Man Utd outcast Dean Henderson could be sold to top six rivals as 'contact made' over permanent transfer
| Last updated
Manchester United manager Erik ten Hag is weighing up his options over Dean Henderson as the club continues to hold contract negotiations with David de Gea.
De Gea, 32, is out of contract this summer and United have opted not to trigger a one-year extension in his deal while they continue talks with the Spaniard.
De Gea currently earns around £375,000 per week at Old Trafford and United want him to take a pay cut to remain at the club, with Ten Hag keen to keep the player.
According to The Athletic, De Gea has turned down United's first offer of a new contract but negotiations are expected to end with a positive outcome.
With De Gea set to remain as No 1, Henderson may look to leave United in the summer transfer window.
The 26-year-old has spent the season on loan at Nottingham Forest after becoming frustrated at his lack of game time at Old Trafford.
In August, Henderson gave a fiery interview with talkSPORT in which he described being benched last season as 'criminal' and claimed he had received 'false promises' over becoming the No 1 goalkeeper at United.
Will Henderson return to Man Utd?
Ten Hag has not ruled out playing Henderson in pre-season but United may look to cash in on the player this summer.
According to The Athletic, Tottenham are interested in signing the 26-year-old, while they are also targeting Brentford's David Raya – who has himself been linked with a move to United.
Nottingham Forest are believed to be keen to sign Henderson on a permanent deal and the report claims that two clubs have already made contact with United over a summer transfer.
Speaking back in December, Ten Hag said United would wait to make a decision over Henderson, presumably after De Gea's contract situation has been resolved.
"During the season, when the season is coming to an end, we will take a decision and that depends on a lot of factors. He is playing really well at Nottingham Forest," said Ten Hag.
