Chelsea line up a surprise replacement for Real Madrid bound star
Reports from Italy are linking Man City goal keeper Joe Hart with a shock move to Chelsea. Chelsea are preparing for life after Thibaut Courtois after it emerged that the Real Madrid have placed Courtois over Manchester United’s David De Gea as their first choice goal keeper.
Hart, currently on loan with Torino, is unwanted at Manchester City, he turns 30 on Wednesday and could be sold if a bid in the region of £25 Million is tabled.
Torino want to keep the England keeper, but cannot stump up the required cash outlay to sign him, and City are unlikely going to agree another loan deal for him, unless there are absolutely no permanent takers.
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, has received glowing reports of the keeper’s performances in Turin and is said to be impressed by what he is hearing.
Hart is one of the best keepers in England, and only lost his Man City place because Pep Guardiola wants a goal keeper that can play from the back.
The England number one has committed some blunders while on loan at Torino this season, but his overall performance have been very impressive.
