Everton refuse to match Manchester City star’s £7m per season fee

Everton have cooled their interest in Manchester City’s out-of-favour goalkeeper Joe Hart according to the Daily Mail.

Per-the-source, Hart has been left in limbo after the Toffees indicated that they are unwilling to match the £7 million cost of Hart’s wages and loan fee.

The report goes onto state that Everton boss Ronald Koeman has also been impressed with the performances of his current first choice keeper Maarten Stekelenburg.

The England international keeper has been left on the bench for City’s opening three games and the Sun states that his days are numbered with the imminent arrival of Claudio Bravo from Barcelona.

According to the Mirror, City boss Pep Guardiola will leave Hart out of the starting line-up once again even as the Spanish tactician rotates squad for Champions League return tomorrow.

Hart joined City from Shrewsbury back in 2006 for just £750,000 and is the Citizen’s longest serving player. The 29-year-old international made 47 appearances  in all competitions for City last season and kept 18 clean sheets.
