Denzel Dumfries’ Inter Milan exit is now a ‘certainty’ with the Nerazzurri needing to raise cash over the next few months, according to reports from Italy. Chelsea and Manchester United have both kept tabs on the Dutchman, who has sparkled at the Qatar World Cup, but it’s the Blues who appear to have stolen a march ahead of the January transfer window.
A series of impressive World Cup displays have left Inter with an appreciating asset on their hands, which is convenient timing due to their financial situation. Manager Simone Inzaghi supposedly needs to auction off over £50million worth of talent by June next year, and selling Dumfries could be the key.
Italian outlet Coriere dello Sport claim that the flying wing-back’s exit from the San Siro is now ‘certain’ as Man Utd and Chelsea wait to pounce. The Red Devils are reportedly looking to bolster in the right-back department with manager Erik ten Hag wholly unconvinced by Aaron Wan-Bissaka.
However, it appears as though Chelsea hold the upper hand as Graham Potter’s side have been pronounced ‘big favourites’ to snap up Dumfries, whose stock could rise even further with the Netherlands still alive and kicking in Qatar.
His best performance to date came in the 3-1 win over the USA last week, putting Louis van Gaal’s side through to the quarter-finals. From wing-back, Dumfries burst forward time and again to rack up two assists and a well-taken volley, proving that he is one of the most productive players of his type in world football.
