Peter Schmeichel says Leicester City striker Jamie Vardy wouldn’t fit into the Manchester United side.

The Foxes star set a new Premier League record after he scored in his 11th successive game to give Claudio Ranieri’s side a first-half lead against the Red Devils at King Power Stadium.

Germany international Bastian Schweinsteiger rescued a point for the visitors in a 1-1 draw after his header beat Schmeichel’s son Kasper on the stroke of half-time on Saturday evening.

Vardy has been linked with a move to defending Premier League champions Chelsea and Van Gaal’s United side after having scored 14 goals in 14 games this season.
But former United goalkeeper Schmeichel doesn’t believe Vardy would be a good signing for the 20-time English champions.

“I don’t think he would fit in,” Schmeichel told Sky Sports.

“I’d love to see Jamie Vardy move on and become stronger and play for England and start for England, but even that is a debate.

“This is the top scorer in England in the Premier League. He has just beaten this incredible record. He has just beaten Ruud van Nistelrooy, who is an unbelievable goalscorer and you are having the debate of should he play for England?

“Of course he should, but that’s the kind of player he is. Would he fit into Van Gaal’s way of thinking or Wenger’s?”

United are a point behind joint leaders Manchester City and Leicester following Saturday evening’s stalemate.
