Reports have reemerged that Manchester United would be able to sign top goalkeeping target Hugo Lloris from Tottenham Hotspur for just £18m.
Speculation last month claimed that Lloris has an agreement with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy that he could leave for a Champions League club for €25m.
Spurs denied the rumours, but now French publication L’Equipe claims that Lloris would indeed be available at a knockdown price considering that Tottenham had hoped to recoup £30m him.
The France captain has been linked with the Red Devils as they prepare for life without David de Gea, who is expected to complete a transfer to Real Madrid this summer.
Stoke City’s Asmir Begovic, who is also on Chelsea’s radar, Samir Handanovic and Jasper Cillessen have also been tipped to join United, but Louis van Gaal is understood to favour Lloris.
The 28-year-old is believed to have held several rounds of talks with United officials, despite no fee yet being agreed, and negotiations are expected to continue in the coming weeks.
