Farhad Moshiri, Everton’s ambitious and super-rich new owner will make an astonishing attempt to bring Joe Hart to Goodison Park, with the price tag likely to be around £40 million, according to The Sun.
A deal would only be plausible if incoming Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is successful in bringing in Barcelona’s Marc-Andre ter Stegen to the Etihad. However, Everton’s Iranian money man would be prepared to offer Hart around £200,000 a week to play for the Toffees, who recently parted ways with manager Roberto Martinez.
Manuel Pellegrini, Hart’s former manager at City, is one of many managers believed to be under consideration for the vacant job at Goodison Park, along with Ronald Koeman, Frank de Boer, Rafael Benitez, Unai Emery and David Moyes, according to The Guardian.
Meanwhile, The Daily Mail has suggested that Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City could consider a move for Leicester striker Jamie Vardy and has reported that the England international has a clause in his contract that allows him to move to clubs in the Champions League for £20 million.
According to the report, Vardy was extensively scouted by the Citizens throughout the Premier League season. The 29-year-old led the Foxes to an improbable league triumph with 24 goals, just one behind topscorer Harry Kane.
