English Premier League giants Manchester United are well-known for their reputation as one of the biggest clubs in the world and also one of the best when it comes to how they usually get lucky with top-class goalkeepers. The Red Devils have had a couple of some of the best goalkeepers in the sport in the last years and it continues to look like the trend will continue, especially now that they have a current goalkeeper battle between Spain international shot-stopper David De Gea and England national team goalie Dean Henderson. Both goalkeepers are said to be part of the best crop of shot-stopper around and it has become a big headache for manager Olé Gunnar Solksjær to decide who would be the starting option between the pair.

They have already had the likes of Peter Schmeichel and Edwin van der Sar in the past but most recently, aside from De Gea and Henderson, they’ve also had to call on the services of Victor Valdes and Sergio Romero in recent years. While Valdes was a signing from Barcelona some years ago, Romero joined on a free transfer after leaving Italian Serie A club Sampdoria.

Last season, Henderson returned to Old Trafford after a loan spell at Sheffield United where he spent two seasons after being sent out temporarily to gain some match sharpness and experience. Henderson returned to Old Trafford as an improved star and also revealed that his goal was to become the starting goalie not just for Manchester United but for England as well.

He seems to have achieved his club aim though, with Solksjær trusting him to be the starter for their Premier League games throughout last season. And now, the club’s former goalie Anders Lindegaard has said that having a top-class goalkeeper has never been an issue for the Red Devils, while also adding that any manager would find it hard to choose between De Gea and Henderson.
