Manchester United: Alan Hutton reacts to Denzel Dumfries interest

Manchester United: Alan Hutton reacts to Denzel Dumfries interest -Manchester United News

Former Scotland international Alan Hutton has been reacting to Manchester United’s reported interest in Inter Milan defender Denzel Dumfries, as per Football Insider.

The Lowdown: Dumfries linked with Man United

The Red Devils have made three signings so far this summer, one of which has been Dutch defender Tyrell Malacia.

Dumfries, another Netherlands international, appears to be of interest to Erik ten Hag, alongside long-term target Frenkie de Jong, with reports from Italy over the last 10 days claiming that United are ready to “make an offer” for the 26-year-old if they can offload Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Sky Sports stated back in May that the Englishman isn’t in Ten Hag’s plans, although the Red Devils are yet to move him on with the new season just days away.

The Latest: Hutton’s comments

Hutton, who contributes as a pundit for Sky Sports, was talking to Football Insider regarding a possible move for Dumfries. He waxed lyrical about the Dutchman, who he believes would be a ‘good match’ at Old Trafford.

The ex-Tottenham defender said of the 26-year-old:

“He’s definitely attacking, he loves to get forward.

“We saw it in the Euros with Holland, he’s an outlet, and that is the way Ten Hag wants to play.

“He’s been brought up in that mould of the Dutch football, the passing, the movement, the working hard. He’s had a lot of experience for someone of a young age.

“Of course I think he could come in and hit the ground running. That’s the way he wants to play football so it would be a good match.”

Dumfries at Old Trafford?

Yes, get him in!

Yes, get him in!

Not too bothered!

Not too bothered!

The Verdict: Smart signing?

Dumfries has plenty of experience at the highest level for both club and country and, as Hutton mentioned, has an attacking side to his game, with 32 goals and 40 assists to his name.

He would be able to provide an option as a right-back or right midfielder and could be a shrewd signing, perhaps a necessary one if Wan-Bissaka is eventually moved on.

Ten Hag would be left with Diogo Dalot as United’s only senior right-back in that instance, so bringing in Dumfries could be another smart defensive acquisition after Malacia and Lisandro Martinez.
