Forget Wan-Bissaka, Man United scouts urge Ed Woodward to sign £25m defender

The long-running transfer saga regarding the signing of Crystal Palace defender Aaron Wan-Bissaka to Manchester United has taken a new turn.

English tabloid The Sun claims that Manchester United have switched their focus to PSV fullback Denzel Dumfries.  The report reveals that United are frustrated with negotiations for Wan-Bssaka and are seeking alternatives.

Dumfries has emerged as a surprise target and it is reported that United scouts were impressed with the player after watching his games last season.

Dumfries is regarded as a player that has the ability to thrive at Old Trafford and is tailor-made for the style of game that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to implement next season.

PSV are open to selling the player and have pegged a price of £25 million for the pacey defender. Manchester United are expected to make a formal bid for the defender in the coming days.

Dumfries excelled in his debut season providing an excellent outlet on the right with his overlapping runs and crossing ability.

If he makes the move to Old Trafford this summer it would represent an exciting 12 months for Netherlands international. PSV would also make a good profit for the player that was signed last summer for £5 million.
