Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are getting nervous heading into the summer after the Daily Mirror revealed they have earmarked Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris as their number one target, if they lose David De Gea.
The Spanish shot stopper has been considered as the Red Devils’ best player this season.
This strong form from the 24-year-old has led to huge interest from Real Madrid who are keen to sign him to replace the ageing Iker Casillas.
United are set to come under heavy pressure from Los Blancos as they are willing to do everything in their power to sign De Gea.
This has led to the officials at Old Trafford seeking another option as they risk losing the man who has kept their season together and given them the platform to be in the top four.
Lloris has made it no secret that he is keen to play in the Champions League, putting his Spurs future in doubt.
But if United sell De Gea for big money then Daniel Levy will be aware of their wealth and will make them pay over the odds for Spurs’ current number one.
