Manchester United are prepared to sell second-choice goalkeeper Dean Henderson for a fee of $38m.
The 26-year-old spent last season out on loan at Premier League side Nottingham Forest and according to the Manchester Evening News’ Samuel Luckhurst, Forest are preparing to match United’s evaluation for the England international.
Man United looking to buy two goalkeepers
The news may come as some surprise to Forest fans after Henderson was ruled out for the whole of the second half of last season with a thigh injury.
Henderson is thought to be keen on the move to pursue first-team football in the knowledge that United are set to sign two new shot-stoppers this summer after submitting an opening bid for future number-one Andre Onana earlier this week with David De Gea‘s Old Trafford future still remaining unclear.
Henderson was replaced in goal last season by former Real Madrid keeper Keylor Navas, who performed admirably after joining the Tricky Trees in January. However, the 37-year-old has now returned to his parent club Paris Saint-Germain- forcing Forest’s hand in going back into the market for a new number one this summer.
