Well, I guess this transfer rumour was bound to happen eventually. I’m just surprised it took as long as it did. According to Goal, Manchester United could sell the world-class 29-year-old, David de Gea.
Apparently, the superstar Spaniard could be sold this summer, in order to raise funds for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, who is planning a long-term rebuild at Old Trafford.
Goal go one better, adding that the Reds continue to monitor starlet Dean Henderson as a potential replacement – who is massively impressing while on loan with Sheffield United.
De Gea only signed a new contract in September, after years of his future being up in the air. It’d be typical of United to move off of him after finally getting wanted they want from their number one.
However, the question definitely has to be asked. We’ve seen more and more mistakes creep into De Gea’s game lately, while the command of his penalty area still isn’t anywhere near the level it should be at. Henderson definitely ticks that box…
At 22, Henderson could be the number one of this club for the next ten years, though he’s not going to take second-best. He won’t want to be rotated, he wants that jersey all for himself. Simply put, there’s no in-between. United have to make their choice.
I know it’d be the unpopular one, but I’d definitely move forward with Henderson. After all, we’re already in rebuild mode so why not go the whole hog?
