Nah dude. 50+ mil for Denzel after his performances Europa Nations League. Chelsea got money, they can splurge if they want.

It's amazing that our asking price for Dumfries has gone from 30m, to 35-40m, to 45m, to not 50-60m. It's all good as long as it helps us keep Skriniar.

I'm really not interested in another new player having to come in. Particularly at his position. I'd rather keep consistency within the team. Especially because he alone isn't saving us from selling another star player.
Coach seems to agree with you: Corriere dello Sport report that Inzaghi considers the 26-year-old to be very important and does not want to have to do without him.

Inzaghi was at his office yesterday where he spent around three hours in discussions regarding the transfer window which is now well underway.

One of the players whose name was discussed was Dumfries, who is the subject of transfer interest from a number of top European clubs, particularly in the Premier League.

A big money offer could still arrive for the Dutchman, but the coach considers him to be a key player in terms of making his style of play function, and so he has communicated to the club that they must not let go of him.
This probably means Marotta will sell Denzel for a good price.

I know this will sound strange, but I feel that if a big enough offer comes for Dumfries, you obviously sell him and give Bellanova a proper chance while also having Darmian there just in case. Just seems like the easiest part of the team to replace.

I'm still a bit hesitant on the rumors of him and Skriniar going. That's a massive defensive loss on the right side of the field. Milenkovic is decent but a massive downgrade over Skriniar. If that does indeed happen as is likely, id really like to keep Dumfries. I like Darmian for defensive security but I wouldn't want him starting regularly if Bellanova doesn't work out.

How's that strange? That's what 99% of people think. Literally every player in the squad should be sold before Skriniar, or sacrificed to keep Skriniar. Yet here we are again, quick to sell one of our untouchables before even trying to save them.

Anyway, Darmian is not good enough to be a starting player for any serious title contender. Bellanova is also raw as shit so significant growing pains are to be expected. Without Dumfries, we better hope Bellanova has an explosion otherwise we're in for a frustrating right flank next season - a price I'd happily pay if it meant keeping Skriniar.

He can only be sold if Skriniar stays. Unfortunately both are likely going to be sold. Fans don't love Dumfries enough and management know they can sell him with little backlash. Once we get that first 35 million offer you can kiss this man goodbye

There’s no way management expects to sell dumfries, skriniar,and de vrij, lose perisic, and expect to be cohesive team. I know it’s a business, but part of that business is maintaining a level of success and losing 4 of your starting 11 in one go is not the way to do it. They’re aware so I believe one of if not both dumfries and skriniar stays.

Honestly only difficult player to replace would be Skriniar

De vrij was bad last season and would be bench this season

Persic we got his replacement who is potentially better and way younger on lower wages

Dumfries wasn’t even a clear starter.

People are making it seem we are selling Barella, Brozo, Bastoni, Lautaro and a 17 year old starting goalie who is better than Handa in his priMe…

Stop panicking

Pretty much, but Inzaghi did go with Darmian in some key matches this season. I also get the feeling he is most willing to let him go.

Keep him, let Bellanova get some top team experience, then sell him next summer. There isn't a discount RB in the market we could get that'd be worth selling Dumfries. Good right backs are tough to come across. The only decent option would be some swap move for Cuadrado but that's extremely unlikely.

We got lucky going from a sensation in hakimi to dumfries. He’s obviously not special like hakimi, but he’s good. He’s the kind of good where you don’t worry if he can match up, but also don’t expect him to be a focal point of the match. I though he’d be a bust for sure trying to follow hakimi, but he hasn’t, We’ve been through so many “maybe” players since the treble that I thought dumfries would be another placeholder type, but he’s not. We won’t strike lightning 3 times in a row, so don’t jump at the chance to make a profit from him after one year!! A little continuity would be nice.
