Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel has emerged as a shock target for Manchester United.
Schmeichel whose dad Peter previously featured for United is seen as a readymade replacement for David De Gea according to The Sun with the Spaniard having had some torrid performances in the recent campaigns.
United are sure unsure about the ability of Dean Henderson with a big club and they are expected to extend his stay at Sheffield United for another season on a loan deal despite interest from clubs like Chelsea.
Schmeichel has three years left on his Leicester deal and having been one of the key members of the squad, getting him won’t come easy. However, the title winner would be cheaper than other options linked with United; the likes of Atletico Madrid's Jan Oblak, 27, who has a release clause of around £109million, mentioned as potential targets.
United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has doubts over whether Henderson is ready for the top job, despite a stellar season on loan at Sheffield United and the Norwegian can no longer offer his blind support to error-prone De Gea, 29.
Kasper Schmeichel: "This is with absolutely no disrespect to journalists or pundits, but you’ve actually never stood in that goal — often this narrative can be created around a goalkeeper because it’s the pundits and journalists’ job to educate and that’s their job."— utdreport (@utdreport) July 25, 2020
