Joe Hart deal of 'genuine interest' to Man Utd boss Mourinho

The Hammers made enquiries at the beginning of last season after Hart's relationship with City broke down when new boss Pep Gaurdiola brought in Claudio Bravo and picked Willy Caballero as his backup which lead to Hart leaving on a season long loan to Italian club Torino.

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart is expected to be sold this summer, and AC Milan have emerged as a possible destination for the England man.

Hart, 30, is more likely to move to the London Stadium as City are keen to not send one of their players to a close rival.

West Ham are far more likely to be Hart's next club; he needs to play regular first-team football to retain his place as England's No. 1 ahead of the 2018 World Cup in Russian Federation.

However, if Manchester United were to sell David De Gea to Real Madrid before the start of next season, then Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho would be keen on signing the England worldwide too.

As it stands, the scale of Hart's apparent wage demands would make a permanent move to West Ham very hard, but both parties would consider a loan agreement, it seems, although that also depends on the fee demanded by City.

He was part of the squads that won the Premier League in 2012 and 2014 while he also has winners medals in the League Cup and the FA Cup while internationally, he won his seventy-first worldwide cap as England drew 2-2 with Scotland earlier this month.
