If it was reported in The Sun or the Daily Star, you probably wouldn’t give it the time of day. However, the-ever-so-slightly-more-respected Guardian are reporting that Newcastle are tabling a bid for Manchester City and England defender Micah Richards.
Micah Richards is one of three players Kevin Keegan hopes to sign for Newcastle United before the transfer window closes at the end of this month. Although Keegan is already understood to have made contact with the Manchester City defender’s representatives, Sven-Goran Eriksson is unlikely to accept the loss of one of his team’s brightest talents.
Is Kevin Keegan having a laugh or is there a glimmer of hope due to Richards’ reported wage demands not being met at the City of Manchester Stadium? It’s surely unthinkable that the 19-year-old will leave a club with pretty high ambitions of their own to join the Magpies!
