Chelsea keeping tabs on Man Utd young prospect

Chelsea are reportedly one of the clubs interested in a possible transfer raid on Manchester United for exciting young prospects Dean Henderson.

The Red Devils shot-stopper is really shining on loan at Sheffield United this campaign and his form has attracted the attention of both Paris Saint-Germain and Chelsea, according to ESPN.

Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard looks in need of a replacement for Kepa Arrizabalaga in goal next campaign, with the Spaniard’s form dipping significantly this term, leading to him being dropped for Chelsea recent 2-2 draw with Leicester City.

Spanish outlet Cope have recently claimed Frank Lampard has asked the Chelsea board for a new ‘keeper this summer, and Dean Henderson could be ideal for the west London giants.

Notwithstanding the 22-year-old goalkeeper looking a superb prospect for Manchester United, his path to the first-team at Old Trafford is a hugely challenging one due to the presence of both Sergio Romero and David de Gea.

At Chelsea, Dean Henderson could certainly become number one straight away without having to drop down a level as he has done with Sheffield United.

The Blades are admittedly enjoying a superb season, but one imagines Dean Henderson will feel he’s good enough to play for a more proved side shortly, and Kepa’s situation at Chelsea inevitably means this could be a good move for him.

Manchester United, however, will surely want to avoid strengthening a big six rival, so that could give Paris Saint-Germain an advantage in any transfer battle.
