MANCHESTER UNITED are weighing up a shock move for Kasper Schmeichel to replace David De Gea as No 1 next season.
Leicester ace Schmeichel is seen as a ready-made option to come in, with De Gea suffering a huge slump in form and loan star Dean Henderson still at rookie level.3Man Utd want legend Peter Schmeichel's son Kasper, pictured here as a kidCredit: Action Images - Reuters 3NINTCHDBPICT000595230077Credit: Reuters
Schmeichel, son of Old Trafford legend Peter, still has three years left on his King Power deal.
But the 2016 title winner, 33, would be relatively cheap to buy compared to Atletico Madrid’s highly-rated Jan Oblak, 27, who has a release clause of around £109million.
SunSport understands United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has doubts over whether Henderson, 23, is ready for the top job, despite a stellar season on loan at Sheffield United.
And the Norwegian can no longer offer his blind support to error-prone De Gea, 29.
The Spaniard’s stats are understood to show a steady decline in his performances.
Solskjaer is desperate for a trusted keeper as he prepares for a Prem challenge and the club’s return to the Champions League next season.
Solskjaer has already sat down with his staff over the past few weeks to study in detail De Gea’s numbers over the past few years.

And Solskjaer cannot at this stage tell the player he will be the undoubted No1.
With a place in next summer’s Euros on his mind, Henderson is keen to be assured of regular first-team action to stay in Gareth Southgate’s plans.
Schmeichel has proved a consistent performer and starred during Leicester’s run to the Champions League quarter-finals three years ago.Most read in FootballPicturedSOR SUBJECTNeymar's ex-girlfriend Soraja Vucelic almost pops out of dress in steamy selfieWEATHER THE STORMHow Kieron Dyer ended up at Mayweather's mansion with 'women everywhere'Live BlogARSENAL 2 CHELSEA 1Auba scores twice as Gunners WIN FA Cup against banged-up BluesWHAT A TWITChelsea confuse themselves with Liverpool in FA Cup final social media gaffePicturedTOP FORMBrazil icon Ronaldo soaks up sun with partner Celina Locks on yacht in FormenteraPicturedNEMAN-EY TALKSInside Matic's plush private jet as Man Utd star goes on holiday with family
And with seven years’ experience in goal for Denmark, he could provide the solution to United’s problem position.
His arrival would mean Solskjaer not having to worry about his goalkeeper on a weekly basis.
And it would allow United to look at selling De Gea, clearing his £375,000-a-week wages off their payroll — and also give them more time to make a decision on Henderson.

Kris Kobach projected to lose Kansas primary, despite backing from Peter Thiel
Decision Desk is projecting that Rep. Roger Marshall will win the Republican primary for Senate in Kansas, a huge blow to contender Kris Kobach. It’s also a blow to the political ambitions of billionaire tech investor Peter Thiel, who had enthusiastically supported Kobach, offering public support and significant PAC funding to the candidate’s primary bid.
Much of Thiel’s support came through the Free Forever Political Action Committee, which received the overwhelming majority of its funding from Thiel and purchased ads exclusively in support of Kobach and in opposition to Marshall. One recent Free Forever PAC mailing accused Marshall of funding “global warming musicals” and “transgender plays” because of his votes in support of the National Endowment for the Arts.
Kobach has distinguished himself within Republican circles with his hardline anti-immigration positions, particularly his role in promoting a Muslim registry in the early days of the Trump administration. As a result, many party leaders feared he would cost the party in a general election. Last week, a leader from the National Republican Senatorial Committee warned colleagues that a Kobach victory could doom the party’s chances for retaining control of the Senate, as reported by Politico.
