Reports say Man Utd and Chelsea ‘tested the waters’ by signing Inter Milan full-back Denzel Dumfries in the summer.
The right-back made a name for himself during his spell at PSV between 2018 and 2021.
Dumfries was linked with a move to Everton last summer before signing for Inter Milan for an initial fee of €12.5million.
Ronaldo told to ‘pack your bags’ by Man United, while Ten Hag only needs one outfit
The Dutchman registered five goals and seven assists in 45 appearances for Inter Milan in all competitions last season. He is also a regular for the Netherlands, having been capped 35 times since 2018.
Sport Mediaset (via Sport Witness) report that Dumfries are now worth ‘at least double’ €12.5million. They add that Inter Milan wouldn’t sell him for anything less than €30m.
Man Utd, Chelsea and Bayern Munich are all said to have ‘tested the waters’ to sign him this summer.
The same report also notes that Dumfries’ Inter Milan teammate – Stefan de Vrij – is another target for Man Utd.
Somewhere else, Cristiano Ronaldo has been told of a ‘sexy’ transfer option amid reports linking him with a move to Chelsea from Manchester United.
Lothar Matthaus made over 400 appearances for Bayern Munich during his playing career. He thinks a move to the German club for Ronaldo ‘would be sexy’:
“Of course, it wouldn’t be a transfer for the future. He is 37 and would always be in the headlines,” Matthaus wrote for Sky Germany.
“I don’t know if he fits into the Bayern Munich system either. But he’s still an outstanding goalscorer.
“He is one of the greatest strikers of all time and would definitely score around 30 goals. Refunding through shirt sales and the like would be guaranteed.
“Ronaldo at Bayern would be sexy! At least you should think about the options and play them once.
“If you at Bayern are of the opinion that Cristiano Ronaldo is still physically capable of really helping for another year or two and that you can invest the transfer fee generated for Lewandowski more or less one-to-one in the Portuguese megastar, I I would. Think about it.”
