Despite Chelsea’s interest in signing Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson this summer, Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is unwilling to make the young goalkeeper his No.1 goalkeeper.

Henderson has impressed while on loan at Sheffield United and Chelsea are open to signing him as a replacement for Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Despite De Gea’s struggles in goal for Manchester United, Solskjaer insists Henderson will have to wait and fight if he wants to become No1 at Old Trafford, giving Chelsea a huge boost in the club’s bid to sign the Manchester United goalkeeper.

Solskjaer said: “One day Dean will be the Manchester United and England number one.

“But I still think David is the best goalkeeper in the world.

“He has had two fantastic years at Sheffield United for his development playing with men and against men.

“He has played in the Championship and now in the Premier League behind a team that plays fantastic, exciting football and his stats show he is worthy.”
