Despite the fine form of Dean Henderson who is currently on loan at Sheffield United, Ole Gunnar still continues to back De Gea as his ManUtd’s number 1 goalkeeper.The Man Utd boss said that Henderson is not yet ready to replace De Gea as United’s no. 1 goalkeeper and therefore considers a one-year loan extension for Henderson to stay at Sheffield.“We need to make sure Dean plays football to develop, so we’re going to make a decision later on,” Solskjaer said.“He’s had two fantastic years and we appreciate what Sheffield United have done with him as well. So that’s an option, for him to stay at Sheffield United.”“I think Dean has had a fantastic couple of years at Sheffield United and I think eventually he will end up as England’s No.1 and man Utd’s No.1.“But he’s got the best goalkeeper in the world to tip off his place and for me, David is still developing and still getting better and better."“We are going to make a decision after both clubs sit down with him," he continued.Henderson, who is currently 23 years old, has continued to impress in the 2 years he’s been at Bramall Lane. He helped Sheffield to championship promotion and a fine return to the English Premier League.Ole Gunnar currently does not see a need of Hendersonreturning to Old Trafford with the availability of other three goalkeepers. According to Solskjaer, Sergio Romero will continue to deputize De Gea.“I think Sergio is the best No.2 in the world. He’s so professional, even though he wants to play every game. He challenges David but they’re also good friends.Earlier this season, Henderson said that he will return to OldTrafford only if he is guaranteed playing time. He is currently holding out on a new contract extension and only has 2 years left and a year’s option on his current deal.Manchester United manager still believes De Gea is the best in the world and wouldn’t swap him with anyone even after Degea faced a lot of criticisms after their match against Tottenham after making an error resulting to a goal in the first half."Dean can work in our goalkeeping department alongside David, Sergio (Romero) and Lee (Grant) but you can’t have three or four top keepers there and he needs games.”Photo Credit: Getty Images
