Solskjaer wants Dean Henderson back at United

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is keen on having goalkeeper Dean Henderson, who is currently on loan with Sheffield United, back in his squad next season, according to The Athletic.

David De Gea has been the undisputed choice for the place between the posts for a very long time now and possibly United’s best performer overall in that that time as well. Sergio Romero has been an able stand-in option, playing mostly in cup games since his arrival from Sampdoria in 2015, but due to his age (32) and an occasional knee problem, he cannot challenge the Spain international properly.

Henderson, 10 years younger than Romero, has had a good loan spell with the Blades this term, helping them to a surprisingly good Premier League campaign so far. On the other hand, De Gea has had a few questionable moments recently, most notably the howler resulting in a goal conceded to Watford at Vicarage Road last month, and it seems Solskjaer doesn’t believe that having just a decent backup for 29-year-old is enough anymore; it seems the Norwegian wants someone to challenge him for the place in the starting XI.

Henderson’s loan at Bramall Lane expires at the end of the season.
