Tottenham are interested in signing Lille goalkeeper Mike Maignan as a long-term replacement for Hugo Lloris – with Manchester United a possible next destination for the Spurs skipper.

Maignan has enjoyed a spectacular season with Lille with the club currently in a four-way battle to win their first Ligue 1 title since 2011.

The 25-year-old will enter the final year of his contract this summer however and with no shortage of suitors, offers are expected at the end of the season.

Chelsea were linked with a move for Maignan last summer before eventually signing Edouard Mendy from Rennes with L’Equipe now reporting Tottenham are interested in bringing him to north London.

Maignan’s arrival at Tottenham could trigger Lloris exit aft nine seasons at the club. L’Equipe claim the 34-year-old could be ready to take on one more ‘big challenge’, naming United as his possible next move with David de Gea no longer in United’s long-term thinking, according to the publication.

De Gea has been United’s regular no1 for much of the 2020-21 season with Dean Henderson stepping in while the Spaniard returned to his homeland for the birth of his first child earlier this month.

Henderson has kept his place in the team despite De Gea’s availability in recent games against AC Milan and Leicester City with the long-serving United goalkeeper now in a real battle to regain his place in the first-team.

De Gea is thought to be United’s top earner, with the contract signed last August thought to be worth £350,000-a-week.

Reports have suggested United will let one of De Gea and Henderson leave the club at the end of the season either on loan or on a permanent deal.

The Sun claimed in February that United are already looking for an established goalkeeper to come in and provide cover across the course of a season for their new no1.
