Aulas: 'It's 50/50 for Hugo Lloris'

Olympique Lyonnais president Jean-Michel Aulas revealed to OLTV that Hugo Lloris has a 50/50 chance of staying at Lyon this season... or joining Tottenham.

"Hugo Lloris is in a plane for London, to Tottenham, even if the deal hasn't been completed yet. We are up against club directors that are very particular, even inconsistent, because in these discussions, they can change things overnight. What we thought we'd agreed at 5am is not the same at 10am... Above the financial wrangling, you have to add certain values. It is very important for me that Hugo Lloris joins a quality squad, but also a quality club, with values and a commitment to the player that makes him feel good and at home. At the moment we are trying to negotiate that he comes back to salute the supporters and his teammates, a sort of lap of honour for this great player and brilliant man. There is a 50/50 chance that Lloris will join Tottenham."
