Solskjaer to make brutal Man Utd goalkeeper decision ahead of transfer window

Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will reportedly allow either David de Gea and Dean Henderson to leave the club this summer.

Both goalkeepers are vying for the No. 1 spot at Old Trafford with De Gea currently favoured by Solskjaer.

Henderson has featured in cup competitions having impressed on loan at Sheffield United last season.

The 23-year-old returned to the Theatre of Dreams in the hope of displacing De Gea permanently though has so far been unable to.

And with both goalkeepers desperate to play regular football, The Sun report that United will ditch one of the two in the summer.

It’s claimed that Solskjaer has decided to end the scrap between the two with one departing, either on loan or in a permanent transfer.

Solskjaer is reportedly already looking for a new second-choice goalkeeper, who would be happy playing a handful of games a season.

The Sun add that the likely scenario would see Henderson depart following a meeting with Solskjaer, where he was told one keeper will leave.

It comes despite the boss recently saying that Henderson does have a chance of usurping De Gea to become No. 1.

“Of course Dean is in with a shout," said the Norwegian after Henderson impressed in Europa League victory over Real Sociedad.

"We pick a team on Saturday and Dean was very solid, good kicking and he could or should have had an assist for Marcus [Rashford], which is another thing we worked on.
