Carlo Cudicini has no doubt Lloris could shine at Manchester United

The ex-Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur man has been discussing the north London side's current no.1.

Carlo Cudicini has been there and done that - and also got the T-shirt to wear on the bench after being replaced by a better goalkeeper in the aftermath.

The former Chelsea and Tottenham shot stopper spent 12 years playing in London and took part in some huge games, as well as watching on as Petr Cech kept him out of the Blues side.

As such, Cudicini knows a thing or two about goalkeeping. And he has no doubt about Hugo Lloris’s ability at Spurs, according to talkSPORT.

He isn’t the only one, of course, but if any Manchester United fans needed persuading, the Italian’s assertion that Lloris is ‘definitely’ up there with the top goalkeepers may just do the trick.

Indeed, the 41-year-old told talkSPORT: "There are rumours about Hugo Lloris going there.

"Obviously, Manchester United are a top club and top clubs want a top goalkeeper and Hugo is definitely up there.

"It is not easy and, because it is such an important position, you want to be sure. You want to make sure whoever you take is going to be there and perform for your team. I think Hugo Lloris could do that."

The former Chelsea and Spurs ‘keeper, then, seems to agree with most. The question doesn’t appear to be whether Lloris is good enough for Manchester United, it seems to be more about whether (or when) David de Gea will leave - and how hard Daniel Levy will try to keep the Frenchman at White Hart Lane.
