Manchester United missed out on the chance to take a huge step towards Champions League qualification as they were held to a goalless draw by Southampton on Sunday. 

The Red Devils had followed up a record 7-0 defeat by Liverpool a week ago with a convincing 4-1 win over Real Betis in the Europa League on Thursday, but they were unable to find a winner against The Saints.

The hosts were reduced to ten men early on at Old Trafford as Brazilian midfielder Casemiro was dismissed for a high tackle, and Erik ten Hag’s side missed out on the chance to put a ten-point gap between themselves and fifth-placed Liverpool.

Regardless of whether or not United do succeed in securing a top four spot this season, The Red Devils look likely to be active during the upcoming summer transfer window.

Now, it appears that the club have renewed their interest in a Serie A full-back.

As per Football Insider, the Manchester side are interested in Inter Milan defender Denzel Dumfries.

It is claimed that United pondered a move for the Dutchman back in January but couldn’t afford the player, but they have now decided to target him once again.

Dumfries is once again being targeted by Manchester United

Ten hag is said to be a huge admirer of the 26-year-old, who joined Inter from Dutch side PSV in the summer of 2021 after impressing at Euro 2020.

Dumfries is currently contracted to the Serie A side until 2025, which puts the club under little pressure to sell the full-back.

The report suggests that an offer in the region of £40-£50 million could be enough to persuade Inter to part ways with the Netherlands international, who has also been linked with Chelsea in recent years.

Since joining Inter in 2021, Dumfries has made more than 75 appearances for his current side, scoring seven goals and providing 13 assists.

Right-back has proved something of a problem area for United in recent months, with Aaron Wan-Bissaka having been seemingly out of favour at Old Trafford, before recently regaining his starting spot from Portugal international Diogo Dalot.
