Joe Hart open to United move

Joe Hart news

Joe Hart would consider a highly controversial move from City to United

Joe Hart is set to return to Manchester City next month, when his loan spell at Torino comes to an end. Manager Pep Guardiola has made it clear that Hart is not part of his plans, and now Hart has revealed that he would be open to a move to bitter rivals Manchester United. 

The Sun reports that Hart would like to stay in the North West of England when he returns from Italy, and would consider a move across Manchester to Old Trafford. Current United goalkeeper David De Gea has been heavily linked with a move to Real Madrid, and it is understood that Hart would only agree to a deal if De Gea leaves, which would make him the first choice goalkeeper at the club. 

Manchester City are said to value Joe Hart are around £15 million, which compared to the roughly £60 million that United would sell De Gea for, would be a relatively small amount.

Manchester United would not be Hart's only option in the North West, with Merseyside clubs Liverpool and Everton both said to be considering a move for the England goalkeeper.
