Manchester United target has interest from 'many clubs'

Published Add your comment

Transfer interest in Leicester City goalkeeper and Manchester United target Kasper Schmeichel is high, if you are to believe his agent.

Schmeichel performed admirably during Denmark's 1-0 friendly defeat to England at Wembley earlier this month and Mads Fredriksen has claimed that there is a lot of interest in his client that has not exactly dwindled as a result.

"Kasper has played on a very high level for a long time, and we can also notice a lot of interest from many clubs. His performance against England doesn’t make the interest smaller," he was quoted by The Daily Mirror.

"From a commercial perspective, it opens up some great opportunities for Kasper in relation to personal sponsorships, so it’s a very exciting time for him.”

27-year-old Schmeichel - father of legendary Manchester United 'stopper Peter - joined current club Leicester during the summer of 2011 and has gone from strength-to-strength after a rather mediocre spell with Leeds.

His form between the posts at the King Power Stadium has certainly not gone unnoticed in recent weeks, with both Manchester United and Serie A giants AC Milan linked with a move for the £4 million-rated Schmeichel towards the very latter stages of the previous transfer window.

Given that his father enjoyed so much success and is still an admired figure at the club, a move to the Premier League champions and Old Trafford could surely be rather appealing to the player - particularly given that Manchester United are reportedly looking for better competition for first-choice 'keeper David de Gea this summer with the underwhelming Anders Lindegaard set to leave the club.

However, with Leicester currently sitting proudly atop of the Championship and now 17 points clear of third-placed Derby, it certainly looks as if the Foxes are heading towards automatic promotion to the Premier League - is this something he will want to turn his back on in order to be a reserve for Manchester United who, admittedly, are in the midst of a difficult and painful transition?
