In a recent report, Calciomercatoweb mentioned that Real Madrid are hoping to land Inter Milan ace Denzel Dumfries for €40m next summer. It has been claimed that Los Blancos are showing interest in securing the services of the Dutch sensation.
Dumfries’ Impressive Form In Serie A This Season
Dumfries is enjoying a decent campaign at San Siro and has performed relatively well on the right side of Inter’s midfield. The Duch talent has featured in 23 matches for the Milan outfit this season, netting two goals and picking up three assists in the process across multiple competitions.
The 26-year-old has given a good account of himself on the right flank as he is averaging 0.9 clearances, 1.1 shots and 1.0 key passes per game in Serie A. He has even interchanged possession relatively well with his teammates in the opponent’s half based on his pass success rate of 78.2% in the Italian top tier (stats via whoscored).
Dumfries is under contract at the Italian club until the summer of 2025. Therefore, Real Madrid will have to make a sizable offer if they are serious about recruiting the Netherlands international this year.
Should Real Madrid Boss Carlo Ancelotti Move In For Dumfries?
At the moment, Dumfries is playing some of the best football of his playing career. He doesn’t mind clearing the danger when the opposition are on the offensive. The Netherlands full-back can strike the ball with power and accuracy from long range and has got the eye to play a few decisive passes on the attacking end of the field. He has mainly functioned as a right-sided wide player for Inter this season but can also full in as a right-back if told to do so.
At 26, Dumfries’ best years are ahead of him which makes him a decent option for Los Blancos to consider at the end of this campaign. With all things considered, Ancelotti should focus on moving in for the Dutch wide player during the summer transfer window as long as he is available for a fair price.
