‘Kasper Schmeichel would ‘do anything’ to join Manchester United’

Kasper Schmeichel would do anything to join Manchester United this summer, says his former teammate Mikkel Bischoff. The 33-year-old Danish goalkeeper has been linked with the Red Devils as a possible short-term solution if David de Gea is sold this summer. Schmeichel would be United’s first team choice while Dean Henderson could develop further on loan or as a backup goalkeeper.

Bischoff says Schmeichel would accept an offer from United without doubt. “The most successful goalkeepers at the club in recent years have been well into their thirties. He can easily play three or four good years there. Schmeichel is a huge United fan. He always has been and always will be, it will be the biggest dream come true if he were to succeed (in joining United).”

“If Kasper gets the opportunity to play just ten games for United, then he jumps”, he added. “It’s simply so big for him. He is such a big fan that he will do anything to get to that club.” Schmeichel joined Leicester City in 2011 and he has made 379 appearances since joining the Foxes. In 2014 he won the title in the Championship and two years later Leicester surprised the world by winning the Premier League.
