Man United want Dean Henderson back, ready to select him ahead of De Gea

Ahead of the summer, the Henderson vs De Gea debate is set to rumble on. Now, this latest bold claim suggests that the young Englishman may well be in line for his chance…

It seems pretty obvious (to me anyway) that Manchester United have long-term faith in Dean Henderson. However, the 20-time Premier League champions have a huge decision to make in regards to their starting goalkeeper for next season.

Us Reds fans cannot take away the brilliance of David de Gea, though this season, errors have crept into his game and that simply cannot be denied. With ‘Hendo’ continuing to impress while on loan at Sheffield United and De Gea in gradual decline, the pair feel closer than ever in terms of skill level.

The latest news from the ever-reliable Duncan Castles is definitely in Henderson’s favour. According to Castles, while speaking on The Transfer Window podcast, United are giving ‘serious consideration’ to making the 23-year-old a first-choice player next season. Ahead of De Gea…

Castles also further fuelled the fire, by tweeting that the Reds ‘want him back’. Before claiming they’re ‘ready to select’ the England U21 international ahead of De Gea.

So what happens next term?

From Henderson’s standpoint, he wants first-team guarantees next season, be it at Old Trafford or elsewhere. Apparently, United want to tie him down to a new deal, but the Englishman won’t agree unless he’s handed the number one jersey at a Premier League club in 2020/21 – via a loan or overtaking De Gea in Manchester.

I’m a huge Henderson fan and as this season has progressed. My view is that we need him back at United. I’d love a situation in which both are at the club next term, fighting it out for starts. However, that doesn’t look likely given United’s up-and-coming shot-stopper wants firm guarantees in regards to starting week-in-week-out. I’m just not sure Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will go for that…
