The Spanish giants are weighing up a shock move for the Manchester City keeper.

Hart, 26, has been added to Real's wanted list as they prepare to shake up their goalkeeping department.

Real and Spain icon Iker Casillas has fallen down the pecking order at the Bernabeu and knows his long term future is in serious doubt.

Casillas, who has been relegated to the role of back-up keeper, could even be offered to City as part of an exchange deal involving Hart.

Current Real No.1 Diego Lopez has not convinced boss Carlo Ancelotti he is the long-term successor to Casillas and is also a target of Italian giants AC Milan.

Hart shares the same representatives as Gareth Bale, who joined Real for a world record £85m last summer.

Although he was axed earlier this season by City boss Manuel Pellegrini following a series of costly blunders, he has bounced back to regain his best form and his place as City's first choice.

But he also admitted earlier this week that he has still not got over his treatment.

Hart also accepts he can no longer take his place in the team for granted and expects to miss out on some big games in the future.
