Former Manchester United goalkeeper Mark Bosnich has insisted that the club should swoop for Tottenham ace Hugo Lloris if David de Gea departs before the close of the transfer window, reports talkSPORT.
The Red Devils have been linked with Ajax shot-stopper Jasper Cillessen of late, but Bosnich isn't sure if the 'keeper has the credentials to become an instant hit in England's elite division.
Bosnich, then, clearly thinks the club should secure the signature of Lloris, who has a fine track record in the Premier League.

The former United 'keeper told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast: “I’m not 100 per cent certain about him [Cillessen]. I think he did OK at the World Cup [for Holland], but he’s not one who stands out in terms of being dominant.
“The English Premier League is definitely the most physically demanding in the world and it takes foreign players quite a while to adjust to that.
“We saw during [David] De Gea’s first season, it was a bit of a struggle. Lloris knows the Premier League inside out and he’s had success.”
Lloris would be great
Let's be honest, Lloris really would be a fantastic coup for the Red Devils if they were forced into replacing De Gea in this transfer window, but is a deal really possible?
Ultimately, there's no real reason why Spurs would - or should - sell to United. Lloris is one of the most consistent 'keepers in the division and has a long-term contract with the club, so they're under no pressure to offload their man.
Of course, if Lloris makes it known that he wants a move to Manchester, then that could complicate things, but anything appears to be possible at this stage. De Gea may not even leave...
