Peter Schmeichel admits it would be a dream if son Kasper followed in his footsteps and played for Manchester United.

Schmeichel senior spent eight incredibly successful years at Old Trafford and although he would be happy to see his son join United, the great Dane insists that there is no need for Kasper to quit Leicester.

The Foxes stopper has been tipped as a potential replacement for David De Gea, should the Spaniard head to Real Madrid this summer, but Peter Schmeichel is confident that Leicester can once again challenge at the top end of the Premier League.

He told Talksport Radio City: “It would be a dream. For me, trying to be as neutral and unbiased and not like a father, I think he has done well enough to convince everybody that he can play at the highest level.

“The doubts were there when he first went into the Premier League over whether he was good enough, but he proved that and in the Champions League last year I thought he did really well.

“If clubs need a really good goalkeeper, well he is somebody who can be trusted to do that.

“Having said that, I am crazy about Leicester, I am crazy about the owners – they are fantastic and really good for the Premier League.

“There is no shortage of will and money to make Leicester a top four club, or at least top six, top eight. They are prepared to do that and that is a really interesting environment to play football in.

“There is no Kasper needs to move kind of feel at the moment, but if an opportunity like that [moving to United] came around, that would be fantastic.”
