Manchester United reserve goalkeeper Dean Henderson is demanding a three-fold increase in his wages to stay at the club.
The England-under 21 international currently earns £25,000 a week, but, with his current deal expiring in 2020, wants £75,000 if he is to stay at the club.
Henderson has never played a Premier League game for United, but, having spent last season on loan with Sheffield United, he is sure to get his chance if, as widely expected, he returns to South Yorkshire for another campaign under Chris Wilder, with the newly promoted side beginning their stay back in the top flight with an away fixture at Bournemouth on August 10th.
Meanwhile, on the pitch, Henderson’s disappointing tournament with England at the under-21 championships in Italy came to an end with a 3 – 3 draw with Croatia on Tuesday night. England three times took the lead, but were pegged back each time, and finished the tournament with Henderson having conceded nine goals in total.
