Fans’ view: Hugo Lloris or Petr Cech to replace David de Gea if he leaves?

by Ben Topliss

In a perfect world, David de Gea would turn down Real Madrid to stay at Manchester United and everyone would be happy.

In reality, it looks increasingly likely that the Spaniard will return to his homeland, leaving Man United with the task of finding his replacement.

Tottenham Hotspur’s Hugo Lloris has been linked with a move to Old Trafford for a number of weeks but reports on Tuesday suggested United are also considering bringing in Chelsea keeper Petr Cech.

We asked our Twitter followers for their thoughts on who they would prefer out of the two:

Cech undoubtedly retains the quality to play at the highest level despite losing his no.1 spot to Thibaut Courtois at Stamford Bridge this season.

Meanwhile, 28-year-old Lloris may be a better long-term option as he is yet to enter his prime.

Perhaps van Gaal will prefer Cech’s distribution, as United have often played out from the back over the course of the campaign. Lloris is a superb shot-stopper but isn’t the best with the ball at his feet.
