Whenever the teams start to talk with their stars in order to extend their current contracts and they see that the players aren’t quite eager to jump ahead and sign right away, rumours and hesitation starts to pile up as days go by.
Winning teams often lure winning players, and it’s not rare to see great guys leave their current sides in order to earn some silverware, even if their current contracts are quite lucrative, as they state it’s not only about the money but they also want to leave their mark in the books of this sport.
Over the past few weeks, there have been several reports that state that Mauricio Pochettino’s Tottenham Hotspur is set to lose one of their key pieces, world class goalkeeper Hugo Lloris, as the French goalie is reportedly stalling his contract extension talks.
Pochettino has already managed to make a deal with franchise player Harry Kane, and with Dele Alli playing behind him, it seems like the future is quite bright for the Yiddish, but it doesn’t seem enough to convince the Frenchman to stay, as he has some serious concerns about the fact that Tottenham might not win the trophies he desires to acquire.
Lloris has been linked with great teams over the past few years but he’s committed to stay put in north London, but it seems like he’s ready to move on, so several guys have come along as the possible replacements for the goalkeeper. The most impressive and serious being the former Manchester City glory and current Three Lions goalkeeper Joe Hart.
This move would actually make a lot of sense for every single party involved in the deal, as Hart is a world class goalkeeper as well and he seems destined for something better than to continue playing at the Italian Serie A with Torino.
It seems quite inevitable that Hugo Lloris winds up leaving the club anytime soon, as every single big team with some cash would be delighted to make a run at the talented Frenchman, so bringing a veteran with vast experience and proven ability would be the best thing to do for Pochettino’s team.
On top of that, Hart is keen to make a return to the Premier League in order to stay sharp and keep his England national team starting spot, something that may be in jeopardy if he continues to play overseas.
The way Manchester City treated one of the biggest icons of the club by the request of their new boss Pep Guardiola was quite unfair for the veteran, so they shouldn’t stand in the way of he getting a new deal elsewhere, even if it helps Tottenham and their current title run.
Hart is just 29 years old, and he still has a lot of football ahead of him and many people to silence, such as Mauricio Pochettino and his outstanding Tottenham, so it’ll be a great move for both parties to bring the British as Hugo Lloris’ replacement if he finally decides to leave the club.
