Dean Henderson seeks guarantees before committing to Man United

According to the Mirror, Dean Henderson has sought guarantees about his future at Manchester United amidst interest from Chelsea.

The United stopper returns to Old Trafford after a successful two-year loan spell at Sheffield United. With Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continuing to back an under-fire David de Gea, Henderson’s future is open for interpretation.

Meanwhile, Chelsea boss Frank Lampard is on the lookout for a keeper to replace an underperforming Kepa Arrizabalaga. The Blues are ready to hand Henderson a £170,000-a-week deal if he fails to get the guarantees he is seeking about his future.

Solskjaer is keen to see the youngster commit his future to the club. Henderson is, however, holding off until he gets an assurance that he will start next season as United’s first-choice keeper.

According to the report, the Norwegian is reluctant to do so and still has faith in De Gea. More so, the Spaniard just extended his United contract last year.

While Henderson is keen to make a name for himself in red, he is not averse to moving elsewhere if he is denied the opportunity he seeks. With two years left on his current deal, Chelsea have been backed to make a £55million bid.

Henderson is at the top of Lampard’s wishlist of potential keepers. He is not the only suitor from London, with Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho also keen.

Henderson kept 13 clean sheets in 36 games for the Blades this season. Blades boss Chris Wilder is keen to sign him on loan for a third season. They could find it difficult to come up with the cash to finance a permanent deal.

Henderson is keen to settle his future before he leaves on vacation later this week. United should tread carefully regarding what they decide to do.

In attempting to show loyalty to an underperforming De Gea, they might lose out on arguably a deserving candidate.
