Hart to be offered new Man City deal
Manchester City are set to offer goalkeeper Joe Hart a new five-year contract when he returns from the World Cup in Brazil, according to the Daily Star.
Hart still has two years to run on his current deal, but the Premier League champions are keen to tie him down for longer by offering him £110,000 per week, which is £40,000 more than what he currently earns.
Despite that, Man City are reportedly in the market for another goalkeeper this summer to serve as back-up for the England No.1, with current second choice Costel Pantilimon expected to be released this summer. Malaga’s Willy Caballero, who played under City boss Manuel Pellegrini at the Spanish club, is said to be among their list of potential targets.
Hart has been at Man City since joining from Shrewsbury Town in 2006, and established himself as a regular in the 2007-08 season. After being dropped in favour of Shay Given, he regained his place in 2010, and since then he has been first choice for both the Citizens and England.
