PSG looking to use Pochettino to sign Spurs man, not Alli
By Bruce Grove -

PSG are planning to raid Tottenham for Hugo Lloris in the summer, and they have been using Mauricio Pochettino to advance their plans.

The World Cup winner is Spurs captain and one of their key players.

He was a close friend of Poch when the Argentinean managed the Lilywhites.

Football Insider says the manager and goalie have remained in constant contact as PSG plots a summer move for him.

He will enter the final year of his current Spurs’ deal at the end of this season, and the report adds that he is at a crossroad in his career.

He could sign a new Tottenham contract, but there is also the possibility of him asking to leave N17.

Pochettino is looking to help the Parisians maintain their dominance of French football and end their wait for a Champions League title.

Keylor Navas is one of the best goalies in the world, but Lloris has also proven to be a player that can lead a team to glory.

Spurs will not want to lose their captain easily, and they will look to hand him a new deal soon to stop him from leaving.

They already have a top keeper, someone is trying to link Spurs players to Poch and being French too it’s a no brainer right? Wrong…

It makes sense. Lloris contract runs out end of next season. He has refused to sign a new one so far.. He has won nothing with us and spent the majority of his career with us.. French Cap, and PSG are far and away the best there.. I expect him to end his career there and win some stuff like he deserves.

Can’t reply on other thread but there’s much more to our debt than calling it ‘generational’.. This would depend when and how we pay it off.. Unfortunately covid has fucked us.. Before the intra-covid season we were 600 million net debt (total debt, less cash on the books) due by 2022. Financed into several tranches that had maturities between 15 and 30 years. Breaking up the debt means it can be paid off as and when is most convenient, so it can be regularly refinanced or paid off if interest rates or other circumstances are advantageous…… So if everything had gone to plan we could have made money and paid it off quicker… Ten years for example, means it wouldn’t be generational. Even 15 years wouldnt be bad.

Over rated, imo. Brainfart waiting to happen. His weak mentality has cost us over the years.

Hopefully Jose has identified another GK as a priority

Pope would be my fantasy pick or the villa keeper (i know he was briefly a goon but sod it)

He threw one in the world cup final for gords sake

Started on Sonny, lol

He does have the odd fart, but year after year he’s banged out consistent stats proving he’s top three in the prem.. And he has saved us many times with outrageous saves he has no right to get to.. Its going to be hard to find a keeper as good as Hugo.

Over all he’s been a good servant to Spurs, but like many players there, he’s probably stayed a couple of seasons too long. It would make sense all round for him to go back to France this summer; and we should be looking to bring in a new, homegrown no. 1. I’m not sure if Schmeichel would count as homegrown, but he’d be my first choice, although he’s maybe waiting on the call from Old Trafford. 2nd for me would be Nick Pope

I agree with you re Lloris, and Schmeichel would count as homegrown. But not sure if replacing a 34 year old Lloris with a 34 year old Schmeichel would be a sensible deal. Pope looks like a better choice. But I guess the transfer fee could be a problem. Still young for a goalkeeper, English international etc. Didnt Everton pay like £30m for Pickford?

I’m not sure that Burnley would ask too much for Pope.Remember Heaton was an English international and i think he went for 8M to Villa.
I do like Pope though,however i have doubts about his kicking,not the greatest.I must say i have been impressed with Sam Johnstone on loan at WBA,young and English.I doubt he would want to stay at Utd. behind De Gea and Henderson.
Incidentally I just watched Schmeichel against Pooh and he has been consistently good,but perhaps his age would be against him.

Yep, Johnstone too seem interesting. Had to look him up at that Transfermarkt site. Looks like WBA bought him in 2018, and his contract actually expires in 2022. Now that seems like a perfect match for Levy, getting (or trying to get) a talented English goalie on the cheap this summer!
