Old Trafford side chase Spurs star.
Man United are reportedly preparing a move for Tottenham keeper Hugo Lloris as a potential replacement for David de Gea though the Daily Star claim that the north London side will demand £40m for the French international.
Current Old Trafford starter de Gea has been linked with a move back to the Spanish capital, having left Atletico Madrid for Man United back in 2011, and boss Louis van Gaal has earmarked a move for Lloris.
Mauricio Pochettino would be loathed to lose Lloris, arguably one of his most consistent performers, though the Spurs boss does have Michel Vorm on hand to offer a solid option should they fail to keep hold of the former Lyon man.
The possibility of Lloris moving to Man United is perhaps heightened by the fact that the White Hart Lane custodian is said to be keen on securing the Champions League action his current side have been unable to secure in recent seasons.
Pochettino’s side are highly unlikely to secure a top four finish and the Argentine manager may well feel this could lead to Lloris’s future at the club becoming uncertain.
