The Daily Star has some bad news for Manchester City fans here in the Football Transfer Tavern.
The publication have claimed that Citizens defender Micah Richards is not willing to pen a new deal with the club, as he feels the opportunities are simply not there for him.
As one of our punters notes, the player has struggled this season, not only with injuries but also managing to get into the side.
Now it seems that the versatile defender will look for opportunities elsewhere, given he is not convinced that Manuel Pellegrini will give him the opportunities he deserves.
As one of our punters notes over a pint, there will be a host of clubs trying to land the defender’s signature – with Arsenal being long-term admirers and Liverpool keen on the player as well.
Our regulars seem to think that given Richards can play at both centre back and right back, he is a great player to have in a squad.
He will also be available at a knock down price or even for free if he chooses to run down his contract – which of course only has a year left to run.
Do you think Richards needs to leave the club in order to further his career? Let us know your thoughts below.
