Manchester United have held deep discussions to sign Inter Milan defender Denzel Dumfries.
The right-back position has been a bit of a problem for Manchester United over the last few years. Diogo Dalot and Aaron Wan-Bissaka have often rotated with each other, with neither player cementing a guaranteed starting spot in the side.
This season, both players have shown signs of improvement, but Manchester United may consider upgrading if they want to challenge for titles and trophies.
