The England shot-stopper made his first competitive start under Guardiola on Wednesday night, in a 1-0 win over Steaua Bucharest in Romania.

After the match, Hart declined to say that the game was his last for the English club, but added that he was confident he and his new manager would reach a solution regarding his future.

"It's not for me to say. It is what it is. You probably know better than me," he said at a post-match press conference, as quoted by The Guardian.

"It's a situation, we have a top manager that the club has wanted for a long, long time and he will have his opinion on things, and outside of the charade and all the rubbish that is being talked, we are dealing with it like men inside and we will come up with a solution.

"Tonight, I played for Man City and I enjoyed it, and I have done every time I have played for Man City."

Hart is expected to be replaced by FC Barcelona goalkeeper Claudio Bravo, who is reportedly already in Manchester to finalise his transfer.

The 29-year-old moved to the Etihad from Shrewsbury Town for a fee of £900 000 (R16.7 million) in 2006.
