Dean Henderson is continuing to push for a permanent Manchester United exit, according to reports.

The Mirror claims the Cumbrian goalkeeper could miss Man Utd’s pre-season tour of the USA as he presses for a departure.

Henderson is wanted by Nottingham Forest – where he spent last season on loan – with a deal of around £30m reportedly in prospect.

The Whitehaven star is back on the training ground at Man Utd as he returns from the thigh injury that cut short his 2022/23 season.

Henderson showed he was making progress on the way back with an Instagram post showing him in training.

“Been a long time! Nice to be back out there,” he wrote.

His Old Trafford future remains up in the air at a time Man Utd are pursuing Inter Milan keeper Andre Onana.

The Mirror also say boss Erik ten Hag is pushing to bring in another keeper.

Long-term first-choice No1 David de Gea yesterday announced he would be leaving the club after a long contract saga.

A multi-million pound Henderson transfer this summer would benefit Carlisle United through the terms of his move from the Blues’ academy back in 2011.

But Carlisle chief executive Nigel Clibbens recently cooled speculation that United could gain a massive windfall from such a move.

At a fans’ forum at Brunton Park, director Clibbens said there was a “small percentage” from which United would benefit.

He added that any Henderson revenue is unlikely to be “transformational” for the Blues.

“Even at big, double-digit millions, it’s not going to help us too much,” Clibbens said.

“It would be welcome, and would help with transfer budgets and things like that, but isn’t going to give us a mountain of cash to do everything we’ve talked about.”

Clibbens said the same applied to a prospective move for ex-Carlisle academy keeper James Trafford, who has been strongly linked with a £19m move from Manchester City to Burnley.
