Manchester United need to strengthen their squad in the summer transfer window and they must also hold on the key young players for the future.
According to an exclusive story covered by The Sun, Man Utd are prepared to agree fresh terms worth £5.2million-a-year (£100,000-a-week) with Dean Henderson to ward off interest from Chelsea, who would pay about £50 million to hire his services.
Transfer: Man Utd prepared to spend big to sign £130million star – Report
The 23-year-old goal keeper has not made a single senior appearance for the Red Devils as yet because the Old Trafford outfit have two top goalies in the form of David De Gea and Sergio Romero.
However, Henderson’s brilliant performances on loan for Sheffield United clearly indicate that he has what it takes to serve Man United in the long run.
Despite spending a lot of cash on defenders in the summer transfer window and having a world class shot stopper like De Gea in the goal, Man Utd have conceded more goals than the Blades, for whom the young English goalie has been fantastic under the management of Chris Wilder.
So far, our Spanish goal keeper has conceded 30 goals in 29 league outings this season and kept 8 clean sheets.
On the other hand, after keeping the highest number of clean sheets in the Championship last term, Henderson has so far featured in 27 PL games for Sheffield United this season, conceded just 22 goals and kept 10 clean sheets.
In your opinion, is Dean Henderson good enough to become the first choice goalie at Old Trafford? Does he deserve a bumper new deal worth £5.2million-a-year?
I dont think he is up there with De Gea…. still needs more experience
He is worth investing in for the future.
