The 22-year-old helped United win promotion to the Premier League last season before re-joining the Blades on loan in the summer.

Henderson has made no secret of his desire to be No.1 at Old Trafford, but his path was made a little more complicated when David De Gea signed a new long-term deal with the Red Devils in the summer.

That move led to national newspaper reports that the Old Trafford hierarchy would consider offers in the region of £20m for Henderson – prompting many Blades to urge United to secure his permanent signature.

If that is the case, though, United are set to face some stiff competition – with reports this morning that European giants Bayern Munich are monitoring Henderson, as their long-term successor to Manuel Neuer.
