Manchester United will listen to offers of around £20m for loaned-out goalkeeper Dean Henderson in the summer, according to reports.
Henderson returned to Sheffield United this summer for a season-long spell, having helped the Blades gain promotion from the Championship last season. However, the ambitious England youngster was at fault for the goal that led to his side’s defeat to Liverpool on Saturday.
Despite this, the 22-year-old remains highly-rated, but The Sun claim that his long-term future will not lie at Old Trafford.
Given that first choice shot-stopper David De Gea recently signed a new contract with United, Henderson’s path to first team football if he returns to Carrington looks increasingly blocked.
Therefore, the tabloid claims that the Red Devils are already running background checks on potential backup targets, as they are resigned to losing Henderson – who himself signed a new deal at Old Trafford over the summer as well – given his desire for regular first team action.
It is warned that their £20m asking price, in part generated due to the new contract, may be too much for Sheffield United to make his move permanent, although a number of unnamed Premier League clubs are also said to be interested.
