Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson is demanding a huge increase in wages if he is to sign a new contract at the club.
The 22-year-old has never made an appearance for the Red Devils, but he believes he should be paid £75,000-a-week in a new deal, reports the Sun.
The England under-21 stopper is currently paid £25,000-a-week on his contract which runs until the summer of 2020 and United want to tie him down to a longer deal.
With new signing Dan James signing a contract worth £67,000-a-week having arrived from Swansea, Henderson is confident he can demand more cash to commit his future to the club.
The keeper spent last season on loan at Sheffield United and excelled as the Blades won promotion to the Premier League.
He is expected to return to South Yorkshire for another loan spell in the forthcoming season after playing all 46 Championship games last campaign.
Henderson has never played a Premier League game but he is extremely confident that he is ready to make the step up.
Whether at Manchester United, Sheffield United, wherever, Im good enough to be a Premier League goalkeeper. I deserve that chance, he told the Daily Mail.
Its a tough one to say where. But do I think I should be playing at Manchester United now? Yes I do.
I think I am good enough and I would help the team a lot, in a positive way. If not there Im sure I could go back to Sheffield United, play a season and then Ill prove to Manchester United what they are missing.
