Manchester United’s pursuit of Andre Onana is seemingly on the verge of completion and the £43 million move for the Cameroonian goalkeeper could have ramifications for Dean Henderson’s future at the club.
That’s according to Fabrizio Romano, which has been backed up by Chris Wheeler of the Daily Mail, who claims that Nottingham Forest and United will have another conversation this week over the signing of Dean Henderson.
Romano also claims that this is the next step of United’s goalkeeper plan.
After the signing of Onana, which is agreed according to Italian journalist Alfredo Pedulla, United will now allow Henderson to leave which could be the money needed to pursue their next target, Rasmus Hojlund.
Henderson out, Onana and Suzuki in?
Wheeler, from the Daily Mail, claims that Forest will now complete the signing of Henderson for around £20 million. Tom Heaton, who has been linked with a move to newly-promoted Luton Town, has signed a 12-month contract extension.
However, Heaton’s departure, according to the same report, cannot be ruled out after United spoke to Urawa Red Diamonds goalkeeper, Zion Suzuki. The goalkeeper rebuild looks to be accelerating at Old Trafford, with De Gea’s contract running out, Henderson set to leave as well as Heaton, it could be United’s biggest revamp of the position in over a decade.
Henderson sale to fund Hojlund move
Romano has also claimed that United will focus their attention on Atalanta’s Rasmus Hojlund. The signing of the striker, however, may come down to sales.

The hope will be that United could use the fee received for Henderson, which will go down as pure profit on the club’s accounts due to the goalkeeper being an academy player, to make a competitive offer for the Danish striker.
United’s transfer budget is reportedly set at around £100-150 million, so sales could be crucial if United are to pursue the forward.
