There are very few players who have fallen out of favour so quickly like Joe Hart. Hart was having a pretty decent career at Manchester City with virtually no contender to his throne. Then Pep Guardiola came to the shores of Manchester and nothing was the same again.
Hart quickly fell out of favour under Guardiola as the Spanish coach wanted a keeper who could predominantly make play from the back. And Hart just did not fit the brief. So Guardiola brought in Claudio Bravo to replace Hart as the new No 1. This meant that Joe Hart was immediately loaned off.
He landed in Italy to join the Torino outfit and has spent the whole of last season there. Hart went on to become Torino’s goalkeeper of choice. Making 37 appearances for the club.
But back in Manchester the sun just refused to shine for Pep Guardiola. His dream of playing a sweeper keeper just did not come true as Claudio Bravo couldn’t settle down. Bravo’s poor form and Caballero’s departure in the summer meant that things started to look a bit bright for the English international.
But now Manchester City have gone on to sign Ederson Moraes from Benfica for a huge amount of money. Meaning that Hart is lost somewhere between Italy and England.
Reports though have been coming through that Joe Hart is moving to West Ham United in yet another loan deal. The Hammers are interested in signing the 30-year-old on a loan deal with an option to make the move permanent next season.
Manchester City were ready to sell of Hart and had kept a £20 million price tag for the out-of-favour keeper. But as of this date, no bids have arrived for the player. Now it looks as if West Ham want the English international. But only on loan.
Joe Hart moving to West Ham will be a win-win situation for all the parties involved with the deal. While Hart will finally get to play regular first team football in England’s top division, City, on the other hand, can finally unload their burden.
