After scooping Sir Matt Busby’s Player of the Year prize at Manchester United for the last two seasons in a row, it is deeply upsetting for Red Devils fans that they look like parting with their star keeper David De Gea this summer.
As the world has become accustomed to in the modern era, when Real Madrid decide to publicly pursue a player, they usually get their way and unfortunately for United and Louis van Gaal, David De Gea is their number one target this summer.
With a move back to De Gea’s home city looking like a formality, van Gaal will have a big decision to make regarding just who will resume the position as his first choice stopper between the sticks next season.
If you believe what you read in the press, the likes of the Daily Star reported this past week that United are poised to set their sights on landing Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris as a like-for-like replacement for their Spanish international keeper.
Most Red Devils fans in the bar agree that their pain at losing De Gea would be immediately lessened somewhat via the signing of French international Lloris who for the past couple of seasons now has remained in the world class bracket despite Spurs’ struggles at getting into the Champions League.
While United have previously eventually managed to prise the likes of Michael Carrick and Dimitar Berbatov away from White Hart Lane, Tottenham won’t want to part with Lloris so easily and if Daniel Levy decides to dig his heels this summer, van Gaal will have to go back to the drawing board.
This is why we’ve come up with a list of five Lloris alternatives that United may have to consider this summer.
