Dean Henderson wants to be the first-choice goalkeeper for Manchester United next season, via the Manchester Evening News.
Henderson is enjoying a successful spell on loan at newly-promoted Sheffield United. The Blades are currently in 7th, only two points behind Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s United, with a game in hand. Chris Wilder’s side are defying all expectations and are currently in the race for European football (Premier League).
Henderson’s teammate Billy Sharp revealed the youngster has admitted he wants to return to Old Trafford.
Sharp told the Manchester Evening News “he wants to come back. He wants to play for Man United, obviously – he’s not going to lie – but if he can’t do that he wants to play for Sheffield United.”
The 22-year-old has made 27 appearances for Sheffield in the Premier League this season, keeping 10 clean sheets and only conceding 22 goals. Henderson’s market value is estimated at £16.2m (Transfermarkt).
By contrast, United’s number one David de Gea has played in 29 games for the Red Devils in the English top-flight, saving 8 clean sheets and conceding 30 goals (Transfermarkt).
A number of fans have also been calling for the Manchester United academy graduate to be named as the first-choice for Gareth Southgate’s Euro 2020 squad this summer.
