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.

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.
