Former Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson completed his move to Crystal Palace towards the end of the Summer transfer window.

Well, the finer details over the deal have emerged with Alan Nixon, via his Patreon, claiming that United have managed to include a 15 per cent sell-on clause in the deal for the English goalkeeper.

The report also claims that United only received £15 million from the London side for the goalkeeper but there are add-ons in the deal, but they are not easy to trigger.

United decided to sell their former academy goalkeeper as he seemingly wanted assurances of being number 1 for the Red Devils.

Henderson sale figures

As well as the significant sell-on clause, which follows a similar path to the other youngsters United have sold this summer, the Red Devils have got add-ons in the deal that can be triggered.

Henderson has to make 100 appearances to hit the £2.5 million extra payment so the deal works for both clubs and Palace won’t have to pay up for a couple of years.

The other half of the £5 million bonuses United are entitled to, are based on league positions, appearances and internationals.

Were United right to sell Henderson

The answer to this question is surely a resounding yes. The goalkeeper was never going to be first choice at the club particularly after the club signed Andre Onana from Inter Milan last summer.

The deal to take Henderson to the London club only came after Nottingham Forest haggled over a loan deal with a view to a buy.

United will no doubt be delighted to include a rather high sell-on clause in the deal to sell the English goalkeeper after a difficult summer in terms of outgoings at Old Trafford.

United’s replacement Altay Bayindir has yet to feature for the Red Devils this summer following a summer move from Fenerbahce.
