The very serious Times echoed, this Thursday, May 11, the particularly attractive offer from Saudi Arabia for Hugo Lloris, as a result, with a salary three times higher than that currently paid by Tottenham, more than 450,000 euros per month. According to our information, the Saudi Professional League’s interest in the title of the former Blues captain has been around for a few months. But, so far, there is nothing concrete between the different parties.
Priority is given to the currently injured Frenchman (Tear in one of the tendons of the quadriceps muscle) And not available until the end of the season, as shown on our website on May 6, to recover in order to be ready to go in the pre-season.
Still under a one-year contract, he will first meet Daniel Levy, the Tottenham chairman, to assess and find out his intentions towards him. The 2018 world champions are also waiting to learn more about the identity of the next coach after the sacking of Antonio Conte in March and the interim tenure introduced by Ryan Mason.
Open to the idea of discovering a new tournament
According to a person close to the case, things are clear on Ness’s mind. If he stays in the Premier League, he will be at Tottenham and nowhere else. His family, who is a father of three, is fully formed in London where he arrived in 2012.
Since 2016, his wife, Marine, has created “Manège en Sucre”, a successful children’s clothing brand, especially for girls. However, Lloris is not opposed to the idea of discovering another tournament. “He will study all the options available to him,” the same source said.
At the age of 36, a lucrative offer from Saudi Arabia would be the chance to sign one last major contract before the end of his career. Before that, he will be the subject of an exchange with his relatives because only the financial aspect will not be taken into account. He will also have other proposals on his hands, but with much lower salary terms. Therefore, the largest countries in the Arabian Peninsula could be a potential base, just like, why not, the North American MLS Championship.
Tottenham is looking for a goalkeeper
A return to Ligue 1 is not in the news. Nice, where he started his professional career in 2005, never appeared. Two seasons ago, Rennes, on the other hand, would have liked to welcome him. Meeting in London, particularly in the presence of Florian Maurice (Technical Director) And a representative of the shareholder, it may even happen. Lauris was very sensitive to the Breton leaders’ signs of interest. But at the end of January 2022, he decided to extend until 2024 with Tottenham.
In the difficulty of this season after several injuries and smooth performances, he is known to be somewhat weak in the Tottenham side. Thus, the names of David Raya (Brentford) and Dean Henderson (Nottingham Forest) were mentioned in the media.
“He’s our captain and we need him in the group,” Mason said last Friday, about replacing the Frenchman at half-time during the defeat at Newcastle (1-6), last April 23. I can’t speak for next season, but what I can say is that he plays a very important role. For us until the end of the season, he is our captain and we want him to be an integral part of the team, and he will be.”
The Saudi championship is in full expansion. After the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo in January 2023, another Ballon d’Or, Parisian Lionel Messi, can expand the ranks of the Saudi Professional League. Other players, such as Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets, were polled in order to put the Argentine champions in a good mood and highlight this tournament.
