Manchester United ‘name asking price’ for wantaway man amid Newcastle interest

Dean Henderson has attracted Premier League interest this season after struggling to secure a place in Manchester United’s starting line-up.

Dean Henderson looked set to overtake David De Gea as Manchester United’s number one at the start of the season, with the Spaniard struggling for form for a majority of the 2020/21 campaign.

However, contracting Covid in the summer delayed his start to the season, and saw the opportunity slip away very quickly. Now Henderson finds himself playing second fiddle to De Gea once again.

With the back-up goalkeeper yet to make a league appearance this season, it looks increasingly likely that he will finally depart Old Trafford and United have reportedly named their price.

According to the Daily Star, the Red Devils have slapped a £40 million price tag on Henderson.

The goalkeeper signed a new five-year deal with the Red Devils in 2020 after an impressive two-year loan spell with Sheffield United and so still has a significant amount of his current contract remaining.

Henderson joined United’s academy in 2011 and has only made a handful of senior appearances since.

With De Gea’s form dramatically improving this season, Newcastle United are reportedly one team that are looking to take advantage of Henderson’s current situation.

The Magpies are eager to bolster their squad this summer, with their Premier League status looking safe ahead of next season.

They have been linked with a move for Henderson, but it is unclear whether they would put off by the £40m price tag.

The United man is young for a goalkeeper and could become a real bargain if he can live up to the expectations placed on him following his time with the Blades.
