Liverpool fans have smiles on their faces here in the Football Transfer Tavern, as they have claimed that the club are set to net one of Manchester City’s defenders should Metro be believed.
As one of our punters looks up and quickly checks that the defender in question is not Martin Demichelis, we note that they do not need to worry or reach for the tequila; all they need to do is listen up.
Since January, the Reds have been keen on Micah Richards, who looks set to snub a potential chance to stay at the Etihad Stadium, with City so full of top players and competition.
Reds boss Brendan Rodgers has made it very clear that he wants a new right back, and has been tracking Richards since January. Rodgers will chase Richards’ signature even harder now he has been given the go ahead to land him.
Richards is also able to play across the back four, meaning that his versatility is a major plus for Liverpool, who could well do with some top quality cover at the back.
The City defender himself wants a chance to play week in, week out once again and sees a summer move as the ideal chance to make that happen.
Liverpool fans in the tavern would welcome Richards with open arms but what do you think? Let us know your thoughts below.
