The Daily Mail believe that Manuel Pellegrini’s men are set to make a move for Victor Valdes.
However, Hart has won his place back in the City team of late and looks to be back to somewhere near his best.
The Spain international stopper will be available on a free transfer at the end of the season after admitting his willingness to find a new challenge in his career.
Despite the likes of Monaco being linked with a move for Valdes, City have emerged as a potential suitor also.
It remains to be seen just how much confidence Pellegrini has in Hart, which will play a considerable role in whether City move for a new goalkeeper at the end of the season.
