Joe Hart: I’m under no illusions that Real Madrid will sign me

Joe Hart will be a free agent on July 1st and this will be for the first time in his career he will be without a club. The former England and Manchester City number one still feels he has a lot to offer and being 33-years-old he still has some years left as a goalkeeper. Therefore, Hart remains optimistic about his future and will not make any haste in finding a new club.

Speaking to BBC, Hart said: “I am young when it comes to goalkeeping. I am even younger when it comes to the mental age of a guy who just wants to go in goal and have people whack balls at him. I’m under no illusions that Real Madrid are going to knock my door down, get [Thibaut] Courtois out, and bring me in.”

“But there is plenty more to come from me. I just need someone to believe in me and I will repay that faith.” Recently Hart was linked with a short-term move to Arsenal after the Gunners lost their first choice Bernd Leno to a potentially serious knee injury. It seems, however, that an offer for Hart, who made 3 Premier League appearances for Burnley this season, will be unlikely.
