Deal close – Man United set to agree £20.8million terms to keep star

Dean Henderson

Dean Henderson had a terrific campaign on loan with Sheffield United but will he be Man United’s first choice goalie next season?

The English shot stopper wants to regularly start at Old Trafford and he has been linked with a move to Chelsea (The Sun). However, the latest reports are optimistic for the Red Devils.

Transfer: Club await Man United’s counter offer to sign £81million player

According to an exclusive story covered by The Sun, the 23-year-old star is on the verge of agreeing fresh terms with Manchester United and is ready to fight David De Gea for the No.1 spot.

The British outlet have mentioned that Henderson is close to signing a four year contract that will make him earn £100,000-a-week. So the entire worth of the deal is going to be £20.8million.

In my view, it is time for the Red Devils to get rid of De Gea, who has been average for over two years.

The Spanish international made only one appearance in the FA Cup and got Solskjaer’s team eliminated by making two blunders.

He also made just a single appearance in the Europa League and conceded two goals out of Sevilla’s three shots on target. Priot to the semi final, Romero guarded the goal and conceded just 2 goals in 9 appearances.

If Man United seriously want to challenge Liverpool and Manchester City for the Premier League title next season then they really need a reliable star in the goal and in all fairness, Solskjaer should prefer Henderson over De Gea.

The young shot stopper kept 13 clean sheets for Sheffield last term and conceded just 33 goals in 36 league appearances.

Have your say – Who should start in the goal for Manchester United?

  1. De Gea past his sell by date time to say thanks for the memories but you cant defend his atrocious record this season . You get to a Semi class players mindset is they are already in the Final. 3 Semis enough said time to retire, as he will not have any sell on value. please take Calamity Jane Woodward with you and maybe the Gazers who as usual seem to fail to realise you need to speculate to accumulate, every bad decision impacts on the united share price, perhaps if it drops low enough we can buy the Club back.
