David De Gea’s Man United exit makes negotiations with Nottingham Forest for Dean Henderson complicated, talks remain ongoing

Negotiations between Manchester United and Nottingham Forest over Dean Henderson have been complicated following the departure of David De Gea, reports the Telegraph.

The Spaniard announced his departure from the Old Trafford club on Saturday after his contract expired.

Man United are closing in on a deal for Inter Milan goalkeeper Andre Onana as manager Erik ten Hag has found his ideal man in goal.

However, it appears they have a contingency plan in place if a move for the Cameroonian falls through.

Talks remain ongoing between the Red Devils and Forest over Henderson, but he is ready to end his 12-year association with the club this summer.

The 26-year-old spent last season on loan at the City Ground club, keeping six clean sheets in 18 Premier League games before picking up a thigh injury in January.

He is currently undergoing his rehabilitation at Man United’s training base as he nears full fitness, and he will not be joining the squad as they fly out to Norway for today’s friendly against Leeds United.

Henderson’s time at the club is expected to come to an end, but his exit depends on whether they successfully land Onana.

While the Inter star is tailor-made for Ten Hag’s playing pattern, Henderson is also comfortable with the ball at his feet and would not struggle to deliver the goods.

He is guaranteed the starting berth at Forest and it is clear to see why he is pushing for an exit, but nothing is guaranteed just yet, and Man United are in no rush to sanction a sale.
