The Guardian report that Spurs 'keeper Hugo Lloris will consider his options when summer comes around as he looks to play in the Champions League.

Despite Lloris signing a spanking new 5-year-deal last July, the 28-year-old wants to take his career to the next level and compete in Europe's biggest competition with Europe's elite clubs. Ideally, he'd like to do it with Spurs, but with Champions League football looking increasingly unlikely once again, Lloris' frustration is growing.

Paris Saint-Germain were thought to be very interested in the Frenchman, but Financial Fair Play regulations mean they have to be more shrewd in the transfer market. Considering Daniel Levy's reputation for selling high, a move for Lloris is seemingly out of the question.

One door that may open for Lloris is a Manchester United shaped one. With uncertainty surrounding the future of David De Gea, United would be wise to line up Lloris as a possible replacement. Real Madrid have been circling De Gea for some time now and his agent Jorge Mendes seems determined to engineer a move for his client. If De Gea, a PFA Payers' Player of the Year nominee, were to be sold, he'd command a high fee - high enough for United to reinvest and have some left over.

Lloris and Courtois are probably the only 'keepers on De Gea's level in the Premier League and despite being considerably older than De Gea, the Frenchman would be a very sensible buy. It'll be interesting to see how it plays out, but the availability of Lloris may make United more willing to sell De Gea this summer.
