Man Utd target Lloris coy about Lyon future

Manchester United transfer target Hugo Lloris is keeping his cards close to his chest regarding his future at French club Lyon.

The 24-year old has recently been linked to the English powerhouse as Sir Alex Ferguson looks to bring in an apt replacement for the retiring Edwin van der Sar.

But Lloris says he is only focused on trying to win France's Ligue 1 with Les Gones and did not even mention Man Utd.

"My future? Today I am only focused on the remaining games of the season in Le Championnat," he told France Football.

"The lowest we can aim for is Champions League qualification. It is very close and we have to give our all until the last day.

"We have to be sensible and make sure we finish inside the top-three before thinking about the title.

"I feel perfectly happy at Lyon. I have everything I need to help me improve and blossom, so I haven't asked any questions about my future.

"Do I see myself being at Lyon long-term? I don't think like that, I think only about tomorrow. That allows me to be focused and not waste too much energy."
