Report: Leicester furious with want-away Schmeichel

Date published: Wednesday 3rd May 2017 10:35

Leicester City are believed to be furious with Kasper Schmeichel, who they think is trying to engineer a move away from the club.

The 30-year-old keeper has been told by the club’s Thai owners that he is not for sale and to valuable an asset to offload.

The Premier League champions made Schmeichel their highest-paid player ever last summer on a deal worth over £100,000 a week for five years.

He still has four years of that contract to run and after swapping agents from Kenneth Shepherd to Italian Luca Bascherini suggestions are that he wants to swap clubs too.

Bascherini was involved in Luis Nani and Patrice Evra’s moves to Manchester United and the Old Trafford club have been linked with a summer move for Schmeichel.

And Leicester are believed to be fuming that Schmeichel has decided to move on after winning the title last season.

The club’s Thai owners feel “let down”, according to the Daily Mirror. But Schmeichel, who has 13 clean sheets from 37 games in all competitions this season, is determined to leave even though his contract does not include a buy-out clause.

His former club Man City are also interested, while Liverpool and Everton have also been linked with his services, despite Schmeichel being hindered by a groin problem this season.
