Dean Henderson expects to be Man Utd No1 next season with £50m-rated David de Gea facing uncertain future

DEAN HENDERSON expects to be Manchester United No1 next season – with David De Gea facing an uncertain future at the club.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is set to be without his first-choice goalkeeper for the rest of the month after he went back to Spain for personal reasons – believed to be the birth of his first child.

The ex-Atletico Madrid ace will be missing for at least five games, and Henderson will now get an extended run in the side.

The 23-year-old feels ready to take over in goal full-time, with United now considering selling De Gea in the summer.

Henderson was frustrated with sitting on the bench for the first eight-months of the campaign, and there were rumours he was open to leaving.

The former Sheffield United ace has been eyed by Borussia Dortmund and Tottenham, who are looking for a long-term replacement for Hugo Lloris.

But United have NO intentions of selling one of their prized academy products, with Solskjaer a huge fan of his talents.

He only signed a new six-year deal last August, earning around £100,000-a-week, which SunSport exclusively revealed.

Meanwhile, De Gea turns 31 this year and United are running out of time to cash-in as he plays in his tenth season in Manchester.

The Spaniard is the highest earning player at the club, taking home a staggering Premier League high £375,000-a-week wage.

He has been close to quitting Old Trafford in the past, with a move to Real Madrid collapsing on transfer deadline day in 2015.

The Red Devils star has two years left on his contract from June, and is valued at around £50m.
