Real Madrid plot £25m move for Man City star

Real Madrid are plotting a sensational £25million move for Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart, according to the Daily Star.

26-year-old Hart has been added to the Spanish giants list of summer transfer targets, as they look to shake up their goalkeeping department.

Iker Casillas has fallen down the pecking order at the Bernabeu in recent seasons, and knows that his long term future is in serious doubt.

There is even talk that the Real Madrid and Spanish icon could be offered to City in part-exchange for Hart.

Current Real Madrid number one Diego Lopez is yet to convince manager Carlo Ancelotti that he is the long term solution in goal, and is also a reported target for AC Milan.

Hart shares the same representatives as Gareth Bale, who made the switch to Real in a world record breaking deal last summer.

The England goalkeeper has bounced back and is now showing close to his best form again, having been dropped by manager Manuel Pellegrini earlier in the season following a series of high profile errors.

However, Hart revealed over the weekend he has still not gotten over his treatment earlier in the season, with the comments giving Real belief they could tempt him to La Liga this summer.

“I wanted to play, but I wasn’t playing so I had to work hard and wait for my chance again.”It’s tough to say because that’s probably one of the main reasons I’ve not really spoken about it,” Hart said.”I don’t feel it’s a case of that side of things being really solved. I’m still training hard – as I would be whether I was in or out of the team – and I’m always working to improve my game.”I don’t want it to seem as though everything is fine or that it was part of my life that I will forget because I’m still living it and I am trying to live in the moment more recently.

“The past is the past and we don’t know what lies ahead in the future – so it’s better to live day by day.”
