Manchester United fans could sigh of relief after one of the club’s future goalkeepers, Dean Henderson agreed to extend his contract at Old Trafford.
It can be said that this agreement is very important for the Red Devils, because after all David De Gea, who is still a mainstay, has entered his old age. If the Spaniard is no longer reliable, they won’t have to bother looking for a quality replacement.
For information, the last two seasons Dean Henderson did not wear a Manchester United shirt. The 23-year-old goalkeeper was loaned to Sheffield United during this period.
Who would have thought, along with Sheffeld United, he performed brilliantly, even this season he collected 13 Cleansheets from 36 appearances. Thanks to this, Sheffield United have become one of the teams with the least conceded numbers in the Premier League.
However, the match against Norwich in the last Premier League matchdays last season was Dean Henderson’s last game with The Blades. His loan period is over and now he must return to Old Trafford.
There was concern among the Red Devils fans regarding the fate of Dean Henderson. Reportedly he is interested in Chelsea, while on the one hand the player is said to be interested in the offer.
But now, MU fans can breathe a sigh of relief, the player officially extended his contract at Old Trafford until 2025.
“United’s goalkeeping department is amazing; there are three top goalkeepers who have achieved so much in this game and I look forward to working with the team.”
“The trust that the coach and the club have shown in me with this contract means a lot, and I will continue my progress as a goalkeeper,” said Henderson quoted from the club’s official website.
With regard to this new contract agreement, coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admits that he is very happy, especially considering the fact that the goalkeeper is a graduate of the Red Devils academy.
“Dean is one great example of a player who comes from the academy and understands what it means to be a Manchester United player,” said the tactician.
