Richards On The Verge Of Leaving

Manchester City defender Micah Richards is on the verge of quitting the club where he has been throughout his professional career due to lack of games. Richards is on the periphery of the first-team. However, City have been keeping him up until now primarily to fill the quota of homegrown players. The impressive performances of Pablo Zabaleta at right back have limited Richards to only a handful of appearances this campaign. His contract runs out in 12 months, but City may decide to sell him in the summer in order to recover some transfer fee.
