Man Utd ready to offload £120,000-a-week stopper this summer

By | May 4, 2022

Manchester United are looking to offload shot-stopper Dean Henderson in the summer and are ready to continue paying a portion of the player’s salary, according to reports.

The goalkeeper has been on the periphery at the club ever since returning to Old Trafford in 2020 following a two-year loan stint at Sheffield United.

According to The Sun, the Red Devils have decided to shake up the goalkeeping options at the end of the term and, to assist the 25-year-old’s departure, will subsidise a chunk of his £120,000-a-week wages.

The report adds that the side could pay as much as half of Dean’s salary at a new club as the board look to land a new No.2 and No.3 this summer.

Leaving the Premier League giants won’t be easy for him who has been at the Theatre of Dreams since he joined the youth sector aged just 14.

Following a host of short-term stints in the lower leagues with the likes of Stockport County and Shrewsbury Town, Henderson was signed by Chris Wilder on loan at the Blades in 2018 and became a mainstay at the Bramall Lane outfit as the team returned to the Premier League.

After a productive season playing in the first tier with them, he was recalled by then-manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer two years ago with a view to challenging the Spain international for the number one spot.

However, he was unable to usurp David and has received little game time, making just three outings for the Red Devils’ senior team this season.
