Thibaut Courtois gives his view on 'great' Hugo Lloris, asked if he should join Manchester United

Courtois - Chelsea

The Chelsea goalkeeper has talked up the Tottenham Hotspur shot stopper.

Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois admits he tries to 'steal' techniques off 'great' Tottenham shot stopper Hugo Lloris, according to the London Evening Standard.

But the Belgian feels it's 'not for him' to comment on whether Lloris should join Manchester United.

The Tottenham man has been linked with a move to United this summer, with David De Gea expected to leave Old Trafford.

And, while Chelsea 'keeper Courtois refused to explicitly advise the Frenchman on his future, he was full of praise for the Spurs stopper and seems to feel who would be more than good enough for Manchester United.

So much so that the 23-year-old says he tries to 'steal' Lloris's 'good stuff' while constantly watching him.

The Chelsea star is quoted as telling L'Equipe: "[Lloris is] a great goalkeeper who saves a lot of points for Tottenham.

"I respect him a lot. I always look at what colleagues are doing and try to steal their good stuff to keep progressing while maintaining our own styles.

"Does Hugo Lloris need to go to Manchester United? It's not for me to say."

Lloris clearly has the quality to flourish at the higher end of the Premier League, as he has proved during his time so far at Tottenham.

But leaving a club after several years is never easy - and not always the right decision. It worked out for Gareth Bale at Real Madrid but, even then, the former Spurs ace has been given a tough time by fans in Spain...
