PL giants to step up pursuit of Man United star following another defensive setback

Dean Henderson is a promising player

Chelsea keen on Manchester United loanee Dean Henderson

According to the Express, Chelsea are set to ask Manchester United to name their price for goalkeeper Dean Henderson.

Current number one Kepa Arrizabalaga has endured a difficult spell at the club. The Spaniard has done little to justify his position as the world’s most expensive goalkeeper.

Kepa endured another night to forget as the Blues fell 3-0 to Sheffield United at Bramall Lane. Lampard looks to have reached the breaking point and is keen to recruit Dean Henderson.

Currently on loan at Sheffield, Henderson has established himself as one of the best shot-stoppers in the league. Chelsea will face stiff competition from Sheffield United, who are keen to keep him.

The player, for his part, is keen to succeed David de Gea as the number one at United. However, with the 29-year-old signing an extension just last year, it looks unlikely to happen this season.

Offering him a starting spot with potential Champions League participation on the table could be Chelsea’s selling point. United must, however, reject all approaches.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a fan of the player. The Norwegian expressed his belief that Henderson will one day don the number one jersey at Old Trafford. However, that does appear to be at least a season away.

United must not bring back the Englishman only for him to rot on the bench. Henderson deserves to be playing regularly.

According to the report, Chelsea realise they may not be able to pull off a deal and will consider the option to loan him.

United must not in any circumstances loan him to our rivals. The Blues have strengthened the attack and look set to have a busy summer. Handing them Henderson will reduce one Achilles heel.

Excellent goalkeepers are akin to matchwinners and in Henderson, we potentially have one. Selling him could be a decision we might eventually come to rue.

Henderson won the EFL Golden Glove in 2019 and was also a part of the English team that won the FIFA Under-20 World Cup in 2017. He is also in the race for this season’s Premier League Golden Glove and is one clean sheet behind Nick Pope.
