Manchester United youngster Dean Henderson has warned David de Gea that he is coming for his No.1 spot, MySportDab reports.
The 23-year-old goalkeeper will return to Old Trafford for his first full season after a remarkable season on loan at Sheffield United.
Henderson is currently with the England squad for the upcoming match against Iceland in the Nations League this weekend.
Henderson recently signed a new six-year contract amid links of a move to Chelsea.
“I’ll be back in first day of pre-season and working very hard to get in the starting line-up because it’s something I want and I’m very close now,” said Henderson.
“I respect David alot. David has been a great Goalkeeper for a long time. He’s been fantastic and that’s something i love, to have a career like that here.
“It’s upto to me but I’m very confident that I’m going to improve instead of just being on the bench. I need more game time.
“I know how difficult it will become and I’m ready for it. I feel like a new player at Manchester United.
“I want to play for Manchester United and England, so I’m just going to work hard every single day, getting past my challenges, my goals and I’m sure one day I’ll become what I want to be.”
Henderson played 86 matches across two seasons for Sheffield United as first choice.
Now, Henderson is not going back to United just to become De Gea’s backup option.
Henderson has honoured for his performances under Chris Wilder at Sheffield United.
“Chris was a very good manager, rough and ready just exactly what I needed,” he said.
“He put me on track when I needed to that but really believed in me, which is something i always loved about him. He made me feel great.
Henderson added: “For most young Goalkeepers it’s mostly mental.
“It sounds weird right but having to prove yourself the long way is not easy, through the football leagues, then you’ve got an edge. I believe I’ve got that edge now.
“It puts me in a good place and works perfectly for me. I’m happy with who I am.”
Manchester United have already made their first signing of the summer by bringing in midfielder Donny Van de Beek from Ajax.
