Manchester United are widely expected to lose David de Gea this summer, but they seem to have a back-up plan in place.
De Gea is expected to leave for Real Madrid. While negotiations between the two clubs have recently stalled, the Red Devils are chasing Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper and French captain Hugo Lloris as a contingency.

The Metro reports that United have been cleared to strike a deal for the Tottenham stopper, and they are preparing to offer Spurs £25m for a transfer.
Lloris is expected to join the Red Devils as soon as De Gea leaves, although these negotiations will be complicated if De Gea ends up playing out his contract in Old Trafford.
If the 28-year-old French international departs Tottenham, Spurs will reportedly bring in Marseille goalkeeper Steve Mandanda to replace him for £6.5m.
