Manchester City keeper Joe Hart is all but set to trade English football for Italian calcio as a move to Torino nears.
In one of the more shocking transfer links we’ve seen this summer, Joe Hart looks set to make the rare swap of Premier League football for Serie A calcio, with Torino as the destination.
Hart’s agent, Jonathan Barnett, admitted to Tuttosport that the England international has given the approval:
“Yes, Joe Hart will play in Torino. It is done. The goalkeeper has said yes to the Granata, and Manchester City have also given the green light. Tomorrow, Hart’s medical will be held in Turin.”
Manager Siniša Mihajlović had asked for a new number one, and it seems as if he will be granted his wish by president Urbano Cairo. On the other end, Manchester City had recently acquired Claudio Bravo from Barcelona, making the decision to depart for Joe Hart much easier.
