Real Madrid targets Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris
SPORTS By Mirror | July 3rd 2016
Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has emerged as a £35 million target for Real Madrid.
The 29-year-old is regarded a key figure in the revival at White Hart Lane inspired by manager Mauricio Pochettino.
The skipper has a contract at Spurs for the next three years and has established himself as the automatic first choice since his £10 million move from Lyon in 2012.
Lloris is useful at White Hart Lane, especially to coach Pochettino , and the Spurs want him to extend the deal that still has three years to run.
Lloris has talked to chairman Daniel Levy about a new contract and those talks will continue after the European Championships.
Lloris has made it clear that he is happy at White Hart Lane and delighted to work under the management of Pochettino.
However, If a club with the profile of Real come calling, Lloris could well be tempted to listen.
They are a club with world-wide support – and they are the current holders of Champions League.
The chance to work with Zinedine Zidane at Real Madrid may prove too tempting
They are also managed by Zinedine Zidane – a World Cup winner with France on 1998 and who enjoys iconic status in his homeland.
Spurs will resist any attempt to sell their goalkeeper and will attempt to persuade him to extend his stay.
Lloris will decide on his future when he finished with France in the Euros.
