An approach from Newcastle was turned down and the Magpies will reportedly re-enter the race for Henderson in the summer. The oil-rich Tyneside outfit have the best hope of matching the asking price and the player’s £100,000 per week salary.
Newcastle struggled to recruit from the Premier League market in January, with rivals still fuming over their Saudi-backed takeover. United also turned down a big offer from Eddie Howe’s side for Jesse Lingard, even though the midfielder will leave for free at the end of the season.
Howe is likely to look for a new goalkeeper with 32-year-old Martin Dubravka not being entirely convincing since the former Bournemouth boss’ arrival in November. Dubravka is the third shot-stopper to be used by the Toon Army this season – Freddie Woodman and Karl Darlow have also earned minutes.
