Tottenham Hotspur chairman Daniel Levy will attempt to fend off Manchester United’s interest in goalkeeper Hugo Lloris by slapping a £35 million price-tag on the Frenchman.
United feared Daniel Levy would play hardball over any deal for the Spurs No. 1, and the Daily Mail say the north Londoners are determined not to sell one of their best players to a Premier League rival.
United are eyeing a deal for Lloris as fears grow Real Madrid will make a move for David De Gea but would have to contend with interest from PSG too if they wanted to get their man.
Despite a wealth of interest, Spurs will try and ward off suitors by demanding what would be a world record transfer fee for a goalkeeper.
Gianluigi Buffon cost Juventus £32.6m in 2001 when the Old Lady signed the Italian from Parma, and that figure has yet to be bettered 14 years later.
If Spurs refuse to budge from their lofty demands, United will hesitate to make a move.
