Italian clubs contact Manchester City about Joe Hart, Germany also an option


AC Milan and Torino have contacted Manchester City to inquire about a move for Joe Hart in the past 24 hours, according to the Sunday Express.

City are trying to help Hart find a new club before Wednesday’s transfer deadline, after his most likely option, Everton, cooled their interest. Hart sat down with Txiki Begiristain after training on Saturday to discuss the options he has now that Guardiola has demoted him to third choice goalkeeper at the club.

Despite the emergence of 17-year-old sensation Gianluigi Donnarumma, who has received his first call-up to the senior Italy squad last week, Milan have asked about Hart, as have Torino.

The Express adds that German giants Borussia Dortmund also have an interest, despite recent denials by sporting director Michael Zorc, and City’s willingness to pay the bulk of his wages could make that a potential option.

The BBC reported recently that Hart had no interest in a move abroad, but his dwindling number of options in the Premier League could change his mind. Sunderland, who lost first choice ‘keeper Vito Mannone to injury for three months, could still be a domestic option for England’s number one.
