Manchester United’s no.1 right-back this season is Diogo Dalot.
The Portuguese has impressed under Erik ten Hag and can currently stake a claim for the best right-back in the Premier League.
His back-up, Aaron Wan-Bissaka, is still at Old Trafford, but it looks as though he has fallen out of favour and is set to leave the club.
This means Manchester United need to sign a new right-back, and one of the names up for discussion has been Denzel Dumfries.
Dumfries was recently in Qatar for the World Cup and shone on a number of occasions, including in the last-16 vs the USA.
He scored one and provided two assists from right-wing-back as the Netherlands saw off the USA by three goals to one.
As a result, he looked like he would be a decent signing for United and a could replacement for AWB.
However, Fabrizio Romano, providing an update on Manchester United’s right-back situation, suggested that the Dutchman is now too expensive:
“Manchester United position on right back situation is clear: priority is to extend Diogo Dalot’s contract, it will be discussed soon. Then it will be time to sell Aaron Wan-Bissaka, agents are exploring Premier League destinations.
“Then to replace him with new right back, Denzel Dumfries as of today is too expensive; Jeremie Frimpong is just one of many options. It’s still early,” said Romano.
