Former Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel has been discussing his son’s future, which may not be at the King Power Stadium…
Peter revealed that Hull City had already had an £1.25M offer for Kasper Schmeichel turned down by Leicester, but had come back with an improved bid: “Hull have filed two officials bids, and they have a super manager, Steve Bruce, who is one of my best friends.
He has known Kasper since he was three and a half years old. And Kasper and Alex, Steve’s son, have played together and grew up together.
How this ends, is under the control of Kasper, his club and his agent. It will not be easy for him to leave, because he is at a club that definitely will not let go of him. It is interesting to follow this, and I stand on the sidelines as a very proud father.”
Although it seems as though Peter would love to see his son at Hull, we would hate to lose such a great goalkeeping talent.
Whether he can be persuaded to spend another year in the Championship remains to be seen. Swansea City are also thought to be in the hunt for the man voted the division’s best keeper last season.
