United boss Ole decision for Henderson affects Chelsea plan

Ole Gunner Solskjaer has to pay attention to the goalkeeper dilemma for United.

Manchester United had a good finish to the Premier League campaign. After spending most of the season outside the top 4 United finally made it to the 3rd position. But Ole has to ensure that the club builds on this momentum.

United could have done better in the FA Cup. But they lost to Chelsea. And that game was an example of De Gea’s mistakes costing United again. The Spaniard hasn’t had a very good season this year.

There have been 4-5 instances where De Gea’s efforts have cost United the game. Although he has pulled out some excellent saves for the club and still remains one of the best keepers in the world.

Ole has to decide between whether De Gea is good enough for United.

Dean Henderson on the other hand has had a brilliant season with Sheffield United. Sheffield United was in contention for Europa League qualification but they slipped down to the 9th position. Although it’s still pretty impressive considering they just gained promotion to the Premier League.

And Dean Henderson played a very crucial role in Sheffield’s journey. The keeper has 14 clean sheets this season jut 1 less than Nick Pope who has won the Golden Glove alongside Alisson.

Following Henderson’s impressive performance many United fans are calling for Henderson to take over at United. Ole has a decision on his hands to choose between Henderson and De Gea.

Chelsea looking for Henderson but United hold on him

Chelsea has some things to fix with their lineup for the next season. But the biggest issue for Chelsea is their goalkeeper. Kepa Arrizabalaga has been very inconsistent for the club.

He has the 2nd worst save percentage in the Premier League. In the last two games for the club, Lampard decided to go with Willy Caballero. That can provide you with an idea of how bad the situation is with Kepa.

All of a sudden everyone has lost faith in his abilities. And the Blues are looking for a new stopper. According to the Express, Chelsea is plotting a bid for Dean Henderson. An amount of £55 million is being discussed.

But United probably won’t sell to a rival club. Also Ole wants Henderson to be at the club for the future. But as of now, United are considering another loan spell for Henderson. It would be best for his development.

Another year with the Blades is a very real possibility. According to The Sun, United are planning a bid for Leicester City’s Kasper Schmeichel. Schmeichel has had a good season with Leicester City and has 13 clean sheets to his name.

Romero has had links to leaving United. He is frustrated with sitting on the sidelines and thinks that he has the potential to be the first choice for some other team. Everton and Leeds are showing interest in him.

However, this is all more of hearsay and United could still decide otherwise in Henderson’s case. There should be a decision within the next month about the goalkeeper’s future
