De Gea concerns grow for Man Utd as Henderson, Onana stances emerge

Manchester United are concerned about the recent downturn in performances from goalkeeper David de Gea and have developing situations involving Dean Henderson and Andre Onana, according to reports.

De Gea, who was linked with Real Madrid for a number of transfer windows, ended that speculation by signing a lucrative new contract at Old Trafford in September.

The Spain international remains Ole Gunnar Solskjaer‘s unrivalled number one choice between the sticks but according to the Transfer Window Podcast, club insiders are concerned about his form.

It is claimed that the club are worried about De Gea‘s downturn in performances since signing his new deal and are engaged in discussions about whether to keep or replace him.

What’s more, insiders are thought to be unhappy after De Gea’s recent criticism of Solskjaer and his tactics, which ended his potential candidacy to be captain.

Indeed, United loaned Dean Henderson back to Sheffield United last summer and the Englishman, who has 10 Premier League clean sheets this term, is being considered as the most cost-effective way to keep De Gea on his toes next term.

However, Henderson – who received his first England call-up in October – reportedly wants guarantees that he will be United’s number one if he is to come back to Manchester.

Elsewhere, it is also claimed that United made an unsuccessful bid for Ajax’s Andre Onana last summer and previous reports have indicated that the Cameroon goalkeeper is still a target for the Red Devils.

The Transfer Window Podcast says that Ajax are aware they will likely sell Onana and want to be involved in all relevant discussions in case United go back in for their player.

Previous reports also suggested that United could look to bring Henderson back for the remaining games of the season if the Premier League restarts, in a bid to keep ahead of the Blades in the race for European qualification.

However, Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder explained that it would be “morally” better to allow Henderson to remain in South Yorkshire.
