​Man City and Man Utd set to battle it out for Schmeichel

Both Manchester City and Manchester United are hunting Leicester City goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel, according to The Sun.

It is believed that a change in Schmeichel's camp has led to the possibility of the 30-year old Dane departing the Foxes.

Schmeichel recently parted ways with his long time advisor Kenny Shepherd, and his replacement, Luca Basherini, is reported to have close ties to Manchester United.

The Red Devils will be looking for a replacement if David De Gea finally heads off to Real Madrid, and Schmeichel has proven himself to be a winner and a leader, especially during Leicester's miraculous title win last year.
