Manchester City have been dealt a blow with the news that defender Micah Richards will not be extending his contract, which could lead to the player being sold in the summer. The 25-year-old came through the ranks at City and he has been one of the established players at the club.

However, the form of Pablo Zabaleta has not allowed Richards to even get a look in into the City first-team. Even when Zabaleta has been unavailable, Richards has been unlucky to miss out on the first-team chances due to injury.
