Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart is slowly coming to the end of his season-long loan with Serie A outfit Torino.
England shot stopper was deemed surplus to the requirements by Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola last summer and is not expected to return to Etihad.
Joe hart is said to be open to extending his stay with the Bulls, but his wages currently seem to be an obstacle too big for the Italian outfit.
Torino president Urbano Cairo has revealed that the club has excellent relationship with England’s No. 1 and that there is a strong will in the club to make Hart’s stay in Italy permanent, despite interest from Premier League.
West Ham have already expressed interest in bringing the 29-year-old back to England, but Torino could unveil an ace hidden up their sleeve, that could play an important role in deciding the future of Joe Hart.
Torino hot-shot striker Andrea Belotti could end up holding a key to Hart’s future, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
The Italian forward has scored a hat-trick against Palermo on Sunday which saw him move top of the Serie A scoring charts with 22 goals to his name, three more than AS Roma hitman Edin Dzeko.
Urbano Cairo seems to have made a proper decision to tie his striker down to a long-term contract back in January, which includes a whopping €100 million release clause.
Seeing that the likes of Real Madrid, Manchester United, Chelsea, but also Manchester City have all been alerted by the imposing form of the 23-year-old Italian striker, Torino could decide to do business with the Citizens and perhaps use Joe Hart as the bargaining chip.
La Gazzetta dello Sport claims that a hotline has been opened between the Italian and English club, who will be in constant contact over the next couple of months and into the transfer window as search for a solution that would please both sides continues.
