Manchester United pussyfooting over Dean Henderson future

Manchester United are reportedly dithering over a decision on Dean Henderson’s future.

Erik ten Hag is keen to bring sign a new goalkeeper this summer, with David de Gea’s contract expiring last Friday at midnight.

It has always been reported that Henderson was keen to leave the club, amid strong interest from Nottingham Forest where he spent last season on loan.

On another important note, United have been targeting Andre Onana of Inter Milan as their new No.1 so there’s really no place for Henderson and he is a player we should be looking to make money on.

According to Samuel Luckhurst of the Manchester Evening News, there is a stumbling block over the decision on whether or not to sign the Cameroon international rests on the outcome of De Gea’s future.

Erik ten Hag was understood to be disappointed by how De Gea performed in big games towards the end of the season — Sevilla, West Ham and Manchester City in the FA Cup final — may lead to a bleak outcome in those talks for the keeper.

De Gea’s contract may have expired, but United are still planning to talk with the Spaniard when he returns from holidays as a newlywed.

Meanwhile, the club are pussyfooting over a decision on the future of Henderson. It doesn’t make sense because Henderson wants to leave and I don’t think anyone wants him to stay. We’ve seemingly got an interested buyer at hand, too.

The report claims Henderson has been “perplexed” by suggests he could stay when he considers himself one of the club’s most sellable assets.

  1. ETH must despair as this is just one of many examples of the club being run almost as a Mickey Mouse outfit- a legacy of Woodward who was nothing more than a Glazer lackey Recruitment has been abysmal and nothing more than a scatter-gun approach, fitting square pegs into round holes. and then finding that the square pegs can’t be sold. .
