Newcastle United make approach for Joe Hart – Report
Manchester City have received an approach from Newcastle United for Joe Hart, according to reports on Saturday afternoon.
The 30 year old England goalkeeper spent last season on loan with Torino, helping them to finish ninth.
Pep Guardiola made clear last summer that he doesn’t see Joe Hart as his number one and the keeper looks sure to be playing elsewhere this coming season, almost certainly with a permanent move away from the Etihad.
Rafa Benitez has been desperately searching for an experienced keeper to be his number one next season and it looks increasingly likely that Pepe Reina will stay at Napoli, whilst Willy Caballero has signed for Chelsea today.
The Mail say that Newcastle have made their approach after losing out on those two, though whether they are offering a loan or permanent bid is unknown.
Manchester City are having a massive clearout this summer to free up spaces and wages for Guardiola’s own players to come in, so a sale rather than loan will be Man City’s preference.
Newcastle United have made an enquiry for Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart.
West Ham are also credited with interest, whilst Manchester United and Chelsea are allegedly monitoring the situation in the event that either David de Gea or Thibaut Courtois departs.
Joe Hart may have helped Torino finish a decent ninth but the goals conceded was a bit painful.
Hart played 36 of the Serie A club’s 38 league games and conceded 66 goals, only three other clubs leaked more goals than Torino.
