Are you shocked at the headline? If Manchester United is not one of the biggest clubs in the world we do not know who is, but according to former France national team manager Raymond Domenech they no longer are.
Hugo Lloris has in the past admitted that he would like to play for a team that was in the Champions League, and given the fact we all assume Manchester United goalkeeper David De Gea is about to sign for Real Madrid the 28-year-old Spurs keeper has emerged as the number one choice to replace the Spaniard at Old Trafford.
Domenech, who gave Lloris his international debut in 2008, feels that the French NO.1 should join Chelsea, Arsenal, or Manchester City, because in his opinion joining the Red Devils would be a sideways step.
“Tottenham is a big club – it is not the biggest. Manchester United qualified for the Champions League, but I can’t really see the difference with Tottenham,” he told the Daily Mail.
“For me, it’s Chelsea, Arsenal, or Manchester City. Because I think Manchester United is no more a big club, in England.”
