Manchester United goalkeeper Dean Henderson reportedly threatens to leave the club this summer if he is not handed the number one spot.

Dean Henderson has reportedly handed Manchester United an ultimatum by informing boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer that he has no intention of playing back up to David de Gea.

The 23-year-old is back at Old Trafford following two years on loan with Sheffield United, where his displays have earned calls for him to replace error-prone De Gea.

According to The Sun, Henderson will ask to leave United this summer if he is not made Solskjaer's first-choice goalkeeper.

Pressure has been building on De Gea on the back of another disappointing campaign for the Spaniard, who has been United's undisputed No.1 for nine years.

Henderson kept 13 clean sheets in the Premier League last season - the same number as De Gea - and has been touted as a possible target for Chelsea.
