Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini has revealed that goalkeeper Joe Hart is poised to sign a contract extension as early as Saturday, the Guardian
The England No.1’s current deal ends in the summer of 2016, but talks over fresh terms have been lengthy, leading to some rumours that his days at the Etihad Stadium could be numbered. Should Hart sign, he is expected to receive a salary of £110,000 per week, but that could rise significantly depending on his performances.
He would also join a number of teammates in agreeing fresh terms with the Premier League champions in recent months, with David Silva, Aleksandar Kolarov, Samir Nasri, Edin Dzeko, Sergio Aguero and Vincent Kompany all extending their stays since the beginning of the season.
Pellegrini has praised Hart for responding to the competition provided by summer signing Willy Caballero with some outstanding performances, and also said: “I always said it is important for this club to keep Joe with us. He is a very good goalkeeper and not only a very good goalkeeper, he is a very important player for the squad also. So maybe in the next day you will have good news.”
