The Lowdown: Strakosha profiled
The 27-year-old recently left Lazio after his contract expired at the end of June. The Albania international made a whopping 208 appearances for the Serie A club, keeping 62 clean sheets and winning four trophies.
The Latest: Strakosha move close
Peters took to Twitter on Saturday afternoon to provide an update on Strakosha.
He claimed that United are ‘closing in on a deal’ for the goalkeeper following talks with his representatives, with the Albanian set to fill the void left by Dean Henderson, who joined Nottingham Forest on loan.
The Verdict: Positive signs
Although he will likely play second fiddle to David de Gea, the Albnian will bring plenty of knowledge and experience at the highest level and should be an adequate backup option to the Spaniard.
United recently made Tyrell Malacia their first summer signing and also appear to be close to landing Christian Eriksen on a three-year deal, so this update on Strakosha is just another sign that the rebuild under Erik ten Hag is finally starting to fall into place, with multiple moves in the pipeline.
