Solskjaer 'set to stick with either David De Gea or Dean Henderson as Man Utd No1 for rest of season and stop rotating'

OLE GUNNAR SOLSKJAER is tipped to choose between his Manchester United keepers Dean Henderson and David De Gea – then stick with the decision until the summer.

England back-up stopper Henderson played all six United games in March, keeping four clean sheets, after No 1 De Gea went on paternity leave.

And The Telegraph suggest Solskjaer has no plans to rotate his first-choice keepers when they return from the international break.

Second-placed United will get back to Premier League action at Brighton on Sunday evening.

They then play both legs of their Europa League quarter-final against Granada, either side of a trip to Tottenham on April 11.

Henderson returned from two successful loan campaigns with Sheffield United to sign a new United contract last summer.

Solskjaer refused to guarantee the 24-year-old the No 1 top but promised he would finally get his chance this term.

Now many pundits believe his March performances make him first-choice on merit.

That would reverse his usual role with De Gea, who has between the sticks for a decade but with question marks over the past two years.

Solskjaer, though, has always publicly backed the 30-year-old, who has 45 caps for Spain.

The former Atletico Madrid ace has two years left on his contract, with the option for a further season.

And although De Gea has been linked with a move back to Spain, his weekly salary of about £350,000 would be a headache for interested clubs, especially as finances have been hit by the coronavirus pandemic.
