Manchester United are receptive to negotiating a loan deal with an obligation to buy Dean Henderson with Nottingham Forest as long as they bank the fee by the January transfer window.
United rejected Forest’s initial proposal to loan Henderson, 26, and sign him once he had played a certain number of games as they want to sell the goalkeeper.
Forest are cautious about re-signing Henderson, who spent last season on loan at the City Ground, as he has not played since January due to a thigh injury. Henderson had surgery in May but is training with United on their pre-season tour of the United States and is nearing a return to match fitness.
United believe sales in the summer and winter transfer windows would ensure they comply with the Premier League’s profitability and sustainability rules, so they want payment for Henderson to be triggered by the new year, at the latest.
Reports in Italy suggest Manchester United are now on the verge of striking an agreement with Atalanta for Rasmus Hojlund with a new written offer set to be submitted ‘in the coming days’. The Red Devils have been locked in talks with the Serie A club over the Danish frontman for several weeks but it now appears the saga is finally nearing a positive and rewarding conclusion for Erik ten Hag.
