The Premier League is just six weeks away and you get the feeling even David de Gea doesn’t know what’s happening with Manchester United’s goalkeeping situation.
Dean Henderson is waiting in the wings for his chance, but former United goalkeeper, Mark Bosnich, believes there’s a better candidate for the role.
No, not himself…
Since he’s won the Premier League previously, it’s not the worst shout, but I can’t see Manchester United signing Kasper Schmeichel this summer.
“When he’s playing well, he’s as good as any goalkeeper in the Premier League,” Bosnich told Sky Sports, as cited by the Daily Star.
“He’s won a title with Leicester, he’s been very consistent at international Lebel for quite some time as well.
“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 this best which is more regular than not, Kasper Schmeichel is as good as anyone in the Premier League.”
