Mark Bosnich: 'Hugo Lloris well suited to Manchester United'

Former Manchester United goalkeeper Mark Bosnich insists that Hugo Lloris would be a better option for the Red Devils compared to Jasper Cillessen.

Mark Bosnich has urged former side Manchester United to forget about signing Jasper Cillessen and instead try to lure Hugo Lloris to Old Trafford.

The Red Devils are thought to be in the market for a new goalkeeper due to the uncertainty over David de Gea's future.

Cillessen in particular has been heavily linked with a switch to United in recent weeks, but Bosnich wants to see Louis van Gaal make a move for Tottenham Hotspur stopper Lloris.

"I'm not 100% certain about [Cillessen]. I think he did OK at the World Cup [for Holland], but he's not one who stands out in terms of being dominant," the Australian told talkSPORT.

"The English Premier League is definitely the most physically demanding in the world and it takes foreign players quite a while to adjust to that.

"We saw during De Gea's first season, it was a bit of a struggle. Lloris knows the Premier League inside out and he's had success."

Bosnich spent four years at United across two different spells, while also playing for both Aston Villa and Chelsea.
