sport news Man United 'plot sensational move to sign Kasper Schmeichel'

are reportedly weighing up a move to bring Kasper Schmeichel, the son of club legend Peter, to Old Trafford this summer.

The Leicester City goalkeeper is said to have appeared among the list of targets for the Red Devils, as they look to address a worrying situation between the sticks.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and the United chiefs have now turned their attention to Schmeichel, 33, who could provide the best value buy for a goalkeeper this summer, according to the Sun.

Schmeichel started his career coming through the youth ranks at United's rivals Manchester City, before going on to sign for Notts County and then Leeds United.
