The Bundesliga has become the main destination for many English teenagers after testifying the success stories of Jadon Sancho and Reiss Nelson and the interest on Henderson only justify that. Just like other German sides, Bayern Munich too now have also turned their attention to England to help with their squad rejuvenation and after strong link with Chelsea for winger Callum Hudson Odoi, they have reportedly again set their sight on the 21-year-old English shot-stopper.
On the other hand, Juventus who also has a record of snatching young players from all over the world, too reportedly have been attracted by the development Henderson made in last few years and apparently, they too are contemplating a move for the keeper.
Henderson, however, has a two years deal remaining with United with an option of extending it to a further year. But with so much competition at the top with David De Gea and Sergio Romero already preferred to be the first two choices, the English keeper's future at Old Trafford for the time being looks bleak.
But it is believed that the English giant rate Henderson highly and is determined to keep hold of him despite such interest. The Old Trafford hierarchy reportedly believes the Carlisle born shot-stopper can be the direct replacement of ageing Romero, who could leave the side in coming 1-2 year.
