France and Spurs no.1 Hugo Lloris got alarm bells ringing in White Hart Lane recently when he made public his desire to play Champions League football next season. 

That means Spurs must qualify or risk losing their star man between the sticks, and it looks like there'd be plenty of clubs willing to take him in, Manchester United being one of them.

According to The Mirror today, Van Gaal has chosen Lloris as his replacement for the outgoing De Gea, who looks set to join Madrid after turning down a whopping great £150k a week offer from the Red Devils. 

Spurs' saving grace is the possible transfer ban which could be imposed on Real Madrid, which would likely see De Gea staying where he is for the foreseeable future.
