Manchester United assistant manager Ryan Giggs is reportedly keen on signing Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.
As reported by The Sun, the Red Devils could make a move for Schmeichel - son of the club's legendary 'keeper Peter - if David de Gea leaves the club for Real Madrid.
De Gea has long been linked with a move to the Bernabeu but a return to the Spanish capital failed to materialise in the summer transfer window.

In fact, the shot-stopper signed a new long-term contract in Manchester but it appears that he could still leave the club behind.
With a transfer ban on the horizon for Real Madrid, the same report from The Sun claims that the club could swoop for De Gea in this transfer window.
United certainly won't want to sell De Gea - the goalkeeper has been in tremendous form once again this season - but it appears that Schmeichel is on the club's radar if the Spaniard departs.
It's not exactly surprising that United are eyeing the Leicester City ace. Ultimately, the shot-stopper has been one of the standout goalkeepers in the Premier League this season.
But Schmeichel is by no means a youngster. He may well have a baby face - similar to United legend Ole Gunnar Solskjaer - but he is actually 29-years-old. Of course, 29 isn't exactly old for a goalkeeper, but he's certainly nowhere near the standard of De Gea and four years older than his counterpart.
