Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris has revealed that he has entertained the thought of leaving Tottenham, saying that he is “not against” seeking a new challenge.
Spurs and France captain Lloris has been a key part of the project developed by Mauricio Pochettino in North London, and has helped keep 107 clean sheets in his 303 appearances for the club thus far.
Lloris’ current Spurs deal expires in 2022 – when he will be 35 – and speaking to France Football, the stopper said that moving to the MLS could be something he may consider in the future.
“I do not think I’m going to finish [my career] at Tottenham,” Lloris said. “I still have a few years ahead of me. In any case, I will do everything to make the most of it. You also have to know when to say stop at the right time, but I’m not against the idea of discovering something new.
“That could be the United States. I do not know, I always had trouble looking in the medium term. I am more focused on the short term.
“In football, things go so fast. We are here tomorrow and after that we’re elsewhere. You have to be careful. I could finish over there [MLS], we’ll see.”
Spurs begin their Champions League campaign on Wednesday with a trip to Olympiacos, and Charlie Nicholas has predicted the club to earn a 1-1 draw in their tournament opener.
