Exclusive news: Late attempt by Manchester United to sign bees special player.

According to sources speaking to Football Insider, Man United approached Rico Henry of Brentford late in the summer transfer window about a prospective trade.
The Bees have become increasingly aware of interest in the 26-year-old defender during the primary transfer window.
Top Premier League clubs are now prepared to intensify their interest in signing Henry, including Man United.

The Red Devils, though, were unable to finalise a deal for the Brentford star and instead chose to sign Tottenham defender Sergio Reguilon.

Reguilon, 26, joined United on transfer deadline day (1 September) for a season-long loan.

Luke Shaw’s major injury has kept him out of the England team, thus it’s thought that Henry is on the edges of the group.

The left-back is “definitely” in Gareth Southgate’s plans, according to a reliable source.

Henry has played for Brentford in every Premier League minute thus far in the 2023–24 season, but he was not present for their League Cup victory over Newport County.

The superstar from Birmingham has already given the Bees this season one assist.

In 39 appearances in all competitions for the London club in the 2022–23 season, he registered two assists.

Up until June 2026, Henry is bound by a contract with the Brentford Community Stadium.

The left-back has already played 202 times for the team and was an important member of their 2021 promotion-winning team.

Shaw, a standout for Manchester United, is out with a significant muscle injury, while Tyrell Malacia, a backup, was also sidelined with an injury and missed all of preseason.

This season, United and Brentford have both won two of their first four Premier League games.
