Sun: Dean Henderson 'expects to be No 1 at Manchester United next season'

Dean Henderson expects to be Manchester United's No1 goalkeeper next season with David de Gea's future at the club in doubt, according to the Sun.

United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is going to be without his first-choice goalkeeper for the rest of the month after de Gea travelled back to Spain for family reasons. It is believed the 30-year-old is returning home for the birth of his first child.

Henderson is set to replace the Spaniard as the No1 at Old Trafford for at least the next five games in his absence.

But the 23-year-old has his eyes set on a more permanent stay between the sticks for Man United.

Reports from the Daily Record claim that the club are considering selling both Henderson and de Gea in the summer - but Henderson's future at the club does look more promising.

After returning from a very successful loan spell at Sheffield United, Henderson had been left frustrated from the bench for the majority of the campaign.

However, he now has a chance to prove his patient waiting on the sidelines has been worth it and has been vocal before about his passion to become the first-choice at United.

Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham, looking for a long-term replacement for Hugo Lloris, were among the clubs looking at a loan deal for Henderson.

Solksjaer is a huge fan of the 23-year-old stopper and has no intentions of selling him and sees him as a big part of the club's future.

Henderson is still in the first year of his massive six-year deal at Old Trafford that he signed last August, earning him £100,000-per-week.

Meanwhile, de Gea is approaching the end of his lucrative deal with the Red Devils, where he earns a whopping £375,000-per-week.

Back in 2015, the Spanish international almost left Manchester United to join Real Madrid in a last-gasp deadline day move, but the transfer was not complete in time and the LaLiga club took their interest elsewhere.

De Gea has two years left on his deal at United, and the club will want to cash in on him rather than let him leave for free, with his currently valued at around £50million.
