Manchester United are considering a shock transfer to sign Manchester City’s Joe Hart as David De Gea’s replacement.
Pep Guardiola made it clear the first day that Joe Hart won’t be a part of his plans at Manchester City and his stance hasn’t changed yet. The Spaniard is looking to ship out the goalkeeper for permanent this term, after loaning him out to Torino last year.
Hart is set to be Manchester City’s 3rd choice goalkeeper, behind new signing Ederson and current no.1 Claudio Bravo. Meanwhile, United are anticipating De Gea’s possible transfer away to Real Madrid, and the Red Devils are keen on Joe Hart as a replacement.
De Gea has sold his Cheshire Mansion, which is seen as a clear sign that the Spanish goalkeeper is ready to leave Old Trafford this summer. Real Madrid are favorites to land the coveted shot-stopper, in a deal exceeding £60 million.
If a move materializes, Manchester United are ready to pounce onto the unwanted Hart, who is admired by Jose Mourinho. Joe Hart will be the first player to move between the fierce rivals since Owen Hargreaves crossed the divide by signing for the Citizens.
