De Gea’s slump in form made Manchester United vulnerable to the opposition’s fierce attacks. The management was a bit worried about the goalkeeping area. So, they summoned back Dean Henderson. The England international was terrific for Sheffield United in his loan spell for them. He was hailed quite high by the pundits all over the world for his heroics in the Premier League. His dominant performance made United convinced that he is ready for the Premier League action. Solskjaer was very impressed by his performance for the blades and didn’t delay his inclusion in the first-team squad. Since his permanent move to Manchester, Dean Henderson net worth has been on the rise. Let’s take a look at his journey so far.
Dean Henderson: Early time at Manchester Academy
Born on 12th March 1997 Dean Henderson’s love for football developed at a young age. He was 14 when he joined the Manchester United academy. After progressing through the academy ranks he made his place in the u-18 Premier League team. In August 2015, Henderson signed his first professional contract with the club. He enjoyed various loan spells in teams like Stockport County, Grimsby Town, Shrewsberry Town, and Sheffield United. During his loan spell at Sheffield, he really developed his game and made a name for himself. In 2019 he signed a contract with his parent club and also made his debut with the Blades. His heroics in the Sheffield team finally earned him the place at Manchester United first-team under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
A permanent move to Manchester:
In August 2020 the goalkeeper signed a contract with Manchester United that nets him a whopping salary of €5.5 million. He was rewarded with a 5 year-long contract at United which confirmed his net worth around £26 million. He made his senior debut in the third round of the League Cup against Luton Town. He was also very much excited to make his debut in the Champions League. The outcome at the end was not as planned but it was a dream come true moment for him. However, his luck was not on his side as he couldn’t participate in the Euros due to an injury. He has made his England national team debut but only for a friendly.
Henderson is quite young and has a long way to go. He is already learning from one of the best goalkeepers in the world, David De Gea. This will be fruitful for him in the coming days. His rising net worth speaks for his immense improvement. Though United signed Tom Heaton, but Solskjaer has confirmed that Dean is the 2nd goalkeeper. So, the future looks quite bright for the youngster.
