Last month, the Red Devils manager sealed a deal for the Internazionale goalkeeper, and the Cameroon international has started all three of his new side’s Premier League games this season. However, various alternatives have been made. Ten Hag remains eager to add a second new goalkeeper to his squad before the transfer deadline on Friday, while Dean Henderson’s future at Old Trafford remains uncertain.
The England international spent last season on loan at Premier League opponents Nottingham Forest, where he made just 20 appearances due to injury. Forest were expected to revive their interest in Henderson and pursue a permanent move for the 26-year-old, but a recent report suggests they may be beaten to the punch by a Premier League opponent after agreeing an initial £20 million agreement with United.
Fabrizio Romano, a journalist, has revealed that Henderson will have a physical with the Eagles on Sunday and that United are making headway on a deal for Fenerbache goalie Altay Bayindir as they attempt to replace the former Sheffield United loanee.
“Dean Henderson to Crystal Palace, here we go!” he tweeted. The agreement is in place, and the medical will be performed today – a permanent move from Manchester United. United will receive a £20 million package, including add-ons. A sell-on clause will also be included in the agreement. Bayindir is on his way to Manchester United.”
Following Shaw’s injury, United has been connected with a Chelsea defender.
Manchester United are allegedly considering three left-backs to replace injured Luke Shaw.
The England defender is poised to miss time after suffering a muscle injury, leaving Erik ten Hag without a natural left-back in his senior ranks. Diogo Dalot began on the left side of Manchester United’s defense against Nottingham Forest on Saturday, but The Telegraph reports that the Red Devils are considering transfers for three players to remedy the issue.
According to the source, United have made ‘initial queries’ about a loan deal for Chelsea left-back Marc Cucurella, as well as former Blues defender Marcos Alonso and Tottenham Hotspur’s Spain international Sergio Reguilon.
