Torino have opened talks with Manchester City over an extended loan deal for England goalkeeper Joe Hart, according to Wednesday’s edition of Tuttosport.
The City fan favourite, who turns 30 in a week’s time, has become a big hit at the Stadio Olimpico Grande Torino, despite the Granata conceding more goals than every team besides the bottom two (something the defence is more to blame for).
Despite being linked with a host of English clubs, including Everton, Liverpool and West Ham, Tuttosport claims no offers have arrived from any other club yet, and in light of this news, Joe has told Torino chiefs that he’d like to stay at the club if the situation remains the same.
City will prefer a permanent sale, with Pep Guardiola not viewing Hart as part of his plans, but Torino will not be able to finance such a deal and are hoping to receive the goalkeeper for a second year on loan.
Hart has two years left on his £120,000-a-week City contract and will see his value depreciate sharply in a year’s time if no buyer is found this summer.
For a limited time, you can get your hands on a Manchester City home shirt from just £30 for adults and £22.50 for children.
