One fan, @masonhiggy3, said: 'Tell ya somet, if you sign for us, I'm having your face tattooed on me' as others added just one simple word '“ 'sign'.

Henderson came through United's academy and signed a new contract at Old Trafford in June that should keep him at the club until 2020, with option of a further year extension.
