Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson is set to decide on his future within the next two weeks.
That’s according to ESPN, who say that the club have offered the out-of-contract shot-stopper an improved offer, but with interest aplenty in his services, he’ll take some time to contemplate his next move.
Understandably, United are desperate to retain the 21-year-old who enjoyed a fantastic loan spell with Shrewsbury Town in League One last season.
After playing week-in-week-out football, Henderson is keen to continue that trend into 2018/19, but it looks as though the Red Devils won’t be able to offer him that luxury.
David de Gea is obviously first choice, whereas we have an excellent back-up in Sergio Romero and an immensely talented youngster in Joel Pereira. Henderson is an excellent goalkeeper in his own right, but he’s always going to be facing an uphill battle.
Perhaps it’s in his best interests to move on and get that regular football that his abilities deserve. I’d urge him to make the move to a Championship side rather than a Premier League one, though. I wouldn’t want Henderson to leave Old Trafford, for him to only sit on the bench for Wolverhampton Wanderers or somewhere similar.
