De Gea, the Spanish international, has endured an indifferent season in goal at Old Trafford and is thought to be considering his future, even though the Red Devils hierarchy would like him to stay.

PSG are reportedly weighing up a move for De Gea to replace Gigi Buffon, and if De Gea is sold sources close to Old Trafford suggest there is a possibility Henderson could remain with Ole Gunnar Solskjær's men.

Solskjær wants all his transfer business done before the start of July, according to ESPN, while the Norweigan was so incensed by his side's performance on the final day of the season against Neil Warnock's Cardiff City that he reportedly threatened to sell half his squad.

The transfer window closes on 8 August, just a day before the new Premier League season is due to kick off.
