Neville: I want to see this Liverpool 26-year-old join Man United
By Will Butcher
Phil Neville has revealed that Jordan Henderson would be the only Liverpool player he would take at rivals Manchester United.
Henderson, 26, has starred as captain for Jurgen Klopp’s side this season, as he continues to fill the boots previously worn by Reds legend Steven Gerrard in the holding midfield role.
Replying to a fan on his personal Twitter account, former Everton and United star Neville claimed Henderson would be his choice if he could pick any Reds players for United.
Are there any players you'd take at united that play for Liverpool? Who and why?

The former Sunderland midfielder has proved his importance at Anfield as the team has struggled in his absence through injury.
United could do with a new holding midfielder, as veteran Michael Carrick has entered the final three months of his contract while Bastian Schweinsteiger joined MLS outfit Chicago Fire.

The versatile ace has an average of 86 per cent passing accuracy this season according to Squawka, and would be a perfect replacement for Carrick should the former Spurs ace leave.
Liverpool’s number 14 has three years remaining on his Anfield contract, and is likely to command a huge transfer fee should Jose Mourinho ever look to bring him to Old Trafford.
Currently sidelined with a foot injury, Henderson has made just six appearances since the turn of the year as he continues to recover from a foot injury.
