Kasper Schmeichel leaves Leicester City, but why? Report on the move of the goalkeepers to Nice

Kasper Schmeichel has signed a three-year deal to end his 11-year tenure at Leicester, and he is now officially a Nice player.

Schmeichel, a goalkeeper from Denmark, plays for both Ligue 1 side Nice and the Danish national team. His father, Peter Schmeichel, was a Manchester United legend and a goalkeeper for Denmark.

Before starting his career at Manchester City, he spent time on loan with Darlington, Bury and Falkirk before making his first appearance for the team.

Kasper Schmeichel leaves Leicester City, but why?

Kasper Schmeichel left Leicester City because he wanted a new challenge as he entered the final year of his contract with them. He is moving on to a new experience after more than ten years with the same group.

Due to a lack of transfer funds, the Foxes may have decided it was best to trade their Danish star. Considering Kasper has played football for his entire senior career in the UK, the France squad would be a fantastic place to mix things up.

Nice are set to compete in Europe this season after securing a place in the Conference League qualifiers, so the team also present an enticing option for former Leicester players.

The Danish goolie was the ideal choice for the France national team’s goalkeeping efforts following the departure of Walter Benitez.

According to claims cited by The Athletic, Danny Ward and Daniel Iversen are the only senior goalkeepers currently playing for Leicester.

Kasper Schmeichel transfer to Nice and salary update

Kasper Schmeichel is set to part ways with Leicester City for good. Since then, it looks like a deal has been reached for France’s Nice to buy the goalkeeper.

Within 24-48 hours, the Ligue 1 side will arrange a medical visit with the Danish player. As for the costs and the duration of the contract, the 35-year-old transferred player’s club gave no details.

At first, it was said that Leicester City would not receive compensation for the goalkeeper. French media, who say a settlement of around €1m plus bonuses have been reached, dispute this.

Schmeichel reportedly agreed to a three-year contract, according to Daily Mail. With 479 games played for the Foxes in 11 seasons, he is currently third on Leicester’s all-time appearances list.

The net worth of Kasper Schmeichel

Throughout his football career, Kasper Schmeichel has earned a total of $35 million in earnings. With Leicester City, he signed a five-year £33,800,000 contract which brought in an average annual income of £6,760,000.

After joining the Foxes in 2011 for £1.5million, the Denmark international made Leicester history, helping the side win the Premier League in 2016 and the FA Cup the previous year.

Danny Ward will now be the team’s starting goaltender following his departure. Before the transfer window closes, Leicester want to re-sign him.

Kasper has also represented the Club in all European competitions, including the UEFA Champions League, UEFA Europa League and UEFA Europa Conference League.
