United set to make move for £17m-rated Spurs star – report

Manchester United will make a summer move for Tottenham’s Hugo Lloris if David De Gea departs in the coming months, according to the Daily Mirror.

De Gea has yet to sign a contract extension at the club and there are growing fears he will leave to join Real Madrid this summer. He has one year left on his current deal so would be in a position to leave for free next summer if he stays at United for one more season.

That’s not something that the Red Devils will want as they could scoop as much as £30 million for their star performer, with Madrid expected to make a serious approach after the season ends.

If the 24-year-old Spaniard does depart, United will reportedly make a move for Spurs star Lloris. The Frenchman is one of Tottenham’s most important players but he wants to be playing in the Champions League, something the Lilywhites don’t look likely to offer again next term.

United are currently seven points ahead of Spurs in fourth place and look set to return to Europe’s elite competition next season and will hope that can lure Lloris to Old Trafford.

Paris Saint-Germain have also been linked with the 28-year-old French captain who has four years left on his current Spurs deal and is valued at £17.6 million by transfermarkt.co.uk.

De Gea could yet pen a new contract but talks have been ongoing for months now and there has been no resolution. With just four weeks of the Premier League season to go, time is running out for United to retain the services of their star man.

Would Hugo Lloris be a good replacement for David De Gea if he leaves the club this summer?
