Hugo Lloris given ‘verbal agreement’ by Tottenham Hotspur – report

According to reports, Hugo Lloris has been given a verbal agreement that he will be sold should the club receive an offer of £18m.

The French goalkeeper has been at the club since 2012 and the report, that first surfaced in L’Equipe, states that Daniel Levy agreed verbally to a sale should a bid of £18m, which is around €25m, come in for his player.

Lloris recently admitted that he is keen to play in the Champions League next season and those comments have sparked speculation over where his future lies.

He said: “The Champions League remains an important competition, the highest level in Europe, so obviously I want to participate and rub shoulders with the biggest European teams.”

Louis van Gaal and Manchester United have been linked with Jasper Cillessen along with other goalkeepers this summer and also have Victor Valdes and Anders Lindegaard in their squad but Lloris is seen as being an upgrade on all of those options.

Lloris remained loyal to Spurs despite interest in previous years from Real Madrid and Paris Saint Germain. It now looks like United might put a bid in for the player to replace David de Gea should he leave this summer.
