Man City offer Hart wage deal with option to buy


JoeHartAccording to various media reports, Manchester City will subsidise Joe Hart’s £100,000 per week basic wage by fifty percent as part of a season-long loan deal on the table.  City heavily subsided the keeper’s wages last season at Seria A side Torino and have been forced to offer the same again due to lack of interest or competition from other clubs.

West Ham are reported to be paying just £50,000 per week for the England stopper with the normal bonus add-ons for clean sheets, win bonuses, cup runs, league position and European qualification.

Manchester City initially valued their player at £25m but again the reports suggest this has been lowered to £12m with add-ons of £3m for an option to buy for the Hammers at the end of the season loan.

The loan move which has yet to be completed has created speculation of the exit of one of the current two West Ham keepers. Darren Randolph has been linked with a move to Middlesbrough or newly promoted Newcastle while Crystal Palace are said to be eyeing Adrian should he become available.

    Sounds good to me – get him in quick!

    50k a week is a lot better if true but I was keen on him even at the higher value because he is the England number 1 and should be good for our profile.

  • Radai Lama says:

    No brainer for me.A loan at 50k a week is well worth it.

  • blimeylimey says:

    Whilst I believe Adrian is a top 10 premiership keeper, Joe Hart will improve West Hams defence remarkably…….

    I don’t think there’s that much difference to Adrian , both prone to gaffs , but would take him over randolph all day long , never rated hart as england’s g/k no 1 we simply didn’t have many to choose from , butand will take up the reigns soon and probably Pickford as no 2 IMO, hart was and is overrated and does not warrant the money that’s on the table,
    If anything it will upset Adrian as the same scenario did with sakho which is still raging this pre-season 2 striker persuit , personally I’m holding back on the nappys until buisness is done , or not ! 🙂 far to much speculation which is bringing the beards out in force 🙂
