How England national team could affect Manchester United negatively


EPL outfit Man United might be negatively affected by the activities and demands of the English senior national team on their players as some of the players could be forced to leave the club, a situation that could slow the progress of the team.

Dean Henderson has been hooked down at Old Trafford with a new contract after he returned from his loan sell with Sheffield United. He initially wanted to leave in search of a new start and a regulator playing time but the Red Devils wanted to keep him as they are keen on having two world-class goalkeepers in their team.

Now that Dean Henderson has been told by England manager Gareth Southgate to be a regular player at the club level if he must get the chance to mount the goal post for the national team, he will be forced to seek an exit from the club.

Dean Henderson is the second choice goalkeeper for manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, behind Spanish goalkeeper David De Gea and that is not enough to make him have more playing time and call up from the national team because of the competition for space.

Dean Henderson was linked with a move to Aston Villa over the summer and 90min claim a deal ‘was all but agreed’ before Manchester United convinced him to stay with a new and improved deal.

However, the time may be now for Dean Henderson to leave Man United and it might happen as soon as in the coming January winter transfer window as he already had a taste of what it is to be a regular at the national side after given the nod and debut against the Republic of Ireland on Thursday.

For this to continue, Dean Henderson must be a regular at his club, according to what Gareth Southgate reportedly told him.
