BREAKING: Manchester United must spend £30 million by January to bring in a new goalkeeper

The Manchester United football team is eager to bolster its present roster when the transfer market opens in January, so that is something they will absolutely keep in mind.

The Premier League’s biggest clubs were quite busy during the summer transfer window, spending a lot of money to strengthen their roster by bringing in Mason Mount, Rasmus Hojlund, and Andre Onana.

However, new goalkeeper Andre Onana has struggled for the majority of this season and after conceding up to 33 goals so far, Manchester United are on the lookout for a new goalkeeper.

And if reports are anything to go by, then Manchester United football club have been linked with a transfer move for experienced Lazio goalkeeper Ivan Provedel.

The 29-year-old Italy International, who signed up for Lazio after departing Spezia back in 2022 has been an important member of the first-team squad over the past two seasons.

The experienced goalkeeper was hugely involved for Serie A side Lazio football club during the 2022/2023 football season where he made 45 appearances in all competitions.

Ivan Provedel has also started the ongoing 2023/2024 season on a strong note, scoring one goal in the 18 appearances he has made in all competitions for Lazio football club.

His excellent performances between the sticks is believed to have caught the attention of Manchester United football club and according to reports from Transfer News Live, the Premier League side want to sign him.

The reports further claimed that Serie A side Lazio are very much aware of Manchester United’s interest in Ivan Provedel and have told the Premier League side to pay £30million transfer fee for him.

Manchester United goalkeeper Andre Onana has struggled to make key saves so far this season and manager Erik ten Hag has now identified the experienced Ivan Provedel as a needed addition to his squad.

But with Lazio demanding for £30million to offload the experienced goalkeeper, it remains to be seen if Manchester United football club will pay the needed fee in order to sign Ivan Provedel next year.
