Manchester United ready to loan 26-year-old to PL club but on one condition

Dean Henderson injury 'may affect' Manchester United summer transfer.

Manchester United will allow Dean Henderson to join the club if one of their major conditions is met

According to Manchester Evening News, Manchester United are ready to loan out 26-year-old custodian Dean Henderson to Nottingham Forest but only on the condition that it contains an obligation to buy.

United are ready to sell Henderson as he provides one of the best options to recoup some money in order to comply with the Financial Fair Play rules.

Nottingham also have their hands tied financially and are not in a position to sign Henderson permanently at the moment.

They are offering United an offer of a loan deal with an obligation to make it permanent if Henderson completes 30 Premier League appearances.

United, however, are not in favour of such a deal and would only allow Henderson to leave for Nottingham on loan if there is an obligatory clause to buy once the loan deal ends.

This would allow United to show one asset which will allow the club to receive funds on a future date, unlike the stipulation of 30 Premier League games, as there is no guarantee of that happening.

With Andre Onana’s move from Inter Milan done and dusted, Erik Ten Hag has got his preferred choice of the keeper which directly leads to the assumption that Henderson will be allowed to leave.

Henderson would decline to be the club’s no.2 while Ten Hag as well is reluctant to let Tom Heaton leave, who is generating interest from Premier League newly promoted team Luton Town.

The England-born shot-stopper was seen as the heir to De Gea’s throne but the plans of both the club and the player have not gone in the direction that was envisaged.

Now, the player wants regular game time while United needs to raise funds through player sales. Hence, Henderson moving to Nottingham is a deal that is likely to happen before the summer transfer window closes.
