In a recent report, Radio Radio mentioned that Manchester United are showing interest in Inter Milan star Denzel Dumfries. It has been claimed that the Red Devils are eyeing a move to secure the services of the Dutch talent.
Dumfries’ Good Run Of Form In Italian Football
Dumfries is having a decent campaign at San Siro as he has managed to produce a run of impressive displays for the Italian club on the right flank. The 26-year-old has been involved in 29 matches for Inter Milan this season, netting five goals and securing six assists on all fronts.
The Dutch wide player has given a good account of himself in Italian football based on his average of 0.7 tackles, 0.5 interceptions, 1.0 clearances, 1.3 shots and 1.1 key passes per game in Serie A. He has even been tidy with his ball distribution after making 78.3% of his attempted passes in league football (stats via whoscored).
Dumfries’ current contract at the Milan club will run out in the summer of 2025. Thus, the Red Devils might struggle to land him on the cheap next year. Still, he will be a good signing for them based on his recent form for the Netherlands in the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar.
Is Dumfries A Good Choice For Manchester United Head Coach Erik Ten Hag?
Dumfries is a good tackler of the ball and can make some crucial interceptions for his side at the back when he is playing with confidence on the pitch. He can strike the ball with power and accuracy from long range and has got the vision to create some inviting chances for his teammates in the final third. The Dutch sensation can even clear the danger when the opposition are on the front foot. He is primarily a right-sided wide player but can also fill in as a right-back if his manager asks him to do so.
Someone of Dumfries’ skillset will be a decent acquisition for the Red Devils next year as he would serve as an upgrade over Diogo Dalot who has sometimes been guilty of being a bit inconsistent with his performances at Old Trafford this season.
We can expect Dumfries to add more quality to Erik ten Hag‘s squad and help the Mancunian outfit challenge for a few major trophies over the next few years. With all things considered, the talented wide player will be an excellent choice for Man United to pursue in 2023.
