De Gea has gradually lost Solskjaer’s confidence and the Manchester United coach has started looking for a relief for him, a goalkeeper of guarantees to enter competition with the Spanish goalkeeper, who no longer convinces the Norwegian coach. Solskjaer needs a safeguarding goalkeeper to meet the Premier League challenge as well as his return to the Champions League next season. As it advances The Sun, United have already found a competitor for De Gea and that is none other than the Danish Kasper Schmeichel.
The Danish goalkeeper, 33, contracted at Leicester City until June 30, 2023, is the chosen one. Son of Peter Schmeichel the legend of Manchester United, who defended the goal between 1991 and 1999, It is a good, nice option and not too expensive for the team that coaches Solskjaer. Above all, much more affordable than Oblak, the goalkeeper that the Old Trafford club dreams of … and half of Europe, since the Atlético goalkeeper has a high rescission clause.
De Gea has seen in just a year how his numbers were improving while his sports price fell in the eyes of Solskjaer although his renewal, signed a year ago, made him the highest-paid footballer on the roster, with a salary that exceeded 15 million euros net.
The signing of Kasper Schmeicher seems to be necessary for United since the second goalkeeper, youth academy Dean Henderson, 23, is still at the “rookie” level, according to the English newspaper.
Solskjaer does not hide that he likes Kasper Schmeichel to replace De Gea. His good performances with Leicester City and his contribution to achieving the Premier title in 2016 and when the English team reached the quarterfinals of the Champions League three years ago.
