Manchester City are in advanced talks to sign Malaga goalkeeper Willy Caballero.
Caballero played under Manchester City manager Manuel Pellegrini when he was in charge of Malaga between 2010-2013 and is regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in La Liga. The 32-year-old stopper will be joining the club to provide back-up and competition for Joe Hart, after Costel Pantilimon left to join Sunderland last month. Jul 8 - 5:37 AM

Arsenal may have started the trend of mostly foreign starting line-ups competing for Premier League titles but City are taking it to a new level with only one player on the England roster for Brazil.

Joe Hart will be the undisputed starter in goal for England in Brazil this summer but what will be shocking is that he will be the only representative of the Premier League champions in the 23 man squad. Even at the peak of their "foreign-ness", Arsenal had David Seaman, Sol Campbell, and Ashley Cole playing for England among their French attacking stars. Turn the clock forward to 2014 and only James Milner was even a part-time English starter beyond Hart for City while Jolean Lescott and Gareth Barry were at the fringes of the squad and loaned out respectively as the next most prominent Englishmen playing for the champs.

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart will face no further action from the Football Association following his confrontation with Hull City's George Boyd.

There was concern Hart could face a suspension after he appeared to push his head towards Boyd, but the England man has been cleared of any wrong-doing (other than the yellow card issued at the time) and will be available for Manchester City's two games in Week 31.

Manchester City goalkeeper Joe Hart is available to face Swansea despite requiring five stitches in a gash under his left eye, but David Silva is suspended after amassing five yellow cards.

As well as the above information it is worth nothing that Sergio Aguero, Martin Demichelis, Stevan Jovetic and Micah Richards remain out with injury. Silva's suspension should mean a start for Samir Nasri, while Yaya Toure should return after being rested against Crystal Palace. The Swansea v Manchester City match is the early kick off on New Years Day so we'll get the starting line-ups via Twitter before the Yahoo deadline.

Manuel Pellegrini has confirmed goalkeeper Joe Hart will keep his place in Manchester City's side for their game against Liverpool on Boxing Day.

Costel Pantilimon hasn't made any specific mistakes, but he looked shaky against Arsenal in Week 16 and this was perhaps the opportunity Pellegrini was looking for to bring Hart back in to the fold. After a solid display against Fulham he is set to keep his place over the busy Christmas fixtures and beyond. Good news for him and for England.

The Guardian is reporting that Joe Hart will return to Premier League action for Manchester City against Fulham.

It always seemed like away to Fulham would be where Hart would be eased back into action. Costel Pantilimon has not played terribly well, most recently shipping three goals to Arsenal at the weekend. Therefore Hart is back in the firing lines ahead of the festive run of games.

At his press conference today, Manuel Pellegrini wouldn't come out and say who was starting in goal for Manchester City against Arsenal. That has led to some conflicting reports the in the press, but it does seem like Costel Pantilimon will return.

Joe Hart played well against Bayern Munich, and Pellegrini does expect to reinstate Hart soon. Perhaps in the next few weeks. However, the best reporting seems to indicate that Pantilimon will regain his place against league leaders, Arsenal.

There is no official word from Manuel Pelligrini but Joe Hart has reportedly been dropped out of the Manchester City starting lineup after a horrific few weeks.

Hart's mistakes caught up to him and it's now time for Costel Pantilimon. Pantilimon is available for under 7 million pounds on Yahoo! fantasy and with Manchester City playing Norwich at home, he is a very, very good option. The only risk with Pantilimon is the lack of official confirmation on the change so I would advice caution. Aggressive fantasy managers should start Pantilimon.

Manchester City team vs Newcastle: Pantilimon, Richards, Boyata, Lescott, Kolarov, Rodwell, Garcia, Navas, Milner, Jovetic, Dzeko. SUBS: Hart, Zabaleta, Nasri, Negredo, Silva, Fernandinho, Demichelis

Joe Hart is taken out of the firing line as Manuel Pellegrini names almost a completely different team to the one that lost at Chelsea.

Manuel Pellegrini admitted the manner of Manchester City's defeat by Chelsea was hard to take but refused to single out Joe Hart or Matija Nastasic after the 2-1 loss.

It was horrific mix-up between Hart and Nastatsic, and one that could have big repercussions on the season as a whole as City lost their third away game of the season. The mistake from Nastastic was a rare one but the same cannot be said of Hart, who came rushing out of his goal and appeared to call to the defender to leave the ball very late indeed. The England keeper must eradicate these lapses in concentration from his game, or risk losing his first team place for both club and country.

Manchester City XI: Hart, Zabaleta, Demichelis, Nastasic, Clichy, Garcia, Fernandinho, Nasri, Yaya Toure (C), Silva, Aguero. ---SUBS--- Pantilimon, Navas, Kolarov, Dzeko, Negredo, Milner, Richards.

City have decided to go with just Aguero up top as they'll likely try to catch Chelsea on the counter.

Joe Hart had another difficult night in goal for Manchester City as European Champions Bayern Munich outclassed their hosts in a 3-1 away victory in the Champions League.

Bayern Munich were outstanding all over the pitch, but City didn't help themselves with some shocking goalkeeping and defending. Hart was at fault for the opening goal as he let Franck Ribery's long shot go through his hands and his dip in form is becoming a real concern. Gael Clichy was also guilty of a terrible error for Thomas Muller's goals as he went to sleep to allow the forward to glide through unchallenged and finish smartly, before Arjen Robben wrapped up the win after embarrassing Matija Nastasic and firing past Hart at his near post. 3-1 did not flatter the German side - they were magnificent.

Joe Hart's week has not been a good one between the 3 goals Arsenal scored over the weekend and the two scored by Scotland in England's friendly win.

Yes, neither match counted for anything but Joe Hart seems to be regressing from City's title winning season and his struggles have to be a cause for some concern at the Etihad. Two seasons ago it looked like Manchester United who were the weaker of the Manchester clubs in net but with a big season from a developing David De Gea last year and Hart's issues the goalkeeping advantage is now pretty clearly on the red side of town in the chase for the title.

Joe Hart has told Manchester City's players they must show the character to bounce back and "massively improve" next season.

One assumes Hart is including himself in this critique as he had the weakest season of his career so far, with a number of high profile mistakes for club and country. It's fair to assume his lack of competition for England's keeper spot has played some part in him taking his eye off the ball and he must re-focus ahead of the new campaign.
