Manchester United and Nottingham Forest are still in talks over a deal for English goalkeeper Dean Henderson, according to The Athletic.
Having spent last season on loan with the Tricky Trees, where he was an undisputed starter, Henderson has been linked with a permanent switch this summer.
United and Forest agree that the deal should be an initial loan plus an obligation to buy, but the number of games needed to trigger the obligation is currently a bone of contention.
Forest want Henderson to have played up to 30 games before they are obliged to sign him, but United are insisting on a much lower range of two to five games.
The 26-year-old is currently recovering from a thigh problem which saw him miss the final four months of action last season.
On that basis, it is understandable why Forest would want some guarantee about his fitness before acquiring his services on a long-term basis.
With Forest in dire need of a new goalkeeper since letting Keylor Navas return to parent club Paris Saint-Germain, they are expected to get a deal for Henderson over the line.
Henderson would be the latest player to leave Old Trafford for this summer off the back of Anthony Elanga’s move earlier this week.
On the incoming front, United are drawing increasingly closer to completing a deal for Danish striker Rasmus Hojlund.
The Red Devils have sent an initial offer worth up to €60 million, but Atalanta are holding out for at least €70m.
However, both parties continue to negotiate, and an agreement is on the horizon.
