Manchester United are apparently interested in signing Micah Richard, who is unhappy at Manchester City.

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is now being linked with a move for Micah Richard after reports from City claim that they are keen to bring in a new first team right back.

Manchester City have been heavily linked with Barcelona Right back Daniel Alvez to replace Richard in the squad.

With Manchester United losing Gary Neville to retirement last week Alex Ferguson will want to replace the England legend with a young English defender and Micah Richards fit that description.
