Joe Hart asking price lowered from £5m by Manchester City
And if that doesn’t lead to bids for the former England No1 the Manchester club could even let him leave for nothing.
Hart, 31, has been on City’s pre-season tour to the United States and Pep Guardiola praised his attitude.
He missed out on Russia after his move to West Ham turned sour and he wants to feel valued again.
“I need to go somewhere permanent, I think that’s obvious,” said Hart after making his first City appearance since August 2016 in the friendly defeat to Borussia Dortmund.
“I’m experienced. I’ve played at the highest level for a long time and done a lot of things in the game. I need to be an important player at a club and I think that can only happen with a permanent move.”
Despite being in limbo while he looks for a new club, Hart insists he can still win an England recall.
“Of course, I’m 31, I’m young, I’m fit, I’m fresh,” he said defiantly. “I know I’ve got an awful lot to give in the game.”
