Manchester City are so eager to offload goalkeeper Joe Hart this summer that they will accept as little as £5million from any club outside of the Premier League top six, Paul Joyce of The Times reports.
It reflects just how far the four-time Premier League Golden Glove winner’s stock has fallen in recent years, after Pep Guardiola decided Hart wouldn’t be part of his plans after arriving at the Etihad Stadium.
An indifferent loan spell at Serie A club Torino was followed by a disappointing stint at West Ham, which saw him displaced by Adrián for a chunk of the season, with the Hammers deciding not to use their option to buy 31-year-old Hart.
With 12 months remaining on his Man City contract and a hefty salary, City now hope to attract offers for Hart by putting him on the market for £5million or less.
Premier League duo Southampton and Wolves have been linked and may find the experienced shot-stopper appealing at a cut-price.
Joe has proven himself to be open-minded with his Torino loan spell, and could also look overseas for a new club if nothing materialises in the Premier League.
