Man United outcast accepts Old Trafford run is over as Tottenham and Chelsea register interest

Dean Henderson is among the players who could be sold this summer to finance the revenue, and the goalkeeper is increasingly unlikely to claim a starting job at the club.

Henderson signed a new contract following his impressive two seasons on loan at Sheffield United, but has struggled to make an impact at Old Trafford ever since.

David de Gea has continued to protect the net and United are reportedly in talks with the Spaniard over a new contract but with reduced wages.

An extended stay at United for De Gea, who has been a mainstay in the team since he joined in 2011, would almost certainly rule out a long-term future for Henderson.

And now, Henderson has reportedly accepted that his dream of becoming United’s first-choice goalkeeper may not come true.

That’s according to Football Insider, who say that in the midst of Henderson’s realization, he is now pushing to secure a permanent move away from the club this summer.

Henderson is currently on loan at Nottingham Forest, but a premature injury mid-season has meant he is unlikely to feature again this season as the Premier League newcomers have signed Keylor Navas on loan to cover.

According to the report, it is claimed that Henderson was irritated by the deal at United and is now looking to force a move to give himself the best chance of returning to the England fold.

Tottenham are also said to be interested in Henderson, with Chelsea also named as a possible destination. Forest is interested in making his temporary stay permanent, but that depends on avoiding relegation.

SN’s verdict…
It’s been almost three years since Henderson’s breakthrough loan at Sheffield United ended and since then he hasn’t done enough to prove that Erik ten Hag should trust him.

Furthermore, Henderson’s public outbursts have done little to win him the benefit of the doubt and cashing in on his asset may be the best move for United.
