According to reports, Chelsea are ready to offer a mouthwatering salary to Dean Henderson. The Blues are willing to pay him more than double what he earns at Old Trafford in an attempt to prise him away from Manchester United.

According to Manchester Evening News, Chelsea have made contact with the player’s representatives over a possible move amid Frank Lampard’s willingness to discard Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Henderson, 23, is believed to currently earn around £70,000 a week, but the West London side are ready to pay £170,000-a-week wages.

Henderson will return to United once his loan with Sheffield United ends next week. He is contracted to United until 2022.
