Tottenham Hotspur are being linked with sanctioning a hugely unpopular sale this summer.
The Sun claim the club are willing to sell goalkeeper Hugo Lloris at a price of £25 million.
The report reads: "The French No 1 will be allowed to leave for a Champions League club in the summer — even if Spurs seal a top-four spot of their own.
"Lloris, 28, is in his third season at White Hart Lane but the club are willing to cash in at the end of this campaign."
The goalkeeper has been in superb form as of late, putting in an astounding performance to keep a clean sheet against Manchester United in December.
Rumours of interest from Real Madrid has long circulated, and it would be a bitter pill for fans to swallow should he land up moving to join up with ex-star Gareth Bale.
Selling such a key player would however be sending completely the wrong message to supporters regarding the club's ambition, once again, and fellow players.
Mauricio Pochettino has aims of building a strong side, and it's unlikely he envisions his early good work being undone by any plan to allow his goalkeeper to leave.
Tottenham may well have faith in reserve goalkeeper Michel Vorm, who is experienced and proven in the Premier League, but it is no disrespect to him to suggest he is not of Lloris' outstanding calibre.
