Manchester United boss Ralf Rangnick has admitted that Dean Henderson wants to leave the club in order to get more regular gametime.
However, when asked about Henderson at his pre-match press conference ahead of Saturday’s clash with Aston Villa, Rangnick said he has told Henderson he does not want to let him go.
The German claimed the 24-year-old has been impressed him in training this week and with United still in three competitions, he wants to keep three goalkeepers.
“Well, I told him that I would like him to stay because he’s a fantastic goalkeeper,” said Rangnick when asked for the latest on Henderson’s situation.
“In training yesterday, he had another couple of fantastic saves. I really like to have him on board, as one of three top goalkeepers.
“I can fully understand that he wants to play because he’s in an age where, as a goalkeeper, he should regularly play.
“On the other hand, we are still in three competitions, we need the three goalkeepers we have right now. I told him that but I can also, on the other hand, understand his desire to get gametime elsewhere in the Premier League.”
