HYS: Can Schmeichel fill De Gea’s void?

According to reports from Sky Sports, Manchester City and Manchester United are both keen on signing Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel this summer.

The 24-cap Danish international was nothing short of immense as the Foxes unexpectedly lifted last season’s title and he’s one of the few Leicester players who’ve managed to maintain their level of form from 2015/16, making 83 saves in 25 Premier League outings this season.

City are reportedly eyeing their former starlet, who rose through the academy ranks at the Etihad Stadium before leaving for Leeds United and subsequently the east Midlands outfit, but Sky Sports claim he’s now the Red Devils’ first choice to replace David De Gea – should he leave for long-term admirers Real Madrid as expected.

So, United fans, does Schmeichel have what it takes to fill De Gea’s world-class void, or should Jose Mourinho be shopping elsewhere for successors to his current No.1? Let us know by voting below…
