This is according to Samuel Luckhurst of the Manchester Evening News, who has explained that a reason for the club and De Gea ending up in this current position is as a result of poor performances towards the back-end of last season.

Poor performances and Errors during the defeats to Sevilla, West Ham and Manchester City in the FA Cup final are said to have changed the player’s standing within the club.

Meanwhile, the club are refusing to commit to a decision on the future of Henderson.

Henderson is keen to leave the club and has made this clear on multiple occasions, with United reportedly in talks with Nottingham Forest for a permanent transfer.

It is said that Henderson has been “perplexed” by suggestions he could stay when he is one of the club’s most sellable assets.
