De Gea hailed by Henderson but warns him for No. 1 spot battle

Dean Henderson has cautioned David de Gea he is aiming for his Manchester United place. The 23-year-old goalkeeper will retreat to Old Trafford after an exceptional loan spell at Sheffield United, determined to take the 1st spot off the Spaniard.

Academy alumnus Henderson recently signed a new six-year contract last month among connections to Chelsea. Thus, making it obvious he sees himself at Old Trafford for the long term.

“I’ll be moving back in the first day of pre-season and sweating my b******s off to get in that starting line-up because it’s something I’ve constantly required and I’m so close now. I have tremendous respect for David. He has been a magnificent goalkeeper for many years.

He’s been remarkable and that’s something I strive to be, to have a profession like his at the club. It’s down to me but I’m beneath no fantasies that I’m going to develop just sat on the bench. I need that game-time.” said Henderson.

Unfortunately, De Gea’s form has come into inquest over the last two seasons, while Henderson prospered with the Blades. It continues to be seen which goalkeeper Ole will choose as his No.1 for the start of the new campaign.

“I know what difficulties are advancing and I’m well up for it. I want to represent England and I want to play for Manchester United and so I’m just going to keep fighting hard every single day, defeating my little challenges, my little goals, and I’m sure one day I’ll get to where I want to be.” added the English goalkeeper.

Henderson has sharpened his competence under Chris Wilder at Sheffield and acclaimed the Manager of the Year’s influence on his improvement. He had performed in 36 matches this season. Thus, playing a total of 3240 minutes.

Furthermore, Henderson concedes a sum of 0.89 goals for every 90 minutes that he’s on the ground. His Clean Sheets proportion is at 36%. Numerically, Dean Henderson has kept a Clean Sheet in 13 matches out of the 36 that he’s played in.

On the other hand, David de Gea performed in 38 matches this season. Thus, playing a sum of 3420 minutes. De Gea concedes an aggregate of 0.84 goals for every 90 minutes that he’s on the ground. His Clean Sheets proportion is currently at 34%. That justifies that David de Gea has kept a Clean Sheet in 13 matches out of the 38 that he’s played in.

Solskjaer meanwhile was pleased that Dean has agreed to confirm a long-term deal with Manchester United. Furthermore, he was full of praises for the English goalkeeper.

Ole added “We are in a stalwart space in the goalkeeping division and that gives us the contest for positions that we are watching for in the team. Dean is another outstanding illustration of the type of player who has developed through the Academy. He had another magnificent season at Sheffield United, where he merited a lot of knowledge and developed both as a player and a person.”

“He truly apprehends what it means to be at Manchester United, We are all looking ahead to working with Dean, and resuming to evolve his talent He is a fantastic young keeper with the attitude and work-rate to keep improving every day,” said Ole.

Manchester United have emerged as frontrunners in the race to sign Ajax midfielder Donny Van de Beek.

Van de Beek, 23, starred in the Ajax team that reached the Champions League semi-finals in the 2018/19 season and is one of Europe’s most talented young midfielders.

Van de Beek made six appearances in the defensive midfield role for Ajax in the 2019/20 season and has the ability to operate as Solskjaer’s anchorman ahead of Nemanja Matic.

However, Matic offers a more experi…
