Man Utd in Dean Henderson row with Sheffield Utd as Red Devils prepare new contract


Manchester United’s contract negotiations with Dean Henderson are likely to cause a problem for Sheffield United if the Blades want the goalkeeper on loan again next season.Henderson’s future has been the subject of much discussion after impressing for the Blades this quarter, ending the campaign with 13 clean sheets.

That was the same number of shutouts as Red Devils No.1 David de Gea, who is increasingly in the spotlight following a string of high-profile mistakes this season.

United want to tie Henderson to a new long-term deal, with the 23-year-old having sparked interest from Chelsea as Frank Lampard aims for a replacement for Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Henderson, who has been touted as a future England star, doesn’t want to reheat the bench at Old Trafford, so one option is for him to return to Bramall Lane to continue his development as United keep their faith in De Gea for one more season. .

However, the Red Devils will want Sheffield United to pay all Henderson salaries, according to The Sun.

And that could be a problem for Chris Wilder’s side, with Henderson supposed to earn £ 100,000 a week if he accepts United’s new deal.

The Blades have covered part of Henderson’s salary over the past two seasons, but it was far less than what the keeper should offer.

United need to be cautious about their young prospect, with Henderson highlighting his desire to be the goalkeeper of choice for club and country.

He said TV3 : “I think it’s clear to everyone. I want to play for Manchester United and England.

“I always feel like I hit a brick wall. Maybe I’ll get the chance [to play for Man Utd], maybe I won’t, then I will have to look down another avenue. ”

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer predicted great things for Henderson, saying: “Dean has had a fantastic two years at Sheffield United.

“He will eventually become number one for England and Manchester United. ”

Meanwhile, Sheffield United are preparing an improved offer for Bournemouth goalkeeper Aaron Ramsdale, according to the Daily mail.

The Blades saw a £ 12million offer turned down earlier this week but are willing to increase their offer to £ 15million.
