Denzel Dumfries is reportedly being eyed by Real Madrid ahead of a possible chase next summer. However, they’ll target him only if the Dutchman doesn’t extend his contract beforehand. He’s currently tied to Inter until 2025, Spanish publication Defensa Central reports (via Fantacalcio).
The Nerazzurri have been in talks with his camp in recent weeks. While there’s optimism that an agreement will be struck, it’s not imminent yet. They are tending to several renewals, and he’s one of their main priorities.
Real Madrid would pursue Dumfries if the situation stayed the same. Inter could be forced to sell him below market value to avoid any risk. Instead, they’d have plenty of leverage and set a considerable price tag if he penned an extension.
The Nerazzurri seem to be leaning toward keeping the wingback. Either way, they’ll likely profit from his departure in any scenario since they purchased him from AZ for just €14M.
Our Take on Dumfries and Real Madrid
He’s one to watch in the coming months, as Inter won’t risk repeating what happened with Milan Skriniar. He and the club appear on the same page about sticking together, but only putting pen to paper would certify that. Whether they’ll need a ‘plusvalenza’ to mend their finances will be known only well into 2024. He’d be one of the primary candidates to achieve that.
