In the latest edition of UPTV’s Transfer Daley series, Sam looks at comments from Tottenham Hotspur’s Hugo Lloris suggesting that he wants to play in the Champions League.
The French goalkeeper has been linked with a move to Manchester United as a potential replacement for David de Gea.
Lloris will know full well what he is doing by making the comments and it is clear that he would like to leave Spurs.
De Gea is irreplaceable and it would be a huge blow if he was to leave Old Trafford but Lloris would go a long way to plugging the gap for Louis van Gaal’s side.
Elsewhere, Robin van Persie has been linked with a move to Champions League runners-up Juventus.
The Dutchman’s future at Old Trafford is uncertain but he deserves better than to sit on the bench and the slower pace of Italian football would suit him well.
According to reports in Italy, United may replace van Persie with Gonzalo Higuain but it is highly unlikely that van Gaal will go for the Argentinian.
