According The Mirror, Real Madrid is targeting the Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, who is now playing for France in the Euro 2016. Los Blancos want another goalkeeper to compete with Keylor Navas in the goal.
Currently, Kiko Casilla is the second goalkeeper and last year he was very unlucky because he was supposed to play Copa del Rey but Real was knocked out in the first game against Cádiz for irregularities in the line up. Therefore Casilla couldn’t play a lot and only showed his qualities in a few games in La Liga.
The English newspaper says that Real Madrid want another top-class goalkeeper to compete with Keylor Navas despite the great season the Costa Rican player did last year.
Lloris is now playing the Euro with France and he’s the goalkeeper of the national team. He’s playing tonight the quarter finals against Iceland and Germany is already waiting in the semi finals.
Lloris’ season at Tottenham Hotspur was great, perhaps the best since his arrival to North London. With Pocchettino on the bench, the Spurs fought for the Premier League title until the end of the season with Leicester City and next year they’ll play the Champions League group stages again.
According to the same source, Lloris’ price is around 35M€. Real Madrid know how hard is negotiating with Tottenham Hotspur, former club of Luka Modric or Gareth Bale. Florentino Pérez and Daniel Levy know each other very well and keep a good relationship after these deals.
After Keylor Navas and Kiko Casilla good performance, it looks quite unlikely that Real Madrid want to change anything in the goalkeeper position. David de Gea looks forgotten and, perhaps, the club should focus on reinforce some other position in the pitch.
