According to The Express, Chelsea could be first in line to sign Manchester City outcast Joe Hart if Thibaut Courtois leaves in the summer.
The England international is currently on a season long loan at Italian outfit Torino after being made surplus to requirements at City.
Pep Guardiola dropped the 29 year-old in place of Willy Cabellero, before signing Barcelona ‘keeper Claudio Bravo. The Chilean may be proficient with his passing game, but has endured an unconvincing start to his City career when defending his goal.
Hart has suggested he may have to force a move permanently and Chelsea could snap him up with rumours emerging Thibaut Courtois is being courted by Real Madrid.
The 24 year-old’s wife and child are based in the Spanish capital, where he spent three seasons on loan with Atletico Madrid.
Hart’s City future remains in doubt, but the chances Guardiola will sell the shot stopper to a Premier League rival are slim.
