Man Utd Transfer News: Ed Woodward sets two week window to decide Dean Henderson’s future | Football | sport


Dean Henderson’s immediate future at Manchester United is expected to be decided within the next two weeks amid interest from Chelsea.

Henderson has spent the last two seasons on loan at Sheffield United, helping them secure promotion to the Premier League and then qualify for the first half of this quarter.And his impressive performances have come as David De Gea has looked like a shadow of himself, making several mistakes this season.

The Spaniard signed a lucrative new contract early in the season and his options are limited if United decide to offload him.

This means manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has to decide whether to stay with De Gea or give Henderson a chance.

To complicate matters, Chelsea are on the hunt for a new goalkeeper with manager Frank Lampard ready to sell Kepa Arrizabalaga and a Henderson admirer.

According to Sky Sports, United executive vice president Ed Woodward is expected to speak with the board about the club’s budget for the transfer window and a new contract for Henderson.

United are claimed to be signing a five-year contract for Henderson as a sign of their belief in him.

Henderson could then be allowed to spend another season at Bramall Lane, where he has a good relationship with manager Chris Wilder.

Speaking after United’s win over Leicester on Sunday, club legend Gary Neville said Solskjaer’s decision to keep De Gea’s confidence in their last two games of the Premier League season was a sign that he wanted the Spanish keeper to stay.

The Sky Sports expert said: “I was nervous about him in his first or two years at Manchester United, but he turned out to be one of the best goalkeepers in the world for four or five years. .

“In the last 18 months he has been riddled with errors and only Solskjaer can make that decision on the goalkeeper.

“What I would say about this decision is that Solskjaer has to be decisive and ruthless with this decision, he has to think about himself and the club.

“If he thinks De Gea is going to return to where he was before, stay with him.

“Before the West Ham game I was 50-50 if Solskjaer would drop him. When I found out he was playing, I said before the game in my interview that the only time you would be able to prove whether it was the right decision or not would be on Sunday at 6 p.m.

“We are here and it looks like he made the right decision as leaving De Gea on Wednesday now would have been a massive signal to everyone that Solskjaer was knocking him out of the club.

“He still has that decision in his hands, but he at least got over it until the end of the season.

“De Gea was not wrong about the two matches. ”
