Mark Bosnich has suggested that Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel would be a good signing for Manchester United, as quoted in The Express.

According to The Sun, United are interested in signing Schmeichel from Premier League rivals Leicester in the summer transfer window.

It has been reported that the Red Devils are looking at signing the Denmark international goalkeeper as a potential replacement for David de Gea.

De Gea is the first-choice goalkeeper at Old Trafford at the moment, but the Spain international has made a number of mistakes in recent seasons.

Schmeichel is the son of United legend Peter Schmeichel and is one of the best goalkeepers in the Premier League.

The 33-year-old has been on the books of the Foxes since 2011 and won the Premier League title with the club in 2015-16.

Former United goalkeeper Bosnich has given his take on the speculation, and he believes that Schmeichel would be a good signing for the Red Devils.

The Express quotes Bosnich as saying: “When he’s playing well, he’s as good as any goalkeeper in the Premier League. He’s won a title with Leicester, he’s been very consistent at international level for quite some time as well. Obviously, when Leicester were in the Champions League he performed very well.

“We don’t know exactly with the David De Gea situation, we saw Ole Gunnar Solskaer back him and keep him in the side. There’s Dean Henderson as well, but I think that would be a fantastic move for both parties.

“Even if they decide to keep David De Gea, to have someone of the quality of Kasper Schmeichel fighting for a place with De Gea would bring the whole standard up a coupe of notches.

“Like I said, when he plays at his best which is more regular than not, Kasper Schmeichel is as good as anyone in the Premier League.”

Good signing for Manchester United?

Schmeichel is at the top of the game, and at the age of 33, he would make an immediate impact at United.

A move to Old Trafford would be hugely tempting for the Denmark international, especially as his father player for the Red Devils.
