Man United transfer news: 'Unhappy' international tipped for exit despite £31.2m agreement


Journalist Pete O’Rourke doesn’t think that Dean Henderson is happy at Manchester United – and reckons that he could look to leave Old Trafford in search of more regular game-time.

It’s been a testing season for the 24-year-old, who’s not played a minute in the Premier League after losing the gloves to David De Gea.

What’s the latest news with Henderson?

Having ended the 2020-2021 campaign as United’s first-choice goalkeeper, Henderson would have been hoping to begin this season as the Red Devils’ number one.

However, illness kept him out of their first three Premier League games, and De Gea’s outstanding form since then has given the England international little chance of winning his place back.

De Gea has shown his importance to United with brilliant performances against Norwich and Newcastle.

Henderson’s only outings this season came in the Carabao Cup defeat to West Ham and the Champions League tie with Young Boys when United had already secured top spot in the group.

Therefore, he wants to meet with Manchester United manager Ralf Rangnick about his lack of minutes on the pitch, and is regretting signing a new contract worth £31.2m in 2020.



What did O’Rourke say about Henderson?

He told GIVEMESPORT: “Dean Henderson is not happy at the club right now playing second fiddle to David De Gea, he could possibly move on in search of first-team football.”
