PETER SCHMEICHEL has claimed that his son, Kasper, was on the verge of joining Bayern Munich.
The Manchester United legend revealed the information during an appearance on live television.
Speaking ahead of Bayern’s Champions League clash against PSG, Peter told CBS Sports Golazo: “It could have been my son [playing against PSG].
“On they very same day that they signed Sommer they were also in talks with my son.”
Bayern were in the market for a new goalkeeper in the January transfer window following an injury to Manuel Neuer.
It seems as though their options were dwindled down to two, Yann Sommer and Kasper Schmeichel.
In the end, the Bundesliga giants opted for the Borussia Mönchengladbach stopper over the former Leicester City star.
This meant that Schmeichel will see out the season with Ligue 1 side Nice, along with other former Premier League stars such as Ross Barkley and Aaron Ramsey.
While Sommer played his part in Bayern’s 1-0 victory over PSG at the Parc des Princes.
After a poor start in France, Nice and Schmeichel have surged back up the Ligue 1 table, with five wins in their last six league games.

During this run, the 36-year-old has only conceded two goals.
Schmeichel had only joined the French side last summer after he left Leicester City following the expiry of his contract.
