Man United’s biggest goalkeeping situation to happen soon


It is feared that English Premier League outfit Man United will soon have a goalkeeping crisis with claims that Dean Henderson wants to leave on loan.

The England international returned from a loan spell from Sheffield United last season and he is not willing to remain on the bench for Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea. He could move again.

This development adds to the problem of keeping Argentina International goalkeeper Sergio Romero, who is also desperate to leave the club after falling down the pecking order to the third choice.

Efforts by Sergio Romero to leave Old Trafford last summer transfer window failed Everton made a last minute move for the goalkeeper but could not agree on a few with Man United.

Now Sergio Romero is reportedly training alone, away from the fans to give the hint that he would be leaving the club in the January winter transfer window.

However, two goalkeepers could depart Man United to leave David De Gea as their only viable option to bank with claims that Dean Henderson will leave the club on loan.

It is reported that Dean Henderson was contented with his role as a second choice but the fact that he has been told by England manager Gareth Southgate that he must play regularly to be able to challenge Everton’s Jordan Pickford for the No.1 spot at the European Championships.

The challenge given by the England national team boss will force Dean Henderson to consider a move elsewhere to be able to earn a call by the national team boss.

This situation will undoubtedly leave the Red Devils with just one established goalkeeper except manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will move for another goalkeeper in the coming January winter window to cover up.

While Dean Henderson can be compelled to stay at Old Trafford, there is no going back for the good Sergio Romero on his determination to leave the Red Devils.
