Manchester United ‘expecting’ £30m transfer windfall this summer in massive boost to Erik ten Hag

The Red Devils are set for some big funds soon


Manchester United are expecting to net as much as £30m for goalkeeper Dean Henderson this summer in what could be a crucial funds boost for Erik ten Hag and his transfer plans ahead of the new season.

The Red Devils are in an ongoing takeover battle, with the Glazers looking to receive a massive fee for the club amid interest from Qatar, but no firm decision over a sale has been made.

As a result, finances are tight and Ten Hag’s side have already shelled out £55m for Mason Mount, who has signed a five year deal at Old Trafford after arriving from Chelsea.

There are plans to sign two goalkeepers too following the shock departure of David de Gea when his contract expired at the end of June, despite prior beliefs that it would be extended.

A £39m bid for Inter Milan shot-stopper Andre Onana has already been turned down, with the San Siro side looking for closer to £55m to part ways with the former Ajax man, who would be open to reuniting with former boss Erik ten Hag at Old Trafford.

Another area that they are looking to strengthen is in central defence, where Harry Maguire is expected to depart, while a right-back could also be on the cards if enough departures can be agreed.

To that end, the Red Devils have been handed a major boost as it has emerged that Nottingham Forest are willing to pay as much as £30m for goalkeeper Henderson, who spent last season on loan at the City Ground.

As per the Manchester Evening News, ‘Henderson was informed of Forest’s intention to buy him after they secured their Premier League survival’ in May, despite having missed the second part of the season with a serious injury.

The additional funds will come as a massive boost to United in their transfer plans, and they will be hoping that his departure is the first of several, with the likes of Anthony Elanga, Fred and Maguire all free to leave in a bid to free up further funds this summer.
