Henderson ‘on the verge’ of £100k-a-week ‘mega’ deal at Man Utd

Dean Henderson is closing in on a new contract at Man Utd but his immediate future remains unclear, according to reports.

, which has led to rumours that Ole Gunnar Solskjaer could give him a chance as Man Utd number one next season.

The 23-year-old has enjoyed two very impressive seasons at Sheffield United, but does not want to return to Old Trafford and play second fiddle to current first-choice David De Gea.



The Spaniard has made a number of high-profile mistakes in recent times, leading to calls for Henderson to replace him in goal for United but another loan deal seems more likely.

And now claims that Henderson is ‘on the verge of signing a mega new four-year Old Trafford deal worth £100,000 a week’ with Man Utd concerned about interest from the likes of Chelsea.

The deal represents a big leap of faith from the Red Devils with Henderson’s new contract taking the club’s spending on goalkeepers alone to ‘£575k a week’.

There was ‘no official approach’ from Chelsea despite the west London club’s interest in Henderson, while Man Utd will hold an option to extend his contract by an extra 12 months.

It’s now clear that Solskjaer wants Henderson to compete with De Gea at some point in the future for the number one spot. And De Gea recently defended his position, he said: “I am still the No1.

“I trust in myself. I have shown my qualities all the years. So I will just stay available for the manager.

“I’m always ready to play and try to help the team, as I have always done.”

Meanwhile, it had seemed like Sheffield United had given up on pursuing Henderson on another loan deal after they .

But a report in on Tuesday claimed that ‘Chris Wilder has also not ruled out the possibility of trying to re-sign Henderson on a temporary basis’.

Saha ‘gutted’ that Man Utd missed out on one summer signing

Louis Saha is “gutted” that Man Utd have failed to bring Edinson Cavani to Old Trafford this summer, while he recommends that the Premier League club sign Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly.

Cavani is currently in talks to sign for Benfica this summer after leaving Paris Saint-Germain when his contract expired at the end of the French season.

The Uruguayan has been heavily linked with a move to the likes of Man Utd and Leeds but the 33-year-old has confirmed he is in negotiations with “great team” Benfica.



And with time running out for other clubs to pursue a deal, former Red Devils striker Saha reckons Cavani would’ve been “the best fit” for Man Utd this summer.

“I think Manchester United are missing a trick by not signing Edinson Cavani this summer,” Saha told Football Index Podcast. “I’ve followed him for many years and I’m gutted there doesn’t seem to be an interest there.

“For me, Cavani would be the best fit this summer. Cavani has a great eye for goal and his leadership would be a great asset. He has qualities that are very difficult to find on the transfer market.”

On the centre-back positions, Saha added: “I’m a big fan of (Victor) Lindelof. He made a mistake against Sevilla, but otherwise I think he has been very consistent and a good partner for Harry Maguire this season.

“If Manchester United are to look at a new central defender, Koulibaly is the obvious choice. I’m a big fan of his as he’s so strong and composed. He’s also an aerial threat in the opposition box. The more players of his stature at Old Trafford, the better.”
