Man United have chosen Tottenham Hotspur's Hugo Lloris as David de Gea's replacement if the Spaniard decides to join Real Madrid, according to the Daily Star.
Current Real Madrid boss Carlo Ancelotti is currently on the lookout for someone to replace Iker Casillas at the Bernabeu and the United 'keeper is one of his targets. If De Gea does decide to try and push through a move to leave Old Trafford, then it would have to be Louis van Gaal who would then go on a search for a new goalkeeper. His number one target would be Spur's Lloris.
The Frenchman has proved he has what it takes to do well in the Premier League after moving to White Hart Lane back in 2012 and Van Gaal is more than willing to spend big to get the 'keeper to move from north London to Manchester.
Back in July, Lloris did in fact sign a new five-year contract extension but that won't put United off - though it does mean that they'll have to offer plenty of money to get the 27-year-old to switch clubs.
Over the past few summers and transfer windows he has been linked with a plethora of clubs like Monaco and PSG. However, despite having a prolonged interest in the player, no deal to go to Paris materialised and Lloris stayed at White Hart Lane.

But, with United potentially about to lose their number one shot-stopper they could turn to Lloris and the French international could finally end up making the move away from north London.
