Chelsea boosted as Serie A club would be ‘willing to sell’ €40m Man Utd target


Inter Milan would reportedly be ‘willing to sell’ their full-back Denzel Dumfries this summer amid interest from Chelsea and Manchester United.

Dumfries’ reputation has grown ten-fold over the past couple of seasons. He was a mainstay for PSV for over three years up until the end of the 2020/21 campaign.

The powerful right-back went onto shine for the Netherlands at the delayed European Championships last summer.

The 26-year-old was linked with Everton last summer, though he ended up making the move to Inter Milan. Given how Everton’s season panned out, this proved to be a wise decision.

Dumfries showed how dangerous he can be going forward as he was able to grab five goals and four assists for Inter Milan in Serie A.

His contract runs until 2025 and he has already established himself as a key player for the Italian side.

Despite this, according to CalcioMercato (via Sport Witness), the Italian side do not consider Dumfries to be ‘unsellable’.

The report claims that Chelsea have ‘set their sights’ on Dumfries this summer, while Man Utd are also keen to sign him. 

Inter Milan would want €40m to sell the Dutchman this summer after they splashed out €15m to bring him in last year.

If Chelsea are able to seal the signing, Thomas Tuchel may start to play current right wing-back Reece James as a right centre-back as part of his favoured 3-4-3 formation.

The Blues and Man Utd are also understood to be battling for Frenkie de Jong’s services.

The fight for his signature has already dragged on far too long, though it does not appear to be getting any closer to concluding.

United have agreed a €75m fee with Barcelona to sign De Jong, but mixed reports have emerged regarding his desire to move to Manchester. 

This seems to have alerted Tuchel’s side. If Spanish outlet Sport are to be believed, De Jong ‘would only agree to leave if it is for Chelsea’.

The Blues have their own problems as they ‘do not pay as much’ as United are planning to for De Jong. So strap yourselves in for some deadline day drama. A deal sheet may be needed for this one.

Chelsea have signed two players so far this summer following Todd Boehly’s takeover. Around £85m has been spent to sign Raheem Sterling and Kalidou Koulibaly from Man City and Napoli respectively.
