Manchester United’s Dutch International target sends clear Premier League move to Solskjaer, which opens door to deal
Netherlands international Denzel Dumfries has admitted that he hopes to make a move abroad to the Premier League
The right-back has enjoyed two-and-a-half seasons at Philips Stadion since his arrival on a five-year deal in mid-2018 from Heerenveen, in part as a replacement for Atletico Madrid-bound Santiago Arias.
And his performances for the Dutch giants has led to speculation that the likes of Manchester United, Newcastle and Arsenal are all interested in trying to bring him to the Premier League in the coming windows.
And amid the speculation, the Dutch International has admitted that he has a dream to play in the Premier League, and also conceded that he may have already left the Eredivisie had it not been for the Covid-19 pandemic.
“We are in talks and the intention, as it stands, is to extend my contract,” the defender told Voetbal International. “But a contract extension does not automatically mean that I will stay here longer.
“My interests currently align with those of PSV of course – but I also have my own career. There are new things on the horizon [for me].
“[A departure] did not happen [due to the pandemic] and I am very happy at PSV. But I do feel that, as a footballer and as a person, I am ready to take the next step abroad.
“The Premier League and the Bundesliga, they suit my game. I can see the headlines again, but I think I can say this and I think everyone can see that I am ready to move on.
“I have played for four years at the highest level in the Netherlands and have played more than a hundred matches for PSV. It will soon be time for the next step [but] a title will be the icing on the cake.”
Would he be a good signing for Man Utd? He could be a very good squad member
