Design Question - Web gateway


This is more of a design question,  but what type of implementation/configuration would you recommend if a customer (enduser) is located in a different location (approx 800km) away from its main datacenter (where they have all their vms) with a dedicated ISP provider? This means that Internet routes through their local ISP provider (not through their main datacenter)…

The customer does NOT have a physical  local datacenter (where we would want to install an local on-prem Mwg vm for best latency).

So our only option is to install the VM on their main remote datacenter (which is far away from end users but in same country). A downside with this solution would mean that traffic would have to go in/out through their remote datacenter and BACK to endusers which could cause latency delays since we are also using cache function in mwg.

So what would be our possible options here in MWG If we were to install a Vm on their main datacenter but somehow tunnel traffic through directly through threir local ISP (for best performance)? Our maybe create 2 Nics were traffic in/out is somehow re-routed locally with NIC 1 and out remotly through NIC 2? Or maybe if it would be better to put an MWG in their DMZ zone depending on their network design.. This is also more of a network question/design but I need to know the capability's of the Mwg in order to implement a best optimal design or if you have had similar situations with other customers.
