Man Utd insiders drop David De Gea confession – with Dean Henderson’s stance revealed – Express

Manchester United goalkeeper De Gea could leave at the end of the season, with the Spain international having just one year of his contract remaining.

The shot-stopper is wanted by Ligue 1 giants PSG, who believe he has the potential to be the club’s No 1 once Gianluigi Buffon departs.

Manchester United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has insisted he wants to keep De Gea, saying: “The club and David are in dialogue. Hopefully they’ll agree.

“It’s out of my hands, but I’m sure we’ll do what we can.”

And the Manchester Evening News say De Gea sources have said he will take time to reflect on his future.

The United star, it seems, is keen not to be rushed into any possible decision.

De Gea’s form has tailed off worryingly in recent times, with the United goalkeeper making costly errors against the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Wolves.

The 28-year-old is a popular figure with the Red Devils and has been ever since his arrival in 2011.

Yet while De Gea could leave United, the MEN say that Dean Henderson is hopeful he can replace him.

The goalkeeper has flourished on loan at Sheffield United.

And, as things stand, he is likely to spend next season in the Premier League with the Brammal Lane outfit.

Henderson is keen to play first-team football next season.

But, if De Gea leaves United, he may become their No 1 with the youngster then rotating with Sergio Romero.

Sheffield United boss Chris Wilder, meanwhile, has been left impressed by Henderson’s form this season.

“Dean has been first-class for us,” he said recently.

“Everyone looks at what happened at Villa, not just at Dean but the team in general, how would he and we react?

“The answer is what Dean has produced since and what the players have found since then too. I’m not surprised he’s been talking about, but there are some unbelievable goalkeepers in front of him that he’s got to get past.

“But at the moment he is doing all he can. He is playing extremely well and playing a part in what have been consistently good team performances.

“He’s up there with the best in the division, but Leeds signed a boy from Real Madrid and Sam Johnstone still gives me sleepless nights.

“But Dean is right up there and last season he was certainly the best in League One and I wouldn’t be surprised if he wasn’t in contention for accolades come the end of the season.

“Dean wants to play football and I congratulate him for his attitude, it’s changed in recent years and he wants to get his hands dirty, just like Kieran Dowell.”
