Jose Mourinho has managed to persuade Arsenal and Chelsea FC target Dean Henderson to remain at Manchester United, according to a report in England.

The Daily Mail, as quoted by the Daily Express, is reporting that Henderson was attracting a lot of interest from Manchester United’s rivals given his contract was set to expire in the summer,

The same article states that Portuguese giants Benfica, Greek outfit Olympiakos and Serie A outfit AS Roma have also shown an interest in the 21-year-old after he impressed during a season-long loan at League One side Shrewsbury Town.

According to the same story, Mourinho has managed to persuade Henderson to verbally commit to a new two-year deal to ensure the English talent remains at Old Trafford.
