Tottenham: Possible Hugo Lloris replacement could be nearing exit door as Man United consider transfer swoop (Video)

Olympique de Marseille stopper and Tottenham Hotspur transfer target Steve Mandanda has been tipped for the exit door at the Stade Velodrome.

The French stopper—who plays second fiddle to Hugo Lloris in the Bleus national team—has been rumoured to be in consideration to replace his compatriot at White Hart Lane.

The Mirror reported at the end of June that Mauricio Pochettino has identified the 30-year-old guardsman as the ideal replacement for Lloris.

The Metro reported in June that the keeper had permission to complete a £17.8 million transfer to Old Trafford, although it remains to be seen whether a recent broken wrist may put paid to a move.

Should Lloris complete his move to Old Trafford, Mandanda may be drafted in as a replacement.

La Provence [as per Le 10 Sport] report that the future of the OM captain is far from certain, particularly considering the fact the 30-year-old only has one year left on his contract.

The Phoceens’ financial concerns may also lead to Mandanda’s exit, with the club understood to be prepared to offload the player and his considerable wage packet.

Mandanda-while a class act-was guilty of a blunder or two in Ligue 1 last term, not least this Gerrard-esque slip that cost OM valuable points in their failed chase for a Champions League spot.
