United and Liverpool keeper target ‘agrees to deal’

Published Add your comment

Lyon star goalkeeper Hugo Lloris appears to have agreed to a deal with his current club, despite interest from Liverpool and Manchester United, according to talkSPORT.

Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas said that Llrois had spoken to him personally, and both player and club were happy to come to an agreement.

"I have spoken with Hugo and have said we are willing to reach an agreement,” Aulas said.


"We will sit down and try to renew the contract so that both parties can reach a satisfactory agreement."

Liverpool had shown a great deal of interest in Lloris, after the stopper starred for Lyon this season and contributed to the french outfit's third position on the League 1 table.

Liverpool manager Kenny Dalglish was reportedly keeping tabs on Lloris as a possible replacement for Pepe Reina if he leaves Anfield this summer. But with Reina looking set to stay at Liverpool, Dalglish has cooled his interest in the French star.

Meanwhile, Manchester United’s interest has not cooled on Lloris, with Edwin Van der Sar still looking set to retire from Old Trafford. Should Lloris head to Manchester United, he would no doubt go for a high fee, but if the Lyon and France vice captain is happy in his home country, Manchester United may not be able to persuade the star to make a move.
