Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson has signed a new six year contract worth up to £120,000 a week, after a terrific season on-loan at Sheffield United. This comes as welcome news for all United fans in the absence of transfers, with the extension of Henderson and Paul Pogba as priorities for the summer.
More official news below on Deano:
The 23-year-old has been in training at Carrington ahead of his call-up to the England squad on Tuesday and United have taken the opportunity to accelerate talks over a new long-term deal.
They wanted to reward his progress after a stand-out season on loan at Sheffield United and tie him down to the club until June 2025 with the option for a further year.
Henderson said: ‘The pathway that I have been on for the past five years has been fantastic for my development and the invaluable loan period at Sheffield United has been part of that.”
It’s also being reported that Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer would like Henderson to compete with David de Gea for the number one position, but still has to discuss what opportunities he can give the young goalkeeper.
Good business tying down Henderson, now it’s time to resign the biggest star of the lot, Paul Pogba.
Get it done Woodward!
