Hugo Lloris has said in an interview published today in L’Equipe that Manchester United have been in contact with the player and that there is no release clause in his Tottenham contract as recent reports . claimed.
Lloris insisted in the interview that a move to PSG is unlikely amid interest from Manchester United. He is widely tipped to be the number one target of manager Louis Van Gaal to replace goalkeeper David de Gea who is expected to move to Real Madrid.
Lloris performances have been the shining light in what was yet another season of failed assault on the top four by Totteham and their fans will be relieved to hear from the stopper that he does not have the a 20m release clause in his contract as was rumored. Lloris said: a This does not correspond to reality. There is no clause.a
Manchester United, though, will be further encouraged to hear the French International Goalkeeper and Captain admit that his future is far from certain: “We do not know what can happen. There is one important thing: there is a time to think about yourself.”
Lloris, 28, is at crossroads of his career. And with David de Gea moving on, he could very well be the man between the sticks at Old Trafford. His impressive saves per game ratio and the ability to hold onto the ball in 2014-15 will please the Man United fans who are worried the exit of David de Gea to Real Madrid will leave a massive hole in the defense. In Hugo Lloris, they have an able replacement lined up.
