DEAN HENDERSON is reportedly stalling on a new Manchester United contract amid interest from Chelsea.
The Mirror claims Frank Lampard is ready to pounce for the £55million-rated Sheffield United loanee, who is seeking assurances on his Red Devils future from Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
It’s reckoned Henderson, 23, is wanted back at Old Trafford next season following some poor performances from David De Gea.
United are said to be offering a new and improved contract as they look to secure the England hopeful’s long-term future.
However, Henderson wants confirmation that he will be the club’s No 1 next term.
That could be difficult for United to promise as Solskjaer still wants De Gea to be his go-to goalie.
And the report adds that Henderson will seek a move should he fail to be given assurances of regular game time at the Theatre of Dreams.
That could open the door for Chelsea, who are looking to replace Kepa Arrizabalaga.
The FA Cup finalists are apparently ready to bid £55m for Henderson and make him one of their top earners on £170,000-a-week.
The shot-stopper has just two years remaining on his United deal, which could force the Red Devils into selling him.
There is also said to be interest from Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho, but he is reluctant to match Chelsea’s figures.
The report adds that Henderson would like his future to be sorted before he goes on holiday – which is next week.
