Cape Town - Champions League holders Real Madrid are looking look to France international goalkeeper Hugo Lloris as the long-term replacement for Iker Casillas.

According to the Express, Real Madrid have turned their attention to French goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.

Iker Casillas', who is now 33-years-old, star has begun to wane in the Spanish capital with the backroom staff at the Santiago Bernabéu now actively seeking his successor.

Madrid have reportedly ended their pursuit of Manchester United's talented goalkeeper David De Gea.

De Gea was heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid but has since come out to distance himself from those reports. (Read the full story here.)

Lloris joined Spurs in 2012 for £11 million and has cemented his place as number one for club and country since that time.  

Paris Saint-Germain,  AS Monaco and Arsenal have all been linked with an interest in the French shot-stopper.
