tottenham are also in the race to sign this summer.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, the Nerazzurri are open to selling their star fullback as Inter look to make one major sale this summer, with Erik Ten Hag’s side now in the running to make an offer for the Netherlands’ international as soon as next week if United can offload their own right-back in Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

As per the report, Inter could sell Dumfries for as little as €40m (£34m), a relative bargain considering how impressive the defender has been since moving to Italy from PSV Eindhoven last summer, with Antonio Conte’s Tottenham and Newcastle both reportedly interested in the right-back.

With Ten Hag’s first two signings as United both being from the Eredivisie, it would make sense why the Dutch manager would take a liking to Dumfries, who is the Netherlands’ starting right-back and was last summer arguably one of the best and most exciting fullbacks at Euro 2020.

And Dumfries has excelled since moving to Inter, with the 26-year-old a regular for Simone Inzaghi’s side last season and once again attracting Premier League interest, something United could now follow through with next week if they launch an offer to sign the fullback.

Indeed, Dumfries could be the perfect Wan-Bissaka replacement for United, and with Tottenham already signing Djed Spence and Newcastle somewhat stalling in the market, the Red Devils could consider themselves favourites for the Dutch superstar in the coming weeks.

United have made two smart moves this summer already under Ten Hag, and the former Ajax boss can make it a hat-trick of good signings if the Dutchman can beat Newcastle and Tottenham to Dumfries, who would be a welcome addition to the Old Trafford side.

After all, United are desperate for a dynamic right-back who both attack and defend in the modern game, and Dumfries fits the bill perfectly as a replacement for Wan-Bissaka, especially with the English fullback reportedly linked with a return back to Crystal Palace.
