Man Utd offer Dean Henderson £60k a week in FIVE-fold wage increase to fend off Chelsea transfer interest

MANCHESTER UNITED have offered Dean Henderson £60,000 a week to fend off transfer interest from Chelsea, according to reports.

And that would see the goalkeeper increase his current wages by FIVE times at Old Trafford.

According to The Transfer Window Podcast, United are desperate to keep Henderson at the club next season and have offered him a bumper pay rise to convince him to stay put.

And it is thought a deal may be done to promote the England Under-21 international as first-choice stopper in pre-season, ousting David De Gea.

Henderson, 23, has spent the last two seasons excelling on loan at Sheffield United, helping them into the Premier League and then to a ninth-placed finish in the top flight last term.

Now he is unwilling to return to Old Trafford to warm the bench after proving his capabilities as one of the best goalkeepers in the league.

The Blades are preparing for life without the United academy graduate who has returned to his parent club, with Chris Wilder making a move for Bournemouth’s Aaron Ramsdale this week.

Henderson’s current Red Devils contract expires in 2022 and United will be determined not to lose their long-term successor to De Gea, who has struggled for form since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer took over.

Calls for De Gea to be dropped have increased over the course of the season following a string of high-profile errors, none more so than in the FA Cup semi-final defeat to Chelsea.

But De Gea penned a new contract worth £375,000 a week until 2023 last September, meaning it could prove difficult to get rid of him to make space for the Englishman.

As revealed by SunSport, Chelsea are monitoring the situation surrounding Henderson as Frank Lampard looks to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Like his compatriot De Gea, Arrizabalaga came under fire last season and was dropped in favour of Willy Caballero for spells.

Reports suggested the Blues were willing to double Henderson’s money to bring him to Stamford Bridge but now could be forced to pay far more to convince the highly-rated stopper to move south.
