Sunderland have made an official approach for Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart. David Moyes’ side have officially contacted City officials to inquire about Hart’s availability and cost according to Sky Sources.
Following their 1-1 draw away to Southampton, Sunderland officials attempted to lure England goalkeeper Joe Hart to the Stadium of Light. It’s no secret Hart’s days at Manchester City are numbered following the arrival of Barcelona goalkeeper Claudio Bravo.
Hart’s wages of £140,000 a week will not be matched by Sunderland but reports last night suggested City would pay upwards of 70% of his salary to ensure he receives the best move. The club, the player, and Sunderland are all keen for an outcome on Hart’s future but whether Hart would be willing to move to the north-east is anybody’s guess.
With five days remaining until the close of the transfer window, all parties will be keen to find a common agreement regarding his future and Sunderland are now the first club to officially approach City for the England number one.
