Joe Hart open to Manchester United move this summer

The Manchester City legend was sent to Italy by Pep Guardiola, and when he returns from his loan, he might go to City's biggest rivals. WHAT???

After almost a year since Pep Guardiola made a shocking, controversial decision to send Manchester City legend Joe Hart on loan to Torino in Italy, we have gotten used to it. Sure, it hurts to watch Claudio Bravo and Willy Caballero alternate starts and not come close to replicating Hart's heroics, but we've accepted and moved on.

Hart is set to return from his loan spell this summer, and given that Guardiola could be signing a new goalkeeper in the summer transfer window, it's safe to assume that Hart won't be staying at the club. The England No. 1 is most likely to be sold, and he has made clear multiple times that he wants to play in the Premier League.

There's no doubt that a few Premier League teams will be looking at Hart, but there's one team that might sign him that we never expected.

Manchester United might lose their superstar shot-stopper David De Gea, who has reportedly agreed to a move to Real Madrid this summer. If that happens, José Mourinho will look for a new starting keeper, and who is his main transfer target? Yup, Joe Hart, who is also open to a move to City's biggest rivals to return to England in a big way.

Of course, this is all speculation, but hopefully this will never happen. I can't imagine Joe Hart at United. I just can't.
