Manchester United implemented a transfer strategy, that raised quite a few eyebrows out there, in the last summer transfer window.
First of all, Dean Henderson returned from his two-year loan spell at Sheffield United, where the Englishman had enjoyed a very successful time, and signed him to a new contract until June 2025. Then, they signed Alex Telles and Edinson Cavani on the deadline day, bringing in challengers for the berths respectively occupied by Luke Shaw and Anthony Martial.
While Shaw is showing signs of improvement in the presence of Telles, Martial’s ship has not sailed in the direction that the management would have anticipated following the arrival of ‘El Matador’.
On the other hand, Henderson has continued to replicate his Sheffield United form when given the chance, keeping 7 clean sheets and conceding 9 goals from 12 appearances across all competitions. Unfortunately, they have been few and far between.

According to a report from Manchester Evening News, Henderson has grown ‘frustrated’ with his lack of playing time. Consequently, the 23-year-old shot-stopper could be looking to move on to pastures new next summer.
The story believes that Tottenham Hotspur and West Ham United are interested in the Manchester United academy graduate and could make a concrete move in the upcoming summer, with Chelsea also monitoring the situation.

It has been told that Tottenham could offload Hugo Lloris next summer, while another London club in West Ham United, currently battling for the European spots, will see Lukasz Fabianski’s contract run out in four months.
The Hammers recently signed Jesse Lingard on loan from Manchester United. And the midfielder’s scintillating start to his life at the London Stadium has spurred the chances of him joining them permanently next season. And they could be looking to repeat that trick in the summer.
As for Henderson, chances might increase through the course of this season. But he will have to keep impressing Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he has done for most of this campaign, if he wants to be the first-choice. David de Gea, has not made that volume of mistakes he made in the last two campaigns. So it is a good thing for the Red Devils overall to have to good keepers competing for one spot.
Although it has been stated that Henderson might cost around £40 million in today’s market, it will be United’s final call on whether they would let their starlet, who is under contract for the next four years, leave or not.
