Iker Casillas completed his move from Real Madrid to Porto over the weekend, leaving many Spurs fans sweating over what this will mean for the future of Hugo Lloris.
The good news is that it looks like Manchester United are playing hardball over the potential transfer of David de Gea to the Spanish giants.
De Gea reportedly on the plane (2.30pm) for MUFC tour. Seems United really are digging in and saying 'No Ramos, No De Gea'.

Such a deal would surely be complicated and could leave United with little time to begin the undoubtedly equally tricky negotiations to land Hugo Lloris.
United’s recent interest in Asmir Begovic pointed to the fact that they might be interested in signing a cheaper alternative to Lloris, who would fight it out with the experienced Victor Valdes to be number one at Old Trafford.
If that sounds entirely positive for Tottenham, it should be considered that Real Madrid have themselves been linked with a move for Lloris in the past, while the link to United is unlikely to go away if they invest in short-term solutions.
The bottom line is that we won’t stop sweating until that transfer window slams shut and even then it’s unlikely to be the end of the story.
