Man United make contact with goalkeeper who could become Ten Hag’s UEL number one
Manchester United are lucky to have two great goalkeepers on their books. However, with that comes his problems and the Red Devils need to find a summer solution in order to satisfy both David De Gea and Dean Henderson.
De Gea, 31, is a long-time servant to the club and with his form, which at times seems to be back to its best, is looking to continue at Old Trafford for some time to come.
Henderson, 25, on the other hand, has struggled to snatch the club’s number one shirt from his Spanish counterpart and after barely playing this season, is one of the main candidates to be sold this summer.

If Henderson finds his long-term future at a new club, United will no doubt have to come up with a cheaper alternative who is more willing to accept a substitute role.
According to a recent report from a Spanish outlet ASone player who fits the bill perfectly is Valencia shot-stopper Giorgi Mamardashvili.
Speaking earlier this year, the 21-year-old Georgia international revealed how much he wants to fulfill his potential.
“I want to be a better goalkeeper in the future and I want to take advantage of the opportunity they gave me,” said the young guard Valence.
AS claim United have already made contact over a possible £13m (€15m) deal but face competition from Los Murcielagos, who are said to be desperate to extend their deal beyond 2024.
In an effort to convince the 21-year-old to move to Old Trafford, United may be willing to make the youngster their regular Europa League number one – a role former goalkeeper Sergio Romero played while working under ex-boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Since joining the La Liga outfit from Dinamo Tbilisi last year, Mamardashvili has made 21 senior first-team appearances and is credited with keeping nine clean sheets.
