If Denzel ends up being “the sacrifice” I wouldn’t be too upset.
The sale is only half of the equation though. The other half is who management would get to replace him. I do not think we can look at transfers in isolation without considering the player (if any) that comes in. For example, if the club agreed to sell, not replace him and make Darmian a starter then I would not be happy with sacrificing Dumfries.If Denzel ends up being “the sacrifice” I wouldn’t be too upset.
This wouldn't make much sense, the point of selling Dumfries would be to make money by replacing him with a cheaper option.Sell for 30, sign Molina for 20+ counterparts or even full 30 udinese asking.
Dumfries is too limited for me and if there's a good offer I'll sell him immediately
That's not how this works. We need to make money, if we can make 20m or more plusvalenza with Dumfries we do that. Dumfries has been good, but not that good that we wouldn't sacrifice him if good enough offer arrives.It took Dumfries 6-7 months to settle into the team, just like it took that long for Hakimi before him. Can we keep fucking around with our RWB?
I hope we don't sell until we can afford to upgrade .

I’ve been on the record as being anti selling Dumfries. I think we are underestimating his impact on the team in terms of mentality. He isn’t technically gifted but he’s a D’Ambrosio type. He is only 26 and he has developed a lot in a season. I’d like to see what Inzaghi can get out of him with a full preseason under his belt to work on attacking movements.
However, with that being said, if we HAVE to sell someone for plusvalenza and there are offers for Dumfries he should probably be the one to go. Essentially the two Dutch guys are the players that are the most expendable from the ones that actually have transfer value.
There are solid RWB options available in the Serie A market that are younger and probably have a bit more quality. Molina would probably be my first choice with Singo close behind.
I'm saying all of this coz finding proper useful wb is really hard in today's football, they are rare coz position is difficult as fuck. We struck gold in hakimi, maybe silver with dumfries so just by a rule of chance we will probably struck shit next time around.
