Well this could certainly lead to bad news for us couldn’t it?
It’s something that is very much out of our hands, so we’d just have to wait and see what happens.
According to a report from Sky Sports, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer ‘hasn’t ruled out’ the possibility of letting David De Gea and Dean Henderson compete for the number one jersey at Old Trafford over the summer.
This of course means bad news, as Henderson has made it clear that the only way he will come back to Sheffield United next season is if he isn’t guaranteed to be their number one going forward. And with incumbent De Gea under a lot of pressure right now after some lacklustre performances in recent games, it isn’t impossible to believe that Henderson could win that battle.
Will Henderson be with us next season?
I’ve made it clear in the past that I think Henderson would be the best option for us going forward, but I think we’re getting to the stage that we need to give up chasing Henderson and just look at our backup options when it comes to the goalkeeping position.
Just get the whole thing out of the way and give them as much time as possible to integrate themselves into the squad given the short turnaround time before next season. And with Henderson’s situation at Manchester United set to take even longer to sort out, then I fear we’re going to miss what is essentially a deadline to get things sorted.
If we spend too much time waiting for Henderson to come to us, and it falls through, then we are really playing catch-up for next season.
What about you? What do you make of this news surrounding Henderson?
