Denmark manager hails Kasper Schmeichel as one of the best
Denmark head coach Age Hareide believes Kasper Schmeichel is among the top three goalkeepers in the world after starring for his nation at the recent World Cup. The Leicester City ace was the standout performer for the Danes at the tournament with two clean sheets but he could not help the team progress beyond the round of 16 after a penalty shoot-out defeat to Croatia.
Since the end of the World Cup, Schmeichel has been constantly linked with a move to Chelsea with the Blues supposedly eyeing a new goalkeeper to replace Thibaut Courtois. Nevertheless, there appear more chances of the Dane staying put with Leicester reluctant to lose his services after the departure of Riyad Mahrez to Manchester City earlier in July.
Leicester begin their Premier League campaign with an away trip to Manchester United but before that, the club will be hoping to restrict potential offers for their star players. Aside from Schmeichel, Harry Maguire has also been associated with a probable exit after starring for England at the World Cup but the Foxes are likewise expected to knock back offers. Maguire is presently of interest to Manchester United.
