Transfer Rumour Rater: City's Richards to Milan

One of the more intriguing transfer rumours being reported recently is the future of Manchester City's Micah Richards.

Il Giorno (via football italia) reports that the England defender has spoken to Adriano Galliani about a move to Milan.

With the Rossoneri looking weak at the back, the pace and athleticism of Richards would certainly be put to use and it would not be unforeseen that he could displace Cristian Zapata or Philippe Mexes from the starting lineup.

Whether Richards' wages could be matched is another question, but without regular first team action, he has seen his international future diminish and a sacrifice in terms of pay packet, in exchange for playing for one of the biggest clubs in world football could become very appealing.

Will Micah Richards join Milan?

City, with 18 months to run on the player's contract, may still demand a sizeable transfer fee, that we know Milan would be loath to pay, having played hard ball with CSKA on the expiring contract of Keisuke Honda.

For now this move seems improbable unless a loan deal can be struck with an option to buy next summer.
