De Gea is also in the frame to be named the club's new captain if indeed a decision is made to take the armband off Harry Maguire.  United are also in talks with Watford over goalkeeper Daniel Bachmann, who will likely join the club to take Henderson's place as the club's number two. Bachmann, an Austrian international, was previously targeted by Ten Hag when he was in charge of Dutch champions Ajax.

Lee Grant has left United this summer, and it's understood that Tom Heaton, who joined United last summer and is an academy product of United's, is wanted by Championship club Middlesbrough.

Boro have also successfully tempted United goalkeeping coach Alan Fettis to the club, confirming the news in an official statement earlier this week. Fettis turned down a number of approaches from other clubs to join Chris Wilder's coaching staff.
