Stories linking Joe Hart with a move away from Manchester City just will not go away.
The England goalkeeper has suffered a huge dip in form over the past 12 months, which has recently resulted in him losing his first team place at the Etihad Stadium.
New manager Manuel Pellegrini hardly seems the most patient manager in the Premier League, and is reportedly already looking for a replacement goalkeeper.
Despite Hart being an England international, and proving one of the crucial players of City’s title triumph in 2012, Pellegrini is still not convinced.
Errors have become a frequent part of his game over the past year, this season especially, as City have already suffered four Premier League defeats on the road.
The Football Transfer Tavern is split as to whether City should look to replace Joe Hart, with some believing the 26-year-old deserves another chance to recapture the form that saw him lauded as one of the best young goalkeepers in Europe.
Others understand that Pellegrini is trying to build a City team capable of dominating on all fronts, and a top class goalkeeper is imperative to achieving this.
With this in mind, we have identified five potential realistic transfer replacements for the England number one.
