Report: Massive New Contract Could End Henderson's Time At Sheffield United

Report: Massive New Contract Could End Henderson's Time At Sheffield United

Dean Henderson has enjoyed a stellar debut season in the Premier League. On loan at Sheffield United for the second consecutive campaign, he was amongst the division's most consistent goalkeepers.

Many feel he should now be given a chance at his parent club Manchester United as a result. That argument is made all the more credible by David de Gea's lack of form over the past 18 months or so.

Of course, dropping their longtime number one won't be easy, especially when he rakes in a rumoured £350,000 per week.

It seems likely that Henderson will go out on loan once again next season in order to get guaranteed first team football. Manchester United will likely look to tie him down to a new contract in the coming weeks with the player's current deal set to expire in the summer of 2022.

However, that could reportedly scupper any return to Sheffield United.

The Sun are reporting that Henderson will be offered a new £100,000 per week contract by Manchester United. His parent club will also reportedly require any club to cover that full wage should the goalkeeper move there on loan.

That could prove an obstacle for Sheffield United, whose wage structure would generally only allow for a much lower wage. They had only covered a part of Henderson's £35,000 per week wages last season.

The report suggests that they are unhappy with Manchester United's latest demand. There would be no shortage of interested parties should they decide not to pursue a third loan deal.
