Torino keen on extending Joe Hart's loan deal from Manchester City

The England global, who has 70 caps to his name, had been City's first-choice goalkeeper for some time, but Pep Guardiola cast him aside and brought Claudio Bravo in from Barcelona in his place.

It remains to be seen whether Hart will actually stay in Italy, with the goalkeeper recently admitting he could potentially return to England.

Speaking at his pre-match press conference today (via ESPN FC), Torino boss, Siniša Mihajlović, confirmed newspaper reports that the club can only manage a loan deal, with the fee City want well out of their range.

The news of City selling Hart will upset many Citizens who believe the goalkeeper has been treated unfairly by his manager and not giving the opportunity to prove himself this season.

Joe Hart could extend his loan spell at Torino for a second year amid claims that there is little interest being shown in signing the Man City stopper this summer.

The 29-year-old is on loan from Manchester City following Pep Guardiola's decision to sign Claudio Bravo in August.

"At the most, we can take him on loan for another year, but it depends on what Manchester City want to do and what he wants too".

On Thursday, Torino formally requested another year-long loan for Hart, who has kept three clean sheets in 30 appearances for the Serie A side.

"We want to know soon, because if we have Hart next year..."

Manchester City's Joe Hart is allegedly wanted by Chelsea, Everton and West Ham United.
