Manchester United were interested in Inter Milan defender Denzel Dumfries earlier this summer. He is expected to leave the Italian giants, according to InterLive (h/t Manchester Evening News).

The representatives of the Holland international are anticipating an exit for their client. A January departure does not seem to be on the cards, though. And a move in the next summer transfer window could cost up to £43 million.

The Red Devils were linked with Dumfries in the recent transfer window. However, the 26-year-old stayed put with the Nerazzurri.

United manager Erik ten Hag is keen to add depth to the right-back spot. Currently, the former Ajax head coach has Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka in the squad.

The Portugal international has been the first choice for Ten Hag this season. On the other hand, the former Crystal Palace star has evidently fallen out of favour considering he has not featured much for the Old Trafford side.

Wan-Bissaka has played just four minutes of football in the current campaign under the Dutch manager. The 24-year-old has fallen down the pecking order ever since the departure of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

The arrival of Ralf Rangnick as interim head coach saw Dalot rise in prominence. The 23-year-old has continued to be influential under Ten Hag. The Dutch manager has started the Portuguese in every game this season.

However, fans feel a lack of options at right-back could be detrimental to our season. In the event Dalot picks up an injury or suspension, the Red Devils seemingly do not have a quality replacement.

The 2022/23 campaign is going to be a long one. With the World Cup in the middle of the season, fatigue will evidently affect our squad. It remains to be seen whether United will go after someone like Dumfries to strengthen the squad.
