Dean Henderson’s Manchester United career “hangs in the balance” after being dropped for last night’s game against Fulham, according to Sky Sports.
The news channel claim the 24-year-old’s omission from the starting lineup was an indication that his future lies away from Old Trafford. Fans are very sceptical about the report, with many disputing the fact that being left out for one match should lead to speculation about him leaving:
Would be silly getting rid of him

or De Gea is getting his last couple of games before he leaves in the summer to be with his family back in Spain ……

Thought he stunk the place out against us, his positioning for Salah’s goal was shocking.

He’s not playing in a nothing game and now he’s leaving the club. Anything to talk about United though eh

A lot will depend on who starts the Europa League final next week. If David De Gea also plays in the final league game of the season against Wolves and then versus Villarreal, there will be more rumours regarding Henderson.
Manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has given the England international a decent run in the side and, it must be said, that he hasn’t really convinced, with his poor performance in the 4-2 defeat against Liverpool not the only match where he hasn’t impressed supporters.
