Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could be about to deal the Blades a blow when it comes to Dean Henderson

Manchester United boss, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, is set to hand the Blades a blow when it comes to goalkeeper, Dean Henderson.

Henderson has been in fine form the Blades this term. He has kept seven clean sheets already and has continued the excellent performance level he showed last season. On the other hand, Manchester United stopper, David De Gea, has made a number of high-profile errors this season.

That form has led to some Manchester United fans to call on the club to bring Dean Henderson back. The goalkeeper is set to see out the season at Bramall Lane, however, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reportedly wants Henderson to challenge De Gea next season.

According to a report from the Mirror, the Red Devils boss is keen to see what Henderson can do. That means bringing him back to Old Trafford in the summer.


It would be a move that would surely end any hopes Sheffield United had of securing a permanent transfer for Henderson.

Never going to happen

Although many Blades fans would love it to happen, there’s a consensus amongst most supporters that landing Henderson on a permanent deal is nigh on impossible.

The wages and the transfer fee he’d command are two contributing factors, of course. However, there’s also the fact that the stopper harbours ambitions of playing for Man United. With that, his England chances will further increase. Therefore, it’s easy to see why Dean Henderson might well see his future at Old Trafford for now.

There’s little reason, too, why he can’t shift De Gea from the number one spot. The Spaniard is under more pressure than ever at the moment and the cracks have been appearing for some time now.

If Henderson can continue to impress this season and then have a good summer, he could well be the first-choice for Solskjaer come August 2020.
