Inter Milan ‘interested’ in signing Dean Henderson from Manchester United, other transfer rumors

Inter Milan are reportedly interested in signing Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson.

According to Fichajes the Italian champions see the 24-year-old as the ideal long-term replacement for veteran stopper Samir Handanovic.

The 37-year-old appears to be on the verge of leaving San Siro and Inter are hoping to secure United’s second-choice goalkeeper services either in January or in the summer.

Henderson has struggled to gain playing time this season, having only made one appearance for United in their Carabao Cup loss to West Ham in September.

Last quarter he made 26 appearances in all competitions and apparently usurped David de Gea as the club’s first choice, but the Spaniard has firmly recovered as United’s No.1.

Inter have brought a number of United’s outcasts to Italy in recent years, including Alexis Sanchez, Ashley Young, Romelu Lukaku and Matteo Darmian.

However, the Italian giants could face competition for Henderson’s signing as he has also been linked with moves to Tottenham, Newcastle and Barcelona.

Meanwhile, the Reds are reportedly interested in signing Lazio midfielder Sergej Milinkovic-Savic as a replacement for Paul Pogba, who is out of contract at the end of the season.

According to the Corriere della Serra, relayed by Sports witness, United see the Serbian as the answer to their central midfield problems, but they face competition from Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain for his signing.

The Lazio star arrived at Stadio Olimpico in 2015 from Belgian side Genk and established himself as one of Italy’s most consistent midfielders, making 264 appearances for the Serie A side, scoring 50 goals and notching 43 assists.

The Serbian has also been selected 28 times by his country and was linked with a move to Old Trafford when Jose Mourinho managed the club.

However, United are reportedly interested in bringing Milinkovic-Savic to the Theater of Dreams this summer, a logical move given that Pogba is set to leave the club for a free transfer without having signed a new deal so far.

Madrid and PSG have both been linked with moves for the Frenchman but could target Milinkovic-Savic if they miss the United star.
