Manchester United lining up bid for Denzel Dumfries: report

Manchester United are reportedly interested in bringing in PSV star Denzel Dumfries as they continue their efforts to improve their defensive options.

The Dutchman has had an impressive season in the Netherlands, scoring four times and assisting seven in the Eredivisie as well as performing admirably for his country.

The 23 year old fits United’s transfer policy of signing young stars for the future and he could potentially come for cheap.

United have been blown out of the water with Crystal Palaces demands for Aaron Wan-Bissaka while PSG’s Thomas Meunier has been sending mixed signals regarding his future.

Dumfries would certainly been an improvement on Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s current options which includes the likes of Ashley Young and Matteo Darmian.

According to the Sun, Denzel is available for £25m and comes as a cheaper alternative to Wan-Bissaka as well as a younger alternative to Meunier.

The Red Devils would be setting the tone by refusing to bend to Palace’s ridiculous asking price and so clubs in the future will know not to overprice their stars.

If anything, Solskjaer could use his interest in Dumfries as a way to scare Aaron into forcing his way out of the London club and therefore making his valuation decrease.
