MANCHESTER CITY will give Tottenham the go ahead to launch a £8m move for 21 year old full back Micah Richards. With City boss Roberto Mancini close to drafting in highly rated Jerome Boateng (Hamburg), Richards has been deemed surplus to requirements at Eastlands and will be allowed to leave at the right price.
With Harry Redknapp looking to boost his squad ahead of their first Champions League campaign, Richards would fit the White Hart Lane clubs policy of buying young ,talented home grown players and his flexibility would no doubt be of use given the injury problems suffered by the Spurs back line in recent seasons.
The player himself is thought to be keen on a move south to get his career back on track.
Richards would fit in well in our team because of his ability to play center back or right back. He is still young and can also get forward on the right hand flank for an extra dimension of attack.
