Manchester United keeper David de Gea will be replaced by either Joe Hart, Samir Handanovic or Gianluigi Donnarumma, according to reports on Tuesday.
With speculation mounting that Real Madrid are plotting a world-record goalkeeper bid for De Gea, United boss Jose Mourinho has reportedly been drawing up a list of names to replace the Spaniard.
And the Daily Mail claims Hart, who is set to be shown the door by neighbouring Manchester City, is top of their wishlist.
Hart is poised to return to the Premier League after a season-long loan in Serie A in Italy and Mourinho believes the England No 1 could effortlessly fill the void.
It was previously felt City would not allow Hart to join a direct rival, especially their cross-city neighbours, but it’s felt their stance has softened and a deal could be struck should United be reluctantly forced to cash in on De Gea.
The England stopper is joined by AC Milan starlet Donnarumma and Inter’s Handanovic – but it’s felt a deal for Hart would be the easiest to complete.
