“Henderson himself wants to play first-team football, he doesn’t want to come back to Old Trafford as a number two to David de Gea,” he explained. “However, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is unwilling to make Henderson his first-choice.
“It’s now up to Henderson to decide whether he wants to sign that contract and take his chances, although it’s being discussed that he would be open to returning to United as their number-one for pre-season, and if he’s not good enough, he’ll be happy to fight it out with De Gea.
“This entire situation is complicated by Manchester United’s interest in Peter Schmeichel’s son, Kasper, of Leicester City. Solskjear sees him as a ready-made number-one for United, and he could easily allow Henderson to go on loan, with Schmeichel a credible competitor to De Gea as number one for the jersey at United.
“But with Henderson, it would a much cheaper [option], and in Henderson’s case a younger case of bringing in a player who has proven himself out at Sheffield United.”
