Claudio Ranieri has said that Liverpool cannot sign Kasper Schmeichel.

One of the weirdest transfer rumours in recent years is the story that Liverpool want Leicester City’s Kasper Schmeichel. Very odd indeed, especially when you consider the Premier League champion is already 28 years old and cannot be classified as ‘one for the future.’
