Dean Henderson

Juventus & Bayern Munich keen on Man United’s Dean Henderson – ESPN

As per a report from ESPN, both Juventus and Bayern Munich are expressing an interest in the signature of Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson.

Henderson, a 21-year-old shot-stopper, came up through the youth ranks of United, after joining the club in 2011 from Carlisle United.

However, after struggling to carve out any sort of place for himself in the first-team plans of the Red Devils, the English U21-international has been sent out on a series of loans over the last couple of campaigns.

And, after being named in the League one Team of the Year last summer following an impressive spell with Shrewsbury, Henderson’s performances this season have seen the youngster continue to showcase his immense potential.

He is currently plying his trade in the Championship with Sheffield United.

To this point in the campaign, Henderson has started all 30 of the Blades’ league outings, keeping 10 clean sheets, and playing a crucial role in the superb season being enjoyed by Chris Wilder’s men.

As things stand, United sit in 3rd in the Championship table, just 3 points off joint-league leaders Norwich and Leeds.

Henderson in-demand

And, as per the aforementioned report from ESPN this afternoon, Henderson’s performances at Bramall Lane have begun to pique the interest of some of European football’s biggest clubs.

Both Juventus and Bayern Munich are said to be keeping a close eye on the Englishman’s development. However, there is also strong interest from the Premier League, with Arsenal and Tottenham both tracking Henderson, too.

The 21-year-old penned a new contract at Old Trafford last summer, tying him to United until 2020. The Red Devils also maintain the option to extend this deal until 2021.

And ESPN add that, as things stand, the club’s board have no intention of parting ways with one of their most high-profile young talents, with Henderson viewed as a potential future no.1 by United’s academy staff.
