Manchester United have been criticised for this move.

The current situation embroiling around the entire world has put football under major pressure. The strains and the difficulties have thrown up some unprecedented scenarios which has made it difficult for even a club the size of Manchester United to function appropriately.

As the teams are preparing for the resumption of the Premier League and actively planning on how to carry this out safely for the players, their attention will also be on the upcoming transfers window as well as affirming the future of their current loan players and players whose contracts are running out at the end of the season to further extend them and adjust them for the new season curtail.

Dean Henderson is one of the high profile players who is in that position. The Man United loanee is currently at Sheffield United and his loan contract is set to expire at the end of June and the club have yet to make a statement about whether his sp


will be extended with the Sheffield based side indefinitely until the current season is concluded.

For that exact reason, the Red Devils have come under fire.

ESPN Pundit Julien Laurens speaking on the Gab and Jules podcast via the Daily Express has criticised both United and Sheffield for having not concluded Dean Henderson’s future and has claimed that if the Red Devils intend to recall the goalkeeper upon the expiry of his June 30th contract it would be ‘unfair’ considering the agreement was initially for until the end of the season.

Laurens said the following:

"“It’s not fair, it’s not fair [for them to recall]. They’re entitled technically, but it’s not fair.He signed a contract for the whole season. Technically the whole season isn’t completed yet.”"

Laurens’ words will be harsh and tough to swallow. The pundit is right to criticise the two clubs for not having wrapped up Dean Henderson’s immediate future as it is bound to put strains on the player.

Of course, United are rivals with Sheffield at the moment, with the newly promoted side having pushed for a European spot under Chris Wilder.

But despite the new rivalry, it is likely that Henderson will be extending his stay for the short term at least.

The goalkeeper’s long term future at Old Trafford is still moot. With David de Gea a stalwart number one, Dean Henderson will be unlikely to concede to be his deputy considering the star has been one of the best keepers in the Premier League this season.

Do you think recalling Dean Henderson after the expiry of his contract would be the right move?
