• Henderson ready for the challenge to be Manchester United top goalkeeper
  • Sergio Romero likely to leave this summer
  • Henderson won't be dealt out on loan following fresh deal

Dean Henderson is not going anywhere after the 23-year-old goalkeeper signed a fresh six-year lease with Manchester United. However, it does raise new questions on who Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will start as the club's shot-stopper. That honor belongs to David De Gea although there could be changes ahead.

According to Sky Sports, Henderson will earn roughly around $159,000 per week with the new deal. The English goalie is fresh from a loan spell with Sheffield United but it appears he will no longer be lent out next season. Instead, he will battle for the no. 1 goalkeeper position, something that raises questions on De Gea's fate.

And while that is up in the air, a likely casualty from this development is Sergio Romero. Playing backup to De Gea, he is likely to leave Old Trafford this summer. Several clubs could use Romero. Among the ones who are linked to a 33-year-old goalie include Chelsea, Everton and Leeds United.

Of those teams, it is no secret that Frank Lampard is unhappy with the goalies he has right now. The Blues are looking at options with Lampard far from content with Kepa Arrizabalaga and Willy Caballero's efforts. Ironically, Chelsea was one of the clubs linked to the English goalkeeper but the new contract has shelved these speculations.

De Gea has been having a rough go in the latter stages of last season and speculations grew about a change in goalkeeping. Until recently, Solskjaer said he was sticking with De Gea but all that could change moving forward.

"We are in a strong position within the goalkeeping department and that gives us the competition for places that we are looking for in the squad," Solskjaer said.

As for Henderson, he needs to show Solskjaer that he deserves to be Man Utd's top goalie for next season. To do that, he needs to show up De Gea who he admits he looked up to the past years.

"David De Gea has had an unbelievable career at the football club and it wasn’t so long ago I was saying, if I could replicate that career one day I would be a very proud man. So to learn off him and the other two top goalkeepers within the department would be great. I am really looking forward to it,” Henderson said via the team's official website.
