The injury to left back Luke Shaw has left Manchester United amidst a cloud of uncertainty.
After playing for The Red Devils in the first two English Premier League matches of the season, an unfortunate injury suffered in training had sidelined the defender, leaving the club scrambling in search of a reliable replacement.
As the summer transfer window approached its climax, United explored various avenues to bolster their defensive lineup and were linked with at least 7 left-backs.
One of the names that emerged during the summer’s transfer window was Rico Henry from Brentford.
The 26-year-old left-back had caught the attention of Manchester United’s scouting team, leading to inquiries about his availability.
And now it seems that Brentford have named their asking price for the former Walsall man.
According to reports from Football Insider, Brentford could entertain offers exceeding £35 million for the talented defender.
Rico Henry has played a pivotal role in Brentford’s squad since their return to the Premier League and has become a favorite under the management of Thomas Frank.
The left-back is reportedly content with his current situation at the London club, and Brentford hold a strong position with Henry under contract until June 2026.
While Manchester United may not immediately require another left-back in 2024, unless one of their current options departs, Rico Henry’s future could be one of the intriguing stories to watch out for.
Interest from other top English Premier League sides adds to the speculation surrounding the player’s potential move in the coming year.
