Man Utd set to return for former target this summer with Ten Hag still a 'huge fan' of £50m player
| Last updated
Manchester United are reportedly plotting a summer move for Inter Milan star Denzel Dumfries, with manager Erik ten Hag said to be a 'huge fan' of the player.
United were limited in what they could spend in January, with the club bringing in Jack Butland, Wout Weghorst and Marcel Sabitzer on loan.
They spent the majority of the season's budget in the summer, with Antony, Casemiro and Lisandro Martinez arriving at Old Trafford as Ten Hag's marquee signings.
It was claimed that United were looking to bring in a right-back in January, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka's future in doubt.
But the defender put in a number of good performances following his return from injury, with the Daily Mail claiming he had impressed Ten Hag.
However, having been linked with Dumfries before the most recent window, a new report claims United could go back in for the defender this summer.
Man Utd 'keen on Denzel Dumfries'
Football Insider claim that United could go back in for Dumfries this summer, having not been able to raise funds to secure a permanent deal in January.
It is reported that Inter Milan could be tempted to accept a low fee of between £40-50 million due to financial issues. The Italian giants may be required to sell players this summer as a result of those problems.
Dumfries, who represented Netherlands in all five of their World Cup games last year, joined Inter in 2021 from PSV.
The 26-year-old, therefore, came up against Ten Hag's Ajax side on a number of occasions in the Eredivisie, and the United boss is said to be a 'huge fan' of the player.
However, the club may face strong competition to secure Dumfries' signature. A separate Football Insider report claims that Arsenal, Chelsea and Tottenham could all launch bids for the Dutchman this summer.
Chelsea will surely be seen as an outsider, however, with Reece James and new signing Malo Gusto currently their options at right-back for next season.
