It has been rumoured today that Liverpool are preparing a summer bid for Manchester City defender Micah Richards.
Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez is desperate to add to his squad during this summer’s transfer window and with Richards likely to be available, the 21-year old is seen as a possible arrival at Anfield.
Richards was considered by many as one of the brightest prospects in English football only 18 months ago but for whatever reasons, things haven’t seemed to work out for him at Eastlands.
Ever since Roberto Mancini arrived at Manchester City last December, Richards has struggled to nail down a first team place at the club and there is growing speculation that he will leave the world’s richest club in the coming weeks.
I believe a move would do Richards the world of good. There is absolutely no doubt that Micah has a lot of ability and I for one feel he is still capable of becoming one of the best defenders in the Premier League. It will be interesting to see who he does join this summer, if indeed he does leave City.
Will it be Liverpool?
