Recently, David De Gea is actively criticized for his unusual mistakes and conceding many goals. Manchester United seems to be looking for the alternative and considering Kasper Schmeichel for his replacement.
This season, the game of Manchester United’s main goalkeeper, David de Gea, has caused a lot of discussions. Part of the fans believes that he is no longer as convincing as he was in previous years. That is why the team often concedes goals at an unnecessary moment.
For example, the legendary Alan Shearer thinks that the “Red Assassins” should replace him. Roy Keane also criticized the Spanish goalkeeper. On the other hand, according to Paul Scholes, without him, the team could not even be in the top ten in the Premier League.
David de Gea has also been defended by the Leicester goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, saying he is still a world-class goalkeeper. Now the publication GOAL reports that Schmeichel is the goalkeeper who is planned to be brought to Manchester United, and he should replace the current number one.
According to the above source, the bosses of the Manchester club are seriously considering a change of goalkeeper, and their main candidate is Kasper Schmeichel.
De Gea has been defending the dignity of the “Red Devils” since 2011. The English giants bought him from Atletico Madrid for 25 million. His current contract expires on June 30, 2023. As for the 33-year-old Schmeichel, his transfer value, according to Transfermarkt, is 9.5 million, and his contract, like de Gea, expires at the end of the 2023 season.
Recall that Kasper’s father, Peter Schmeichel, defended the honor of Manchester United in 1991-1999. He spent the 2002–03 season in Manchester City, which was strongly criticized by Reds fans. It is noteworthy that he has never lost a Manchester derby to any team. And now, after a 21-year hiatus, another Schmeichel will keep the door of United.
