Dean Henderson set for United return if David de Gea leaves


According to several reports published, mainly those by Manchester Evening News, Dean Henderson is confident of becoming Manchester United's first-choice goalkeeper with David de Gea's future with the club still hanging in the balance.


De Gea has only a year left on his current contract with Manchester United, and there appear to be no negotiations ongoing about his renewal so far, sparking rumours about him possibly departing the club this summer.

The Spaniard has been linked with Paris Saint-Germain for the whole season, and with him enduring quite a torrid season in England, he would be inclined to leave the club and start afresh in a completely different league.


According to reports, if David de Gea was to leave, then Henderson would want to return to United to try and fight for a first-team place against Sergio Romero. However, if de Gea is not sold this summer, then the 22-year-old goalkeeper is reportedly keen to stay at Sheffield United on loan and gain some more experience of Premier League football.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had his say regarding the goalkeeper situation at the club last week, saying that Dean Henderson has been "fantastic", and for him "to play a year in the Premier League might be the best thing."


Dean Henderson has kept 21 clean sheets from 46 games in the EFL Championship this season, winning the Golden Glove in the process, as Sheffield United went back up to the Premier League for the first time since 2006-07.
