Manchester United ‘could move this summer for Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris’ after nine years in North London amid doubts about David De Gea’s future at Old Trafford’ with Spurs interested in Lille’s Mike Maignan
- Hugo Lloris could leave Spurs with Manchester United as a possible destination
- Reports in France claim that Tottenham is interested in Lille goalkeeper Mike Maignan
- David De Gea had previously been under pressure at Old Trafford in recent years
- Lloris has also had his critics at Spurs after spending nine years in North London
Manchester United could sign Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris this summer as doubts about David De Gea’s future persist – while Spurs are weighing Lille’s Mike Maignan as a replacement, it is claimed.
The Red Devils are reportedly in the market for a new option between the sticks amid doubts about David De Gea’s future, and Lloris could be an option for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men, said L’Equipe
Lloris herself is being touted for a Spurs departure this summer after nine years with the North Londoners – who are reportedly assessing a number of potential replacements, and reports claim Maignan is one of them.

The captain of French and Spurs club Lloris turns 34 this year and it is claimed that his time at Tottenham could soon be over, with Nick Pope and United’s Dean Henderson among the names among the names.
And L’Equipe believes Old Trafford is a possible destination for Lloris if his fellow countryman Maignan replaces him.
Lloris has played for Spurs 363 times since coming over from Lyon in 2012 and played in a Champions League final in 2019, but he has never won a trophy for the club in a frustrating period.
It could pave the way for the club to move in a different direction with Maignan, who has received high praise for his performance for Lille this season. He played all 30 of his squad’s Ligue 1 matches and helped them to an enchanting title race with PSG. He also led them to the French Cup final against the Parisiens, where they lost 3-0.

The 25-year-old has one cap for France and will compete with Lloris on the international stage – and Les Bleus will certainly see him as a possible successor to the World Cup winner.
In the meantime, Solskjaer will keep a close eye on the goalkeeper situation at United, with Henderson recently playing first choice in the absence of De Gea, who returned to Spain for the birth of his child.
He hasn’t played since late February and appears to have lost his place on the team, with Henderson largely fautless as his stand-in.
However, the Englishman has been courted by a number of clubs, so it could leave the door open for United to sign another veteran shotstopper.
