Tottenham Hotspur were interested in Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson

According to Andy Mitten on The Athletic’s Talk of the Devils Podcast (h/t The Express), Tottenham Hotspur were interested in securing the services of Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson.

That was ahead of the 2020-21 season when expectations were for high him to replace David De Gea, who had a horrific run of form at Old Trafford. Henderson appeared primed to become regular for both club and possibly even country.

However, it has not gone according to plan and he has been largely forced to play second fiddle. Initially, he succeeded in taking over the starting spot but, the competition seems to have awakened something in De Gea, who has since returned to his usual best.

Chelsea were also interested in Henderson and put in a massive bid of £50million to secure his services. However, it got rejected and they eventually bought Edouard Mendy, which turned out great for them. Borussia Dortmund were the other interested party, but a move never materialised.

Opportunity exists?

Hugo Lloris has continued to be a commanding presence on goal for us but has shown signs of decline. He is in the latter stages of his career and would need to be replaced moving forward. Should Antonio Conte turns his attention towards the Red Devils star, we could see our interest in him rekindled ahead of the January transfer window.

Lloris would also see his current contract come to an end in the summer of 2022. He could leave as a free agent ahead of next season if an extension is not agreed upon between his representatives and the club. However, Tottenham are confident of reaching an agreement with talks set to happen over the coming weeks.

At 34, the Spurs skipper could still play at the top level for at least another season, but he would need a replacement in the future. If the North London club considers Pierluigi Gollini as an unreliable backup, we have to look elsewhere for new options.

Henderson could be just what we need, and with him frustrated with the lack of minutes, we could prise him away from Old Trafford. A proven talent in the top flight, Henderson could perform from the word go and will not need a settling in period.

The Englishman is certainly a talent to keep an eye on. With chances at ba premium at Man United, it remains to be seen where exactly his future lies.
