Manchester United should look to sell both David de Gea and Dean Henderson at the end of the season in order to fund a transfer for a ‘world class’ goalkeeper. That’s according to Liverpool legend Jamie Carragher.
De Gea was less than impressive last season for United while Henderson performed brilliantly on loan with Sheffield United.
Henderson has now returned to United but it’s not clear whether he will start over De Gea.
Carragher has doubts over whether Henderson is good enough for United and says the Red Devils should try and sell both next year.

“I think it’s a good situation for Solskjaer because this gives him 12 months to look at Dean Henderson,” Carragher told Sky Sports.
“Is Henderson good enough for Manchester United? I’m not quite sure.
“I think in 12 months’ time United could sell the two of them and buy a world-class goalkeeper.

“Henderson will get chances, but this is the last-chance saloon for De Gea.
“I’m not convinced. I think he was a really good goalkeeper but Manchester United should have one of the best goalkeepers in the world.
“I think in 12 months they will be in the market for a new goalkeeper.”
Meanwhile Gary Neville finds it hard to see how Henderson will take the No 1 spot away from De Gea straight away.
“The idea that Dean Henderson would come into Manchester United and replace David de Gea as No 1 goalkeeper straight away… it won’t happen, I can guarantee it won’t happen,” he said.
“This has got ‘problem’ written all over it. The one area of the pitch where you need consistency and stability is your goalkeeper, you need to know who your No 1 is, you cannot be flip-flopping.
“It just does not work; I’ve never seen it work at any club or at international level.
“Where there is a decision to be made about two goalkeepers you have to pick your No 1, go with him and stick with him, even if there is a mistake.
“Once you take David de Gea out of the team and put Henderson in, you may as well forget about De Gea. That’s coming from my experiences at United.”
