Tottenham Hotspur and Borussia Dortmund are keeping tabs on Dean Henderson, who is unhappy with his current role at Manchester United.
A recent report from Sky Sports sheds light on the future of Dean Henderson. The Manchester United youngster is facing an uncertain future at Old Trafford as he is unhappy with his current role at the club. Although the goalkeeper is in favour of remaining in Manchester, he is frustrated with the lack of playing opportunities.
It has put Tottenham Hotspur on red alert, as the north London giants hope to find a long-term replacement for Hugo Lloris. The veteran goalkeeper himself is facing an uncertain future at the club and might fancy a move to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer, to reunite with former boss Mauricio Pochettino.
Lloris’ performances have also taken a noticeable dip in the past few years, so Jose Mourinho will be keen on signing a new goalkeeper this summer. However, they are set to face stiff competition from Borussia Dortmund.
The Black and Yellows are chasing a new goalkeeper this summer as they look to move on from Roman Burki. Although the Swiss has done a good job at Westfalenstadion, there has been a lack of consistency in his performances. In addition, second choice ‘keeper Marwin Hitz is yet to really convince the fans, in terms of reliability.
The 33-year-old’s contract in Dortmund also expires at the end of the campaign, ideally paving the way for Henderson to come in and compete with Burki. He could also play alongside his compatriot Jude Bellingham and potentially, Jadon Sancho, although Manchester United are determined to sign him in the summer.
Speaking of the Red Devils, they have had a bit of a dilemma in the goalkeeping department. Although the club is well aware of Henderson’s talents, it has become seemingly difficult for them to embrace the Englishman, at the expense of David de Gea, who has undeniable quality despite his occasional lack of consistency.
However, it won’t be surprising to see if Manchester United does offload de Gea in the near future, as the Spaniard’s staggering wages of almost £400k a week does, to an extent, cripple the club’s financial powers in the market. And in Henderson, they have a young talent, who is more than ready to become the next goalkeeping icon at Old Trafford – as covered in our earlier blog.
It is likely going to be difficult finding the right suitor for de Gea this summer, though, particularly due to his wage demands. So it will be interesting to see whether the Spaniard’s prolonged stay at Old Trafford forces Manchester United to find a loan deal either to Borussia Dortmund or Tottenham Hotspur next season.
