Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing on-loan United Dean Henderson as Frank Lampard seen the 23-year-old as a priority following a poor season for Kepa Arrizabalaga.
The young goalkeeper has impressed during his two-year loan spell with Sheffield United, especially this campaign helping the Blades compete for European football.
United are identified the England international as a potential replacements for David de Gea but they given the Spanish goalkeeper a long contract extension that lasts three more years with an option for a fourth.
Meanwhile, De Gea’s wages are now
astronomical that no other club would match it and on current form there is literally no chance any other club would sign him.
Manchester United, then, in theory cannot offer Henderson first team football for three more years and Chelsea are hoping that their willingness to give it to the 23-year-old straight away will prove too tempting to resist.
And according To The Sun, Chelsea have thrown a spanner in the works by making clear their intention to tempt the £53million-rated shot-stopper to Stamford Bridge despite Manchester United opened contract extension talks with the 23-year-old last week.
Chelsea are already secured the signing of RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner while Hakim Ziyech deal was announced since earlier of February.
