Manchester United have ‘launched several signals of openness’ for a deal for Inter Milan defender Denzel Dumfries, who is ‘on his way out’ of the club.

That’s according to Gazzetta dello Sport, who say the Dutchman wants to move to the Premier League and his agent is working on it.

In fact, the defender’s representatives are ‘already intensifying contacts’ with Manchester United after opening them in the January transfer window.

A move never happened at point, with Manchester United instead preferring to spend their available funds to bring in Wout Weghorst and bolster their forward line.

The right-back spot remains one Erik ten Hag wants to strengthen, though, with Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan Bissaka yet to establish themselves under him.

That’s led to speculation about Dumfries and Gazzetta say Inter are now waiting for ‘eventual important offers’ from them and other suitors.

They don’t intend to let the defender go on the cheap and will insist that he departs for offers ‘commensurate’ with his value.

They currently value him at no less than €50m and won’t be willing to accept ‘technical quid pro quos’, such as players being involved in the deal. For them it is a case of ‘cash only’ as they need the money to carry out their own business.

Indeed they are eyeing a move for Bayern Munich’s Noussair Mazraoui, who could be allowed to leave the German giants if they sign Joao Cancelo on a permanent basis from Manchester City.

For Inter to move for him, though, they first need to receive a big offer from Manchester United for Dumfries. His agent is seemingly working hard to make that arrive in the summer.
