Manchester United keeper target Hugo Lloris has revealed he could make a summer switch.

The French international stopper has been linked with a move to Old Trafford on numerous occasions in the past, and has finally revealed that a switch to Manchester United is a possibility.

24-year-old Lloris joined Lyon for €8.5 million in 2008, signing from Ligue 1 rivals Nice despite reported interest from AC Milan.

After back-to-back impressive campaigns, other European clubs are taking an interest in the player, with Manchester United leading the challenge from England.

"Manchester United? It is a great club but I cannot say anymore. We will wait and see what happens during the summer. I might play abroad but I do not where,” said Lloris.

"This is important for my progression as a professional. I know that big clubs are interested in me, but I am waiting to see what happens."


The Red Devils are in the market for a goalkeeper, with Sir Alex Ferguson searching for a successor for Edwin Van der Sar, who is set to retire from Manchester United at the end of the season.

Rene Adler, Manuel Neuer and Maarten Steklenberg have all been linked with the No.1 position, but Les Bleus star Lloris has thrown his hat into the ring with complimentary comments to Manchester United.
