It is claimed that the relationship between Solskjaer and De Gea was becoming a problem before Henderson was selected against Brighton last night.
What's more, the United boss intended to drop the Spanish goalkeeper as early as the game against West Brom last November.
When the player reacted unhappily to the intended selection, Solskjaer restored him to the side, according to the Manchester Evening News.
Henderson was also set to start against Chelsea on February 28, but De Gea expressed his dismay and Solskjaer once again opted to start him over the England stopper.
De Gea has not played since the Chelsea draw with the report stating that Henderson is now widely recognised as the club's new No.1.
It is also thought that a sizeable section of the United dressing room felt Henderson should have replaced De Gea in December.
Though Solskjaer stood by the 30-year-old until recently when he returned home to be at the birth of his first child.
Henderson has starred for United since replacing De Gea, keeping clean sheets against Crystal Palace, Manchester City, West Ham and AC Milan.
Speaking about his keepers following his side's 2-1 victory over Brighton, the United boss said: "With Dean and David's situation, I know it's something that will create headlines and [is] fish and chip wrapping paper in a little while.
"But I've got two great goalkeepers and it's about now finding games both will play [in].
"Obviously not the same game, of course.
"But both of them deserve to play more than what they do and it's a decision I have to make every time."
