Manchester United reject approach for Dean Henderson

Manchester United have rejected an approach for Dean Henderson, who is currently on loan at Sheffield United, by Chelsea, with United being unwilling to sell to their top-four rivals.


Chelsea made the approach as Frank Lampard seeks a new goalkeeper to replace the inconsistent Kepa Arrizabalaga, who has had a very mixed time at the club.


Henderson has impressed a lot this season, keeping 13 Premier League clean sheets this season, only bettered by Nick Pope, Ederson and Alisson.


This is a very impressive record considering that David de Gea has 12 clean sheets, and Chelsea's Kepa has just eight clean sheets.


Chelsea's recruitment and analyst team rate Henderson very highly, with the 22-year-old's transfer value being around £40 million.


Whilst de Gea is United's first-choice keeper for sure, there are still several suggestions that Henderson could take over the Spaniard's place in the coming seasons, especially with the United keeper having quite a mediocre season by his very high standards.


Chelsea have already signed Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner, with them also being linked with Declan Rice and Kai Havertz.
