Liverpool Revival Could Be In Jeopardy If They Don’t Tie Down Stars to New Contracts
Henderson is widely expected to take over as club captain when Steven Gerrard leaves Anfield in the summer, but there is now some doubt over a new deal for the midfielder.
Brendan Rodgers is understood to have offered the 24-year-old £80,000 a week to stay on Merseyside, but the player’s representatives believe he could get double that elsewhere.
