Joe Hart’s situation at Torino has taken a turn for the worse.
It doesn’t mean he’s doing badly at the club. Hart has had a good season in Serie A, albeit with some bloopers, and has proven proved himself to still be capable.
The problem is that Torino aren’t keen on paying the price Manchester City are asking for, and because of that, they are already thinking of replacements.
Two Italian newspapers today, Gazzetta Dello Sport and Tuttosport, are reporting that Vanja Milinković-Savić has been impressing in training sessions and could be Torino’s goalkeeper next season.
Milinković-Savić was signed by Torino from Lechia in January, and can’t play official games this season. The Italian club’s idea is to test him in friendlies before making a decision on what will be his role at the club.
Manchester City are reportedly asking for €15m for Joe Hart, and there’s also his salary of €4m per season. Torino got him on a free loan deal and only pay a percentage of his wages, so all that money would have a big impact on their budget.
This time, Gazzetta Dello Sport doesn’t have much information on the 30-year-old’s future, although last week they claimed he’ll only return to England to play for a top club.
