Manchester United announced on Friday that Tom Heaton had rejoined the club on a 3-year deal and Lee Grant had extended his contract by another season. Joel Pereira has been released and Sergio Romero’s time at the club will soon come to an end.
Throwing Tom Heaton into the mix doesn’t help the manager’s goalkeeping situation which is unsustainable, having both Dean Henderson and David de Gea fight for the main role.
And the focus is very much on those two keepers at the moment.
Henderson has battled well with De Gea, with a few slip-ups along the way, but ultimately he is a young goalkeeper too good to pass on.
As a graduate from United’s academy, I think we should celebrate producing talent like him or at least ensure that he gets enough opportunities to prove his worth.
Stretty News understands, as per club sources, that United have already told Henderson they want him to stay this summer.
However, nothing has been promised about being first choice just yet, but we take that as the biggest hint yet that De Gea could be on the move this summer.
A conflicting report from The Times recently stated the Spaniard would stay at United, despite the amount of keepers already in the squad.
It won’t be easy to sell De Gea this summer because he’s the highest paid keeper in the world and a huge risk for any buying club.
A Sanchez-esque loan deal has been tipped to SN.
