The Red Devils boss has ended up looking at two former Man Utd players as a result – Sam Johnstone and Tom Heaton, according to a report in the Sun.

With United looking like promoting Henderson to be number one over David de Gea, that could surely cast serious doubt over the future of the long-serving Spanish shot-stopper.


If that is the case, Man Utd would do well to bring in someone like Johnstone or Heaton, with the Sun claiming the former is their preferred choice.
