This one looks like it could run and run. Spurs fans awoke this morning to the claims that Manchester United have been in contact with Hugo Lloris to make clear that they wish to sign him if David De Gea leaves the club.
With Iker Casillas looking ever more vulnerable at Real Madrid, the chances of the Spanish giants making a move for De Gea looks ever more likely. So will Lloris be his replacement? Tottenham supporters seem sceptical, but then we would do wouldn’t we?

David De Gea has a year left on his deal, Lloris (2019) + Lyon get 10% of the fee. Good luck getting Hugo for less than you sell DDG. #THFC

Don’t really buy these Lloris stories. De Gea hasn’t gone yet, and right now there’s no vacancy at RM. #THFC

Lloris to United? Isn't Van Gaal going to want a keeper who can kick so they can keep playing long ball? pic.twitter.com/HpNfeovc2H

Yesterday De Gea was signing a two year extension, today United are in talks with Lloris. Papers Logic
