Chelsea and Paris Saint-Germain are both interested in signing Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson, according to reports in the UK.
The 22-year-old is currently on loan at Sheffield United and has the joint-most clean sheets, alongside Liverpool’s Alisson, in the Premier League this campaign.
Supporters on Twitter are generally behind a move for Henderson:
Great GK. Should buy him at any cost

He is a top lad(shown that this season), don't think united will let him go though.

@Chelsea please yes

I'd take Henderson at a good price though I doubt United would sell to us.

Never gonna happen. Sign O’Nana or bring back Bulka

Not bad at all, but he might be really expensive.

Wouldn't say no

No way they sell it to us

The big question mark would be over whether United would sanction a sale to one of their biggest rivals. The Blues have sold Juan Mata and Nemanja Matic to the Manchester club in the past so there shouldn’t be an issue in terms of the relationship between the two clubs.
In addition, Henderson is very keen to be a regular number one but there is very little chance of that happening at Old Trafford with David De Gea being the Red Devils’ first-choice keeper. The England Under 21 international would probably be open to the move.
It does seem likely that Kepa Arrizabalaga will be offloaded in the summer, and it will be interesting to see if Henderson is indeed Chelsea’s primary target to replace the Spaniard.
