Man United legend Peter tells Chelsea Schmeichel wants Leicester exit
Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel has claimed son Kasper could quit Leicester because he is not happy under manager Claude Puel.
Schmeichel has become one of he most highly-regarded managers in the Premier League for Leicester and was imperative to their historic Premier League win just a few seasons ago, which put the likes of Chelsea, Manchester United and Arsenal all on high alert for his services.
But despite all the speculation Schmeichel decided to stay at Leicester, something he may be regretting now as he is not happy with how things are going under boss Puel, and now the Premier League giants will be back on alert after United legend Schmeichel admitted his son could leave.
Peter Schmeichel told BeIN Sports: “Leicester City are a really good football club. They’ve got good players they just don’t have the manager who can get the best out of them.
“Once they get everything sorted out — and I leave it to you to interpret what that means — you’ll see Leicester maybe in fifth to eighth place where they belong.
“Of course he wants to challenge himself like any other player. But I don’t think he wants to go to Europe. I think he loves England too much, I think he likes the Premier League too much, so it’s a difficult one.”
Do we need Schmeichel?
Kepa has done a decent job so far this season and is definitely the future of the club, so making a move for the big Danish star is not a priority for the club in the summer window.
However, the young Spaniard could learn something from Schmeichel and having him in the squad, for the right price, could be a smart move for the club as he is a top Premier League performer.
