Dean Henderson’s pivotal season – Aim to keep up Sheffield Utd up or hunt down Man Utd’s GK jersey

It's the million dollar question - will David De Gea be a Man United player come August? If he is, Dean Henderson will likely sign for Sheffield United on loan again. If De Gea leaves, they have a young keeper that is desperate for a chance to prove his worth at Old Trafford.

It’s the million dollar question – will David De Gea be a Man United player come August? If he is, Dean Henderson will likely sign for Sheffield United on loan again. If De Gea leaves, they have a young keeper that is desperate for a chance to prove his worth at Old Trafford.

The Blades manager Chris Wilder will be hoping he can get Henderson back for another season. After he brilliantly performed all of last season, keeping 21 clean sheets, while conceding just 41 goals.

Promoted teams will focus on building a strong side, with a spine they can trust to keep them up. Henderson provides that quality and stability in goal, which pumps confidence into his defenders knowing they’ve got a top ‘keeper playing behind them.

The highly-rated England international is confident in his abilities, feeling he deserves a run in the United side:

“It’s a tough one to say where. But do I think I should be playing at Manchester United now? Yes, I do. I think I am good enough and I would help the team a lot, in a positive way.”

With Solksjaer already signing Daniel James and being linked with moves for Max Aarons and Aaron Wan-Bissaka, it seems like he’s looking to sign young, ambitious players. Henderson falls into that category – will he get his long-awaited opportunity to nail down the number one spot at Old Trafford?
