Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel prefers to sign Son Heung-min
Peter Schmeichel has revealed that he would like to see Son Heung-min make the move to Manchester United.
The Manchester United legend has played alongside some of the best players to don the Red Shirt.
The former Danish star took to Twitter to answer a number of questions from fans. One such query revolved around a realistic target he would like United to sign.
Schmeichel had no qualms in naming Tottenham Hotspur star Son Heung-min as his desired choice. The South Korean is easily one of the best players in the league. He is currently the only Asian player to have scored 50 or more goals in the Premier League.
Capable of playing anywhere along the front line, the 27-year-old is a strong presence and is hard to pin down. He also has considerable experience in the Premier League, having made 151 appearances so far.
A smart player who links up well with his teammates, Schmeichel has done well to choose the player as his preference. Although Harry Kane takes the plaudits for his prolific scoring record, adding Son to our squad should make us more of an unpredictable entity.
The Dane’s answer got a number of replies from United fans. Most of them agreed with his call and feel the South Korean superstar would be an excellent addition.
A few did, however, also take the mickey out of the question by saying that Schemichel’s son plays for Leicester City. Let it not be said that football fans have no sense of humour.
It would be a dream to see a player of Son’s quality play alongside the likes of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial. Throw Bruno Fernandes into the equation and the prospect is truly drool-worthy.
