Manchester United have been linked with a whole host of players this summer but it appears that most of their intended sagas have hit one kind of dead end or the other. It certainly seems that United as a club may have ceased carrying the sort of allure that they have traditionally commanded.

However, there is one player who is still passionate about joining Manchester United.

Dean Henderson is a United player who is presently loaned out to Sheffield United. The young goalkeeper was impeccable during his loan spell in the Championship last campaign, aiding the side to Premier League promotion for the upcoming campaign. There have been a lot of murmurs as to where his future lies.

However, he has revealed to Mail where his heart lies: “I‘d give my right leg to play for that football club. That has been my dream since I was a little boy, being a fan. I’m working hard in the background and waiting for any little opportunity that comes. If it does, I’ll take it for the next 10-15 years.”

The possibility of him joining United this summer certainly lingers on how the situation around David De Gea develops. The Red Devils have quite a conundrum on their hands. The Spanish goalkeeper has only a year left on his contract and it seems unlikely that he will sign a new deal with the club.

This leaves them with the choice of either selling De Gea this window and lapping up the profits or keep him for the rest of the season and release him for free.

If Sheffield do secure Henderson for another season’s loan, then it seems favorable for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and company to attain the young keeper next season after a year of top-tier experience. It will be interesting to see where De Gea will be at that point.
