Sorry Juventus and Bayern fans, it isn’t that goalkeeper unfortunately.

But according to ESPN, the Serie A and Bundesliga giants are just two of a number of clubs sniffing around Manchester United’s Dean Henderson.

Henderson is currently on loan at Sheffield United and a string of impressive performances for the Championship outfit have reportedly caught the eye of Bayern and Juve as well as Arsenal and Tottenham.

The 21-year-old continues to make a name for himself after he was named in the League One team of the season following his loan spell at Shrewsbury Town last year and he has so far been capped seven times for England at under-21 level.

The Whitehaven-born goalkeeper has already kept an impressive 10 clean sheets for the Blades this season and helped the club have the current third best defensive record in the division.

Henderson has been at Old Trafford since he was 14-years-old and United are reportedly keen to hang onto him.

However, he is currently behind David de Gea, Sergio Romero and Lee Grant in the goalkeeping pecking order and like Borussia Dortmund’s Jadon Sancho or Schalke’s Rabbi Matondo, he may decide that his chances of regular first-team football are greater in Germany or Italy.
