Man Utd consider transfer plan for Dean Henderson that impacts Chelsea and Spurs

0

Manchester United are open to the idea of selling Dean Henderson amid intense speculation over his future.

However, they only have one club in mind and it is not Chelsea and Tottenham.

Frank Lampard is looking at the England Under-21 international as a possible replacement for Kepa Arrizabalaga.

The former Derby coach has not been impressed with the Spaniard since arriving as manager at Stamford Bridge.

Henderson is on a shortlist of names including Ajax’s Andre Onana and Burnley star Nick Pope.

As for Tottenham, Jose Mourinho is eyeing a long-term successor to Hugo Lloris – who turns 34 this year.

And according to Teamtalk, United are open to selling Henderson.

However, they will only entertain offers from Sheffield United, where he is on loan.

The 22-year-old has been in fine form at the Blades this year as Chris Wilder’s men make a push for an unlikely European spot.

They sit fifth in the Premier League and after the ruling over Manchester City on Friday, could be in line for a Champions League place.

It has led to calls for Jordan Pickford to be dropped as England No. 1 and Henderson take up his spot.

The stopper has enjoyed a fruitful spell at Bramall Lane, where he was also on loan last season.

In 2017, he won the Under-20 World Cup with England – though he largely played second fiddle to Freddie Woodman.

Blades boss Wilder revealed he would love to sign the youngster in the summer but admits a permanent move might be too much.

He said: “It won’t be on a permanent basis, definitely not. His future is at Manchester United, no doubt.

“If the opportunity came about that figure would be huge. If the opportunity comes about that we could get him back on loan next season we’d be all over that.”
