Nottingham Forest ready to fork out £30m for 26-year-old Manchester United star

Nottingham Forest ‘prepared’ to pay £30 million for Manchester United shot-stopper Dean Henderson

Premier League rivals Nottingham Forest are ‘prepared’ to pay £30 million to Manchester United for shot-stopper Dean Henderson, according to the Manchester Evening News.

The England international joined the Tricky Trees on loan last summer. However, now, the West Bridgford-based club are interested in acquiring the goalkeeper’s services on a permanent basis.

After Steve Cooper’s team beat Arsenal 1-0 in their previous Premier League match, they secured their place in the Premier League. Subsequently, the City Ground side informed the 26-year-old of their intention to keep him.

Henderson is currently under contract at the Old Trafford side until the summer of 2025. During his spell with Forest, they were covering the shot-stopper’s £110,000 a week salary.

The English national has been pivotal to the Tricky Trees’ success in the current campaign. Unfortunately, the goalkeeper’s season was cut short after picking up a thigh strain in January.

Since then, Cooper’s team have relied on Keylor Navas in between the sticks. The former Real Madrid star signed for the West Bridgford-based club in January on loan until the end of the campaign.

At the moment, David de Gea is the number one at United. The Spaniard has been Erik ten Hag’s preferred option. However, the former Atletico Madrid star’s future at the club is uncertain. But he is expected to sign a new contract.

The 32-year-old has made a few glaring errors this season. Unfortunately, the gaffer does not have a lot of quality on the bench to count on, with Tom Heaton and Jack Butland at his disposal.

Therefore, we could evidently do with a quality number two in our ranks. But will the Red Devils want to cash in on Henderson in the coming months instead? Only time will tell.
