MANCHESTER UNITED are set to miss out on Thomas Strakosha with the goalkeeper on the verge of completing a move to Brentford, according to reports.
Strakosha, 27, left Lazio at the end of June and targeted a Premier League transfer.
United were keen on the Albania international and identified him as a replacement for Dean Henderson who has joined Nottingham Forest on loan.
The Red Devils held talks with Strakosha but the keeper has chosen Brentford instead, reports Fabrizio Romano.
The transfer guru claims an agreement has been reached between the two parties with Strakosha now undergoing a medical.
Strakosha is also believed to have attracted the attention of Chelsea, Leicester and Fulham, with the latter now likely to move for Arsenal’s Bern Leno.
