JOE HART will reportedly be allowed to join one of Manchester City’s title rivals – if they pay at least £20million.
The goalkeeper is set to leave City on a permanent basis in the summer once he returns from his loan spell at Torino at the end of the season.
The 29-year-old was snubbed by Pep Guardiola on arrival, with Claudio Bravo replacing him between the sticks.
Despite the Chile international’s poor form in England, Hart’s future still appears to be away from Manchester.
It’s believed that Liverpool and Chelsea are in the running for the England star, with Arsenal having also been linked.
Despite Arsene Wenger’s denial of a potential move, 34-year-old Petr Cech’s performances and David Ospina’s desire for more regular football means the Gunners could yet target Hart.
And according to The Times, Guardiola is prepared to let City’s biggest challengers swoop.
But it is said the manager is seeking more than £20m, meaning he will only be within reach of a select band of wealthy clubs.
Hart’s £100,000-a-week wages would also prove a sticking point for sides outside the top six.
