Denzel Dumfries could find himself benched for the fourth consecutive time in Inter’s match against Fiorentina as talks over a contract extension stall. The Dutch player’s exclusion is attributed to his less than optimal physical condition following an injury suffered in December. Meanwhile, negotiations for a contract extension have hit a roadblock.
According to Calciomercato.com, Inter are willing to offer Dumfries a salary increase from his current €2.5 million net per year. However, the player’s entourage is demanding a figure considered excessive by the Inter executives, leading to a halt in renewal discussions. If the situation persists until June, Dumfries is poised to hit the outgoing market next summer.
The article sheds light on the potential stalemate in Dumfries’ contract negotiations with Inter. The club is willing to recognize his contributions with a salary bump, but disagreements over financial terms have brought talks to a standstill. The report suggests that if a resolution is not reached by June, Dumfries could be listed for sale in the upcoming transfer window.
The piece also explores the prospect of a swap deal involving Dumfries. Looking ahead to the next season, Inter is open to the idea of using him as part of an exchange for another player. Wan-Bissaka emerges as a prominent name in this context, with the Inter management viewing him favorably. However, the challenges lie not only in negotiating a deal but also in overcoming the substantial €55 million spent by Manchester United to acquire Wan-Bissaka from Crystal Palace. Despite these hurdles, the notion of utilizing Dumfries as a bargaining chip remains on the table, irrespective of the player involved in the exchange.
