There are reports that David De Gea might consider his future at Manchester United following the birth of his first child.
While United is being linked with a series of shot-stoppers, they might think otherwise going by the records being placed by second-choice keeper Dean Henderson.
De Gea has been absent for United's last two Premier League games and Henderson has impressed, keeping back-to-back clean sheets as he presents his case to displace the Spaniard as the club’s first-choice goalkeeper.
United have kept five clean sheets in their last six games, their best run since 2018, and Henderson has been in goal for four of those clean sheets.
The 23-year-old has been reduced to manning goal in cup games for the club but according to former United keeper Ben Forster, the England international might make the spot his own soon.
“Dean is a proper goalkeeper. You ask anybody in football nowadays that has watched him play and you can just see that he has got it. He has got the ability. The main thing with playing for a team like Manchester United is having the mentality. When I was at Manchester United all those years ago, I felt like I had the ability, but I definitely didn't have the mentality,” Forster told Sky Sports.
Dean Henderson made six saves against Man City, the joint most he’s made in a Premier League game.— Squawka Football (@Squawka) March 7, 2021
