[Henderson’s ‘big dream’ hints at Man Utd return to compete with De Gea] The big dream is to play for Manchester United one day. I’ve always had that dream throughout my life so until that’s accomplished I’ll never think I’ve made it. Even if I play for them once I won’t think I’ve made it. I need to play for them 500 times, 300 times, whatever it is, then you can turnaround at the end of your career and say, ‘I made it, I did what I set out to do’. [I want to] get to 40 points first and foremost to stay up [with Sheffield United]. If we do that, win as many games as possible towards the end of the season and then going into the summer fight for the No.1 spot as much as I can. That’s what I’ll be doing and hopefully I can make it happen

[Sheffield United goalkeeper Dean Henderson believes his impressive form this season can help him supplant Jordan Pickford in goal for England at Euro 2020] Hopefully I can nail down a place in the Euros squad first. Being ambitious like I am, and I don’t think there’s anything wrong with that, I’ve got my eyes on the shirt. I’ve just got to keep performing, keep doing well and hopefully get an opportunity because you can’t prove anything without an opportunity, then see where we are in the summer. Obviously there are three great goalkeepers. We’ve got a great group and it’s going to be a great battle for the shirt. Hopefully towards the summer it could be very interesting to see who gets the nod

[Henderson credits manager Chris Wilder with the Blades’ success this season, saying he’s instilled confidence and belief in the players, while urging them to greater and greater heights] The manager demands more from us. When we get to 40 points, we’re not going to stop at 40 points. People may think we will be happy and think what a great first season in the Premier League. But we want to go higher, we want to fight for Europe, we want to get in the Europa League. Why not go for Champions League? Who knows? Everyone thought we would go straight back down with the least points in Premier League history. Look at us now, so we’ve just got to keep striving

[He talks about his rise into England contention] That’s what you work for, isn’t it? That’s what you work for, isn’t it? I’ve been there before with the (Under) 21s when it looked impossible (to become first choice). I’ve just got to keep my foot on the accelerator and keep working hard and see where it takes me.

[Henderson said of his arrival at the Blades in 2018] I went up to see the gaffer and I remember he said, ‘We’ll hopefully get into the play-offs this season’. I was, like, ‘We need to get automatic’. I said it tongue in cheek but it was a great season from all the boys, the memories and relationships I’ve made over the past two seasons have been phenomenal and will live with me forever
