Claudio Bravo has arrived in Manchester to complete his £17 million transfer meaning the door should now open for Joe Hart to depart Manchester City. The only problem is, Hart is being priced out of a move because of his reported £7 million cost of wages and loan fee.
As we approach the transfer window deadline, it’s starting to look more likely that Hart will still be in Manchester for at least the first half of the season. Pep Guardiola has refused to go into detail on Hart and remains adamant that there is a place for him in his squad. If Hart stay’s he will have to fight for the number one jersey and you can get odds of 2/1 that he’ll remain at The Etihad. Five days ago you could have got 8/1 on Hart to stay at City.
If you think a move is a certainty, Everton have been the front runners for his signature since the opening day of the Premier League where he was left on the bench. Even though they have reportedly cooled off their interest after the £7m million fee was announced, they are still the 1/2 favourites for where Hart will end up after the transfer window.
