Despite having loaned out Dean Henderson in every campaign since making the Manchester United senior team in 2016, the Red Devils are still bullish about the keeper’s future and reportedly have no plans to sell him this summer.

Henderson, who turned 23-years-old last month, has been on loan at newly-promoted Sheffield United since 2018. The England native was a key figure in the club’s promotion to the Premier League last season and has been its first-team keeper in the club’s impressive run in England’s top flight this season.

Despite still having Spanish keeper David de Gea under contract and no clear role for Henderson in the immediate future, the team still isn’t ready to sell him for a profit.

Henderson, whose current market value is estimated at $16 million, could head out on loan again next season. The Red Devils still appear to think that his future is between the sticks at Old Trafford, and they want to keep him around.

Juventus and Chelsea have been two of the clubs to reportedly express interest in Henderson this winter, but it appears that if Manchester United has its way, they won’t be able to touch their young star keeper unless they’re happy with a loan move.
