Joe Hart is running out of time to end his Manchester City nightmare.
The Englishman has been City's No.1 for the best part of six years now but finds himself on the brink of being sold - or sent on loan at least - by Pep Guardiola.
In the former Barcelona manager's eyes, Hart doesn't possess the technical ability to be his first-choice goalkeeper, so much so that he's sought to bring in Claudio Bravo.

As a result of the Chilean's £17 million arrival and Willy Caballero's presence at the Etihad, Hart has been demoted to third string.
But how would Guardiola deal with the England international should he fail to secure a move away from Manchester? Well, ahead of City's clash with West Ham on Sunday, he explained his plan of action.
Guardiola said: "We want the best for him and, of course, the club is going to help him get the best solution for him.
"If the transfer window is closed and he is here, he has to stay here, he will be treated like everyone.
"He deserves what he deserves, I will try to be fair with him. Until now, he is here and a player for us.
"We're going to speak about the situation in the last days. We're going to decide the best for Joe but for Willy and Angus [Gunn] as well.
"Of course, it is not an ideal situation, but I will respect their contracts. I will be clear what will be the solution. If all four stay here, the best solution is for everybody to be involved in our idea. They are going to be involved in our idea.
"They are going to be used in rotation. So if Joe, Willy and Angus stay, then it won't be the same one who is always on the bench.
"Maybe they go into rotation to find a solution - the best for us and them. They need to play. The situation is not easy right now."
It's interesting to note that Guardiola doesn't even mention Bravo's name in the mix, so he has four goalkeepers to juggle at the Etihad.
Good luck with that one, Pep.
Everton and Liverpool have both been linked with Hart but it seems the 29-year-old won't be joining either of the Merseyside clubs.
