Tottenham Hotspur fans are rolling their eyes at more talk about Hugo Lloris here in the Football Transfer Tavern as ESPN have claimed that the goalkeeper will be staying at the club despite craving Champions League football.
As one of our punters notes, we really don’t blame the player for wanting a crack at the biggest competition in domestic football and frankly, we think he is certainly good enough to deserve one, but for now it seems Spurs fans can breathe a sigh of relief.
Louis van Gaal’s Manchester United have been linked with a move for the France international in the summer, as a potential replacement for David De Gea if he leaves.
Pochettino claimed: ‘He is happy here and wants to reach the Champions League with Tottenham.’
Now we think the sentiments from the manager are nice enough, but in reality, the likelihood of the goalkeeper staying at a club that are failing to get Champions League over and over again as the best years of his career go past are slim in our eyes.
