Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has admitted he is watching David De Gea’s situation at Manchester United closely and confirmed he’s keen to test himself in the Champions League, according to reports.


De Gea has just one year left on his deal at United and with no sign of an extension being agreed any time soon, he’s been strongly tipped to return to Spain and join Real Madrid this summer.

Louis van Gaal has admitted he’s already identified a list of potential replacements for the 24-year-old and if reports are to be believed, Hugo Lloris is among the Dutchman’s top targets.

The French international has been outstanding for Tottenham since joining the club from Lyon in 2012 and the 28-year-old has now confirmed that he’s watching the goalkeeping situation at Old Trafford closely and revealed that he’s keen to test himself in the Champions League.

When quizzed about a potential move to United, Lloris told reporters:

“For the moment there is a goalkeeper at United and we are watchful of his situation.

“You have to keep a certain calm with all this. If things should happen then they’ll happen naturally.”

“I think every player wants to play this competition because it’s a high level and we work for that, we work every day for that and I hope to get there and there’s a chance in my career to play Champions League.”

I’m sure United will do all they can to persuade De Gea to remain at Old Trafford for at least another season but if they are forced to cash-in on the Spaniard, then Lloris would be a fine replacement.

The French skipper was Tottenham’s most consistent performer once again last season as he led them to a fifth-placed finish in the Premier League and he certainly has the talent to be playing for one of Europe’s elite clubs.

However, he’s still contracted to White Hart Lane until 2019 and I’m sure Daniel Levy won’t let him go without a fight, so United will have to come up with a tempting offer to persuade Spurs to sell, if van Gaal does end up making a formal move for the keeper this summer.
