Kasper Schmeichel is ready to spark a major transfer scramble between Manchester United and Man City after changing agent.
Leicester City number one Schmeichel is signing up with Italian Luca Bascherini who has strong links with Old Trafford in particular
Schmeichel, 30, dumped Kenny Shepherd, his long-term adviser, despite recently negotiating a massive new contract with the Foxes.
Now the Dane’s behind the scenes move could lead to a big transfer in the summer window, with both City and United on alert about his potential availability.
United, also linked with a £30million move for Joe Hart, will need a new keeper if David De Gea makes the move to Real Madrid.
Schmeichel is now high on boss Jose Mourinho’s shortlist of potential replacements.
But City like their former youth team keeper and there is also the intriguing possibility of Joe Hart being offered to Leicester in exchange.
Schmeichel seemed settled with the Foxes when he committed his future but this latest dramatic switch points to a change in the summer.
