Manchester United add player to first team


Manchester United have added Dean Henderson to the first-team roster on the club’s website ahead of next season. Henderson shone on loan at Sheffield United last campaign and the season before, and will be keen to prove himself under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer next season.

Returning from Sheffield United, it may seem obvious that Henderson will be added to United’s first-team roster, but it’s interesting to see his promotion given that he has remained listed as a U23 player on the entire website. throughout his two loan spells at Bramall Lane.

However, after two great seasons playing under Chris Wilder, the young keeper is now officially as part of the first team at Old Trafford with David de Gea, Sergio Romero, Lee Grant and Joel Pereira.

Henderson signed a new three-year deal with United in July and is sparking interest from Chelsea amid talks about a new contract.

The young goalkeeper would only be ready to return to United if he is promoted to first-choice goalkeeper with playing time considered essential for him next season ahead of the rescheduled European Championship.

Speaking last week, Solskjaer suggested United are unlikely to start next season with De Gea, Romero and Henderson in their first team.

“I think I have to be the most privileged coach in the world with the goaltending department, with Sergio, David and we have Dean Henderson back; three best, best goalkeepers, ”he said.

“This season has shown how important Sergio has been for us and, for me, David still performing. We will see what we do for the rest of the season and for the future. Difficult, yes. But it’s a nice problem to have.

“As you say, the competition for places is important, we are looking to have competition for places. We have Dean, Sergio, David in the line. Lee [Grant], the fantastic professional that he is, supporting them.

“It will be difficult to keep three of them at the club, so we’ll see what the decision is. “
