Manchester United backed to sign this Premier League goalkeeper

Former Manchester United keeper Mark Bosnich has backed the club’s move to sign Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel this summer.

The Foxes first-choice goalie is the son of club legend Peter Schmeichel who enjoyed enormous success at the club and was part of our 1992 treble-winning team.

Bosnich feels the player is good enough to follow in the footsteps of his father in playing for the Red devils.

“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,” Bosnich told Sky Sports.

“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 Solskjaer 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 couple 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.”
