Manchester United legend Peter Schmeichel admits he would love Tottenham star Heung-min Son to join the Red Devils. Schmeichel was speaking ahead of Tottenham’s trip to Old Trafford on Wednesday night. Son was named in the Spurs starting XI as Jose Mourinho went for his fourth straight win as Tottenham manager.
Mourinho has had an immediate impact on several players in the Tottenham squad, including Son.
And it is the South Korea star who Schmeichel admitted he is a big fan of.
“I would love to see him [at Old Trafford],” the former goalkeeper said on Amazon Prime Video.
“Yeah I know [there’s quite a few I would have from Spurs].

Alli scored three and assisted two more in Mourinho’s first three games in charge at Spurs.
And Mourinho says he cannot ask for any more from the England international.
“Now I don’t need to speak about him because everyone speaks and speaks so well,” he said.
“I think it’s better for him to listen to it and to realise that people love him when he plays in the way he is doing.
“The best thing that can happen to a coach is when you don’t need to speak about a player because everybody speaks, all of you, fans, everybody speaks about him and speaks about him for the right reasons.
“He’s playing really, really, really well. I couldn’t ask for any more from him.
“He’s playing amazing, scoring goals, assisting, working, fantastic.”
