Jose Mourinho is looking to raid the White Hart Lane as he has identified David de Gea’s replacement.

The Red Devils are in the danger of losing one of their key players in Spanish shot-stopper David de Gea at the end of the season.

The Spaniard is among the best in the business in Europe and is wanted by Zinedine Zidane at the Bernabeu. The French manager is ready to break the bank and meet his valuation, and Mourinho seems to have finally given up.

He was not ready to sell De Gea earlier in the season but it is now understood that Mourinho is already looking at replacements.

According to an exclusive from the Express, Tottenham Hotspur’s Hugo Lloris is the man that Mourinho believes can replace De Gea.

The French international has been one of the most consistent goalkeepers in the Premier League for some time now but the report claims that he is unsettled at the White Hart Lane.

The same report also claims that Lloris, who has won just one trophy in his career, with Lyon, is now looking for places where he can achieve more.

The 30-year old only signed a new contract till 2022 in December, but it is understood that Lloris is capable of manufacturing a move away from the Lane at the end of the season.

Manchester United aren’t the only suitors, as French giants PSG will also try to lure him back to his home country.

It is also understood that both teams are set to offer Lloris an improvement on his current £100,000-a-week that he earns at the Lane.
