It has been revealed that Raymond Domenech has implored goalkeeper Hugo Lloris to stay away from Manchester United.
The former France manager believes Lloris needs to join a ‘big’ English club if he happens to leave Tottenham this summer.
United has been touted as a possible destination for the French international but Domenech is of the belief that the
Red Devils are no longer one of the Premier League’s biggest clubs.
“I have no decision to take for him, but in my opinion he has to play in Chelsea, Arsenal or Manchester City, to play in the European Cup,” Domenech told reporters in France.
“Tottenham is a big club – it is not the biggest. Manchester United qualified for the Champions League, but I can’t see really the difference with Tottenham.
“For me, it’s Chelsea, Arsenal or Manchester City. Because I think Manchester United is no more a big club, in England, for me. I think like that.
“I think Arsenal will be every time a big club, Chelsea also – City is becoming a big club – but I think United is with Tottenham, with the other clubs. Not one of the biggest clubs, so there’s no difference.
“For me, he’s a great goalkeeper so he needs to be in the best English club, or French, or Italian, or German.”
