Tottenham have branded reports from The Sun that Hugo Lloris will be sold at the end of the season as “mischief making”.
The tabloid newspaper suggested this morning that Spurs are considering letting their French goalkeeper leave at the end of the season for £25m, regardless of their Champions League fate, with Real Madrid interested.
Lloris has been one of the Lilywhites’ top performers so far this term, turning in a number of impressive performances between the sticks to help the London club pick up valuable points.
But rumours over the summer suggested that he was ready to leave White Hart Lane for top level European football, which he is yet to partake in since swapping Lyon for Tottenham over two years ago.
This fuelled speculation that Spurs may be unable to resist a sizable offer, but a spokesperson for the club told Goal that such talk is nonsense:
“There is no substance to the Sun’s story – it’s mischief making. We have talented players so we have to expect this sort of thing.”
Lloris has already kept nine clean sheets this season and has been linked with a move to replace David de Gea at Manchester United.
