Manchester United are reportedly set to make a concrete offer for Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, according to French newspaper L'equipe.
The report claims that the Red Devils will make a firm offer once David De Gea's impending departure to Real Madrid gathers pace, and according to the Marca, the Spanish capital club are set to submit an improved offer to take the 'keeper to the Santiago Bernabeu this summer.
Louis van Gaal will make bringing a top quality replacement for the Spanish international a priority this summer and has been heavily linked with a move for Lloris in recent weeks. The French stopper has also fueled fire by suggesting that he will be open for a move, as he is keen on playing in the Champions League.
"For the moment there is a goalkeeper at United and we are watchful of his situation. You have to keep certain calm with all this. If things should happen then they will happen naturally," Lloris said, as quoted by Le10Sport.
"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," the Frenchman reiterated, as quoted by the Mirror.
Meanwhile, according to French newspaper Le10 Sport, Lloris has a verbal agreement with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy regarding a summer move, and it is believed that the north London club will sanction the move if an interested club meets their €25m (£17.7m, $27.9m) valuation for Lloris.
United have also identified other goalkeeper targets, with a Mirror report suggesting that Ajax's Jasper Cillessen is also high up on Van Gaal's wanted list as a replacement, if De Gea does make his move to the La Liga this summer.
