Manchester City to allow Joe Hart cut-price summer move

BY foxsports • June 30, 2017

After a lengthy summer transfer saga, Joe Hart finally left Manchester City on loan to Italy. However, the club is already looking to seal a final move.

After a ten year stint as a part of the Manchester City organization, Joe Hart was given a one year loan deal to figure out his long term future. Claudio Bravo was brought in as Pep’s keeper of choice. Now reports are indicating that with the entire season to go City are already looking to finalize Hart’s exit.


Joe Hart had his first stat for Torino this past weekend since leave Manchester City. His debut was not the one he would have hoped for. A costly error gave up a goal in a 2-1 loss to Atalanta.

Hart’s replacement, although winning this weekend, did not have a great debut as well. Bravo got his first start against Manchester United on Saturday. A mistake gave away a goal to Zlatan, as the new keeper looks to still need a bit of time to settle in. Bravo’s quality should return as the weeks go on and he gets more match time with City.

Barring a massive unforeseen turn of events, Bravo will be City’s keeper for a number of years. From there they will decide if young Angus Gunn is the goalie for the future, or look elsewhere. That leaves Hart will a sure exit from Manchester City once his loan is complete.

In order to avoid another summer of speculation and reports around Hart the club is prepared to make a quicker and cheaper deal. The Sun reports that Manchester City would like to pay Hart a heavy sum, around 9 million pounds, to complete his contract. Hart would then be free to sign where he likes.
