Press reports revealed that Manchester United He plans to sign Danish goalkeeper Casper Schmeichel, Leicester City player, in the summer transfer market.
According to the newspaper “Sun”, Manchester United has identified Schmeichel as a substitute for the Spanish David de Gea, who has committed many mistakes this season, and the team has assigned many points.
The newspaper added that the Manchester United administration considers Schmeichel the ready option to compensate de Gea, while it considers that the “debt of Henderson” loaned to Sheffield United is still below the required level.
Kasper Schmeichel, 33, is the son of Peter Schmeichel, who played for Manchester United between 1991 and 1999.
The newspaper pointed out that the cost of signing Casper is less than the cost of contracting the Slovenian Jan Oblak, player of Atletico Madrid, as his club demands 100 million euros to sell it.
But the problem with Manchester United is that Casper’s contract extends with Leicester until June 2023, which could hinder the deal, especially since Kasper is a key element in the squad of wolves, and he was with him when he won the Premier League title of the 2015/2016 season.
The Slovenian has a penal clause in his contract with Rojeblancos, but it is worth 109 million pounds.
De Gea participated this season in 42 games with Manchester United, in which he received 42 goals, and kept the net clean 15 times.
While Casper Schmeichel played 44 games with Leicester City, he received 48 goals, and kept the nets clean in 14 games.
