Hugo Lloris reiterates Champions League ambitions amid Manchester United speculation

by Ben Topliss

Tottenham Hotspur keeper Hugo Lloris has reiterated his desire to play in the Champions League.

Manchester United have been linked with the Frenchman as a possible replacement for David de Gea if he decides to leave Old Trafford for Real Madrid.

Earlier this week, Lloris appeared to entertain the rumours by suggesting that he wants to play in the Champions League.

The player has now reaffirmed this stance by insisting it is a “personal ambition” of his to play in Europe’s elite competition.

Speaking about the Champions League, Lloris said: ”This is what everyone wants, and not just because it is the season of the European Championships.

“It is a goal and a personal ambition. The Champions League remains an important competition, the highest level in Europe, so obviously I want to participate and rub shoulders with the biggest European teams.

“I work towards that every day.”

Of course, the hope for Man United fans is that De Gea ultimately decides to stay at the club. Unfortunately, this looks more and more unlikely by the day.

Lloris would be a fine replacement for the Spaniard but a lot of supporters seem to be forgetting that United have a ready made replacement already at Old Trafford in the form of Victor Valdes. The 33-year-old is one of the most decorated players of his generation and hasn’t lost his talent despite his spell on the substitute’s bench last season.
