But as reported by Goal, the Danish ace "will do anything to get to Old Trafford" according to his former City teammate Bischoff.
He told Ekstra Bladet: “United will certainly not be deterred by his [Schmeichel's] age of 33 years.
"The most successful goalkeepers at the club in recent years have been well into their thirties. He can easily play three or four good years there.
“Schmeichel is a huge United fan. He always has been and always will be, it will be the biggest dream come true if he were to succeed [in joining United].
“If Kasper gets the opportunity to play just ten games for United, then he jumps.
"It’s simply so big for him. He is such a big fan that he will do anything to get to that club.”
The 2016 title winner, 33, would be relatively cheap to buy compared to Atletico Madrid’s highly-rated Jan Oblak, 27, who has a release clause of around £109million.Most read in FootballRORY'S BIRDIEWho is Rory McIlroy's wife Erica Stoll?

SunSport understands United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has doubts over whether Henderson, 23, is ready for the top job, despite a stellar season on loan at Sheffield United.
And De Gea has made a number of high-profile errors this season, giving away cheap goals against Tottenham, Everton and Watford.

Man Utd star Dean Henderson’s uncle wins £12,500 off £25 bet on him playing for England placed when he was just 14
DEAN HENDERSON’S uncle has raked in £12,500 off a £25 bet after the Manchester United star made his England debut.
Henderson, 23, came on at half-time in the 3-0 win against the Republic of Ireland earlier this month.2Dean Henderson's uncle won £12,500 from a nine-year-old £25 bet on his first England capCredit: EPA
And uncle Martin Plunkett was able to collect a tasty sum of cash after putting £25 on odds of 500/1 for Henderson to win a Three Lions cap when the goalkeeper was just 14 years old.
Henderson’s mum and gran also picked up £2,500 after each betting £50 following his move from Carlisle to Old Trafford in 2011.
Plunkett told the Mirror: “I haven’t spoken to Dean about the bet but he did text after game last Thursday to tell his mother, ‘Have we all got the money?’

“We told him we got confirmation from William Hill that the bet was aright so yeah, he was chuffed for us. He’s a good lad, he deserves it.”
But following his England cap, it now remains to be seen if Henderson remains at United in January.
He has played just three times since returning from a two-year loan at Sheffield United, and is yet to make his Premier League bow.
SunSport understands Henderson is eager for a loan this winter as he looks to retain his place in Gareth Southgate’s squad for the Euros.

However, United are reluctant to let Henderson go with Sergio Romero already set to leave.
And Ole Gunnar Solskjaer continues to insist Henderson still has a major role to play this term after impressing in training.
Speaking ahead of Tuesday’s Champions League clash with Istanbul Basaksehir, Solskjaer said: “Dean wants to stay at United and play for United.
“I can’t see the logic in only one potential appearance left before Christmas. Do you know how many games we’ve got?2Man Utd's biggest transfers ever, both in and out, including Ronaldo
“I disagree completely that tomorrow is make-or-break for Dean. He’s come back in, he’s training really well, he’s maturing, he’s had some games.
“He’s training with one of the best goalies in the world [David De Gea], he has got the potential to be one of the best, it’s great competition between them.
“So I don’t buy that argument it’s make or break. And it’s not up to me to keep everyone happy.
“The performances will always be the deciding factor if you play or not. I think every position you play for United, it’s your duty to make me and the coaches happy, so then there’s a bigger chance you can pay next time.”Solskjaer says sometimes the points are more important than the performance as he calls Man Utd's performance way below par
