Dean Henderson is reportedly hoping to leave Manchester United on loan in January after failing to displace David De Gea in the starting XI.
As Henderson rose through the ranks of Man United, Henderson would have known the challenges ahead.
De Gea is one of the best goalkeepers in the world – and in Man United’s history – and remains in what are usually considered the prime years for a goalkeeper.
But, Henderson returned from Sheffield United to face a De Gea version that was out of sorts, after he earned his stripes as a loan goalkeeper.
Henderson had a chance to win because De Gea no longer seemed as strong as he once was.

Unfortunately, due to matters out of his control, Henderson has been unable to seize that opportunity. According to The Sun, he is now willing to entertain loan offers in the January transfer window.
According to the report, Henderson wants to leave Man United temporarily.
We would be speculating by naming clubs in the conversation. At this time, it is not clear if Henderson will be able to secure the Premier League no.1 spot in the second-half.
Man United and the player will have to wait to see how things unfold.
