Loads of United fans react to news Henderson signs 6-year contract to fight De Gea for keeper’s role

We are delighted with the news that Dean Henderson has signed a new long-term contract and is expected to fight for the No.1 spot at Manchester United.

It’s difficult not to have any concerns about United’s goalkeeping situation. Of course, we remain loyal to David de Gea but there were times last term when Sergio Romero should have stood in place of the Spaniard. Even just to take De Gea out of the spotlight.

Now, it’s time to wonder what this means for the Argentine because he won’t accept falling down another place in Solskjaer’s goalkeeping pecking order. Romero has been a great servant at Old Trafford and he could prove to be a quality addition for a top-flight side in search of a new stopper.

Although it would be a shame to lose Romero, United clearly have bigger fish to fry.

Henderson has signed a six-year deal with the Reds and will be the one to keep De Gea on his toes. Eventually the Englishman will replace what will be known as the old guard, if he can continue to perform like he did for Sheffield United on loan.

United fans on Twitter have had their say about the news surrounding Henderson.
