AC Milan interested in Kasper Schmeichel

[one_fourth last=”no”]File:AC Milan.svg[/one_fourth]According to the Daily Mirror newspaper in England, AC Milan are keen on signing Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel. He is the son of legendary Manchester United and Denmark shot-stopper Peter Schmeichel and with his contract due to expire in the summer, Milan are hoping to snap up the keeper in a cut price deal.

New AC Milan manager Clarence Seedorf has earmarked a goalkeeper as his number one priority in the January transfer window. Seedorf is hoping to revolutionise Milan and he feels club legend and veteran goalie Christian Abbiati may be past his best form, he is hoping to bring in Schmeichel now so he can at least gain some experience at the San Siro before taking over full-time from Abbiati next season.

Seedorf is aware that Schmeichel’s contract is expiring and he knows that if the goalkeeper doesn’t leave the Foxes in this current transfer window for the i Rossoneri , then a lot of clubs will be scrambling for his signature in the summer when he is a free agent.

Schmeichel began his career in 2004 with English giants Manchester City, impressing often in the few times he was picked for them. City loaned him out to 5 different clubs in the UK before selling him to Notts County in 2009, the Magpies breaking their transfer fee record to reunite Schmeichel with his former Manchester City manager, Sven-Göran Eriksson, who had recently been appointed as Director of Football at Notts County.

He spent one season with Leeds between 2010–2011 before moving to the Foxes, he has gone on to make 118 league appearances for Leicester and he is regarded by many as the best keeper plying his trade in England outside of the Premier League.

Kasper Schmeichel has represented his country, making 2 senior appearances for Denmark but he is their second choice goalkeeper behind Stephan Andersen of Real Betis. He has also featured for Denmark Under-19’s, Under-20’s and he scooped up 17 Under-21 caps between 2007-2008.
