Man Utd player's position under threat with PSG star set to rival him in shock transfer

Man Utd player's position under threat with PSG star set to rival him in shock transfer

A Man Utd player's position could be under threat with reports of a transfer from PSG.

Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson could soon see his position at Nottingham Forest under threat following news of a shock potential transfer involving PSG's Keylor Navas.

Henderson signed on loan at the City Ground at the beginning of the season, keen to play first team football at Premier League level.

And the 25-year-old has done just that, having started every game for Steve Cooper's side before the World Cup break.

But he missed the December 27 clash against United through injury - although he would have been ineligible to play in any case - before returning for Forest's 1-1 draw against Chelsea on January 1.

Injury struck again, however, before last weekend's trip to Bournemouth, and Cooper has confirmed the goalkeeper is set for another spell on the sidelines.

Henderson will miss between four to five weeks, and Forest, at that point, had not ruled out signing a shot-stopper during January.

Their search, it appears, has taken them to one of the top goalkeepers in world football.

Forest interested in signing Navas

According to French outlet L'Equipe, Navas has agreed to join Forest on loan this month following the injury to Henderson - but the deal needs PSG's approval.

It is believed that the Costa Rica star wants to experience the Premier League, having agreed to join United in 2015 from Real Madrid.

That was in an effective swap deal, with David de Gea going the other way, but a supposed broken fax machine ultimately meant the move could not be completed in time.

Now, over seven years on, the 36-year-old looks to be finally set to play in the top flight of English football.

That could affect Henderson's position at Forest upon his return, with Navas having been operating at a world class level for a number of seasons. Unfortunately for the Costa Rican, another world class operator in Gianluigi Donnarumma is ahead of him in the PSG pecking order.

Navas, therefore, will hope to boost Forest in their pursuit of moving further away from the relegation zone - and he might just keep the number one shirt ahead of United loanee Henderson for the remainder of the season, if his move becomes official.
