Bayern Munich and Juventus interested in signing keeper Dean Henderson – report

by Leo Nieboer

Manchester United youngster Dean Henderson has caught the eye of Bayern Munich and Juventus with a series of impressive performances on loan at Championship side Sheffield United this season, according to reports.

The 21-year-old, who joined the club as a youngster in 2011, enjoyed a successful loan spell at League One side Shrewsbury Town last season.

He joined Sheffield United over the summer and has played a key role in the push for promotion at Bramall Lane, starting every single Championship game this season.

And according to ESPN‘s Rob Dawson, the performances of Henderson have alerted Bayern and Juventus – both moving past the days of Manuel Neuer and Gianluigi Buffon respectively – as well as Arsenal and Tottenham. Think he will be leaving United? Check out the best odds on sites like Bet365.

Henderson was handed a new two-year deal by Man United over the summer following a superb season at Shrewsbury during which he was named in the League One team of the year and reached the play-off final.

The youngster has claimed ten clean sheets in 30 games at Sheffield this season, including three in his last five games. He finds himself playing for a team challenging Leeds United and Norwich City for automatic promotion, with several potential suitors looking at him very closely indeed.

For Henderson, it’s an unfortunate situation because at United he is never going to become first-choice until David de Gea is no longer at the club. The same goes for Sergio Romero. When you’ve got the world’s best goalkeeper, it is impossible for others to try and usurp him.

That being said, he’s doing superb out on loan and playing a good level of football so it should come as no surprise to see there are other clubs who are interested in him and he would deserve a move to either of these major clubs for sure.
