Manchester City have agreed to a season long loan of Micah Richards to Serie A side Fiorentina.
With Bacary Sagna and Pablo Zabaleta already in tow, Richards was never going to see much time at right back for the Sky Blues without a rash of injuries so the move makes sense as the rare case of an English player makes the move to Serie A. Mon, Sep 1, 2014 05:21:00 PM

With Mathieu Debuchy presumably out the door to Arsenal, Newcastle have been linked with Micah Richards, Daryl Janmaat, and Ricardo van Rhijn among others as potential replacements at right back.

That Mathieu Debuchy and his sill haircut are headed out the exit door and toward the entrance at the Emirates Stadium seems pretty well set in stone. What comes next is that Newcastle have to identify a replacement for one of their better players last season. Micah Richards, long touted as having great potential, has been injured a lot and generally failed to move past great-athlete-with-questionable-skills/instincts. Part of the issue could be that Manchester City have upgraded the roster significantly at exactly the time he would have wanted to be breaking in as a first team regular. If he can stay healthy he might be a great "buy low" option for the Magpies. If not, buying Debuchy's successor abroad probably makes more sense financially.

Manchester City are willing to accept a knockdown fee for Micah Richards.

Richards made just two Premier League appearances for the club last season and has fallen down the pecking order due to injuries and the form of Pablo Zabaleta. Reports suggest City are open to offers that would include significant add-ons based on appearances, given his injury history. Arsenal have been linked with a move for the right-back after Bacary Sagna moved in the opposite direction last month, while Newcastle and Liverpool have also shown interest.

Micah Richards, who was just playing himself back into contention after a hamstring injury, left today's League Cup tie with another injury.

Richards was replaced by Pablo Zabaleta. Even if the injury was indeed just a cramp, it would seem likely that the Argentine keeps the right-back spot against Norwich City this weekend.

Sky Sports understands Manchester City are to open talks with Micah Richards about a new contract.

This is surprising news. Micah Richards is no longer guaranteed a starting place in the Manchester City team, having lost his right-back slot to the outstanding Pablo Zabaleta - and he is unlikely to oust Vincent Kompany or Matija Nastasić for a place in the center of defence. Richards still has two years left on his current deal so signing a new longer term contract would suggest he's happy to play the role of squad-player for the foreseeable future.

Manchester City are planning to hold contract extension discussions with defenders Micah Richards and Pablo Zabaleta.

Zabaleta has been a star performer for City so there is no surprise that he will be offered an extension, but Micah Richards may need to think about his future. The powerful defender has lost his spot in the City team - to Zabaleta - and cannot afford to spend another season on the bench as he enters the peak years of his career.

Manchester City fought back from 3-0 down to beat Chelsea 4-3 thanks to a late winner from Micah Richards, in a thrilling friendly at a sold-out Busch Stadium in St Louis.

Micah Richards hasn't had much to smile about this season after another injury hit campaign so this will provide him with a little bit of comfort as he completed a terrific City comeback. It also sounds like Edin Dzeko had a big impact, scoring two of City's goal and Javi Garcia chipped in with a goal and an assist. Demba Ba, Cesar Azpilicueta and Oscar had put Chelsea 3 goals up.
