Manchester City fallout Joe Hart knows that his time in the Premier league is over and has decided where he will land if he cannot extend Torino stay.
The 29-year-old is contracted at the Etihad for another two seasons on £120,000-a-week. Manchester City are looking for a cut price deal of around £10 million to release Joe Hart from their services but will not consider selling him to a Premier league club.
Manchester City source said: “The club want to recognise his long years of admirable service.”
“He fell just a year short of his testimonial, where he would have been honoured. He has had a great career here.”
Pep Guardiola will only listen to offers from cash rich Premier league sides if offered more than £20 million. A cheaper alternative would be to let him leave for another club abroad.
Torino are happy with their new shot stopper but cannot afford his £10 million price tag.
Joe Hart casted doubts on his City career last week by stating: “I don’t think City are going to be standing in the way – if somebody really wants me, then I’m probably going to be made available.”
“So it will be about talking and working out what is next and what the best move is for whichever club that might be be for myself.”
