Manchester United Plotting Sensational Move For Leicester City's Kasper Schmeichel, Son Of Club Legend Peter

Manchester United Plotting Sensational Move For Leicester City's Kasper Schmeichel, Son Of Club Legend Peter

Manchester United are reportedly lining up a sensational summer move for Kasper Schmeichel, son of club legend Peter.

Leicester City keeper Schmeichel is seen as an experienced keeper who could come straight into the United team after David de Gea's poor run of form.

The Sun have reported that the 33-year-old has three years remaining on his deal with The Foxes but would be relatively cheap to other targets.

It's also been reported that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doesn't think Dean Henderson, currently on loan at Sheffield United, is ready to be number one at Old Trafford yet.

The 23-year-old wants to force himself into the England squad ahead of next summer's European Championships.

He understands a place in Gareth Southgate's starting eleven would be hard to nail down if not playing regular football.

United signing Schmeichel would likely get fans emotional and thinking about the club's glory days with his father between the sticks.

Father Peter earned the title of 'The Great Dane' during his eight year spell at United and he was part of the club's famous treble winners in 1999.

His combative attitude on the pitch also made him one of the most respected and feared players in Sir Alex Ferguson's side.

While Peter would likely want to see his son at the Theatre of Dreams, he recently leapt to de Gea's defence after a shaky season.

He told beIN Sports: "There is an English goalkeeper, young, on loan at Sheffield United [Henderson], he's done fantastically well, he's very, very promising and it's a great story.

"[But] De Gea's one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League for the last I don't know how many years.

"One of the things I believe is that the way Ole's changed the way the team plays hasn't fitted in with the way that De Gea has played in the last couple of years and so he would have had to make changes to his game.

"And in making changes you're always making mistakes. If you don't make mistakes, you don't really learn.

"They've now got third place, they've got the Europa League to focus on now, he comes back with a couple of weeks break, comes back to a new season, he'll be alright.

"I see David de Gea as the goalkeeper for Manchester United for many years to come and I think he has been treated unfairly in all honesty."
