Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart is on the verge of turning his back on the club after refusing to sign a new contract.

Hart’s main gripe is thought to be money orientated. The 21-year-old is believed to be pulling in £5,000 a week; however, the England U-21 wants at least double that amount.

A source close to Hart said…

‘After the season he has had it was a real slap in the face. He was appalled by what they offered.’

The 6’5′ shot stopper signed for Manchester City in May 2006 from Shrewsbury Town in a deal, which could have rose to £1.5million, depending on first team appearances.

The news has disappointed many of the City faithful especially after fellow keepers Kasper Schmeichel and Andreas Isaksson are rumoured to be close to quitting the club.
