United - Surprise Transfer Target?

United - Surprise Transfer Target?

One shock rumour of the day that might have you opening your eyes wide suggests that we may be looking a doing some business with Manchester City.

Now usually and business done with City relates to them taking our cast-offs, but not this time.

According to one source on the internet, Sir Alex Ferguson is looking at making an offer for the City defender, Micah Richards.

Richards was once tagged as belonging to the next golden generation and at one time was considered an automatic selection for the England squad.

In recent years he`s slipped from that lofty pedestal and has been starved of first team opportunities across the city.

But, like they say, form is temporary and class is permanent.

Would the potential signing of Micah Richards be viewed as a positive venture into the transfer market or is he best left alone?

No hard feelings to you Swampites but for £12 million you can have him gift wrapped to your nice manager Mr Taggart.

I would take great care with this one. With Richards it looks like an attitude issue but if anyone can sort that out it is your manager

we were linked with him in his prime, not sure we'd be interested at all now!

True Pedmachine, a lot of talent, just needs a good guide to channel it.

Loads of potential but then again so does Rafael.

Not a bad call on Rafael. Lots of energy and a bit of a mean streak. He could be costly in terms of cards in the Premier League. A lot of these kids need to be taught basic defending, marking-up and tackling. Richards certainly needs to adopt this.

He is not better than Rafael at all. Rather we spent that money on left footed winger!

He's not even close to rafael but for 12 million I'll say he is. Good luck swamp dwellers.
