Man Utd Hold Initial Talks With Tottenham Star, Player Open To Summer Move

By on April 29, 2015

As the opening of the summer transfer window approaches, managers are working hard identifying targets and lining-up potential deals so we’ll bring you all the news and gossip. Today, Man Utd are linked with Hugo Lloris….

Hugo Lloris is open to a move to Old Trafford this summer after Manchester United held talks with the Tottenham ace about being David De Gea’s potential replacement, according to ESPN.

De Gea has been United’s most consistent player over the past two year’s but his future is in serious doubt as he’s set to enter the final year of his contract and terms are yet to be agreed over an extension.

The Spaniard has been strongly linked with a move to Real Madrid with reports this week suggesting that the European champions are increasingly confident they’ll get their man at the end of the season.

United remain hopeful of tying their No.1 down to a new deal but understandably they are also anxious about losing such an important player so are making contingency plans in-case he does refuse to sign a new contract.

According to ESPN, United have already held initial talks with Tottenham Hotspur keeper Hugo Lloris and the player has indicated he’s open to making the move to Old Trafford.

Lloris has been in excellent form for the North Londoners since joining from Lyon in 2012 but the report suggests he’s informed Spurs he’s keen to play in the Champions League and is now awaiting developments with the De Gea situation.

Obviously it would be a real blow if United are forced to sell De Gea to Madrid but the longer he goes without signing a new deal, the more likely it looks he’ll be heading back to his homeland, leaving a huge void to fill.

However, if would be a great piece of business if the Red Devils were able to bring in Lloris as a replacement. At 28, he’s at the prime of his career and he’s been right up there with De Gea as one of the most consistent keepers in the Premier League over the past few seasons.

    Says who? Exactly, I mean! Did the story originate with ESPN? Did they name any sources? Did they provide any direct quotes?
    I’d suggest the answers will be:
    No-one; No; No; No.

    If United have directly contacted Lloris it is called ‘tapping-up’!

    All there has been to generate one story copying another story copying another story on t’Internet is one media source, initially surmising that Lloris will want to leave Spurs because they won’t be in the CL. And this is then tied in to rumour of interest from Real Madrid for de Gea – that seems to be every bit as much surmised. A buy-out clause was invented from thin-air, and then it had been comprehensively refuted the media sources just got back surmising and then made some other stuff up. Unless, of course, you can provide sources and quotes.

    Cheap, lazy journalism.

    We appear to back to the days when M.utd supporters seem to believe that they can get anyone they want, the arrogance returns.
    Levy will not sell to M.Utd as amply demonstrated when they offered more for Bale than RM, Levy refused to sell to them because of the disgusting way in which they got Berbatov
    If Lloris goes, and there is always a chance he will, he will go back to France I all probability.

    Absolute total Bullspit! Firstly, Spurs, after Carrick and Berba, will never transfer a star to Manure again. If Manure have talked to Llorus’ agent against Spurs wishes it is tampering and Levy will take appropriate action! No way is Hugo going anywhere next year except WHL!

    Why can’t Manchester United retain De Gea in goal? What is he not convinced about? A better campaign by Liverpool this first season without Sanchez, and by Tottenham Hotspur in Pochettino’s first season, and Manchester United would not have managed to get (as now looks likely) fourth place in the Premier League. United this season have been unconvincing.
