Italian giants AC Milan are set to offer Manchester City’s Micah Richards the first team football he desires, according to talkSPORT.
The 25-year-old has been consistently linked with a move away from the Etihad in recent months, with sources in Italy claiming both Roma and AC Milan are keen to secure his services.
Richards has struggled for regular first team football at his hometown club, with Pablo Zabaleta often the preferred choice at right back.
Milan have endured a difficult start to the season in Serie A. They currently sit ninth in the table, and are yet to secure a place in the last 16 of the Champions League.
They are keen to bring in reinforcements in January in a bid to save their faltering campaign, and Richards has emerged as a top target.
Richards remains desperate for regular first team football as he hopes to force his way into Roy Hodgson’s England plans.
The man who was once considered the natural successor to Gary Neville for the three lions is now behind both Glen Johnson and Kyle Walker in the international pecking order.
Richards was last capped for his country in 2012, and may well be keen to seal a January switch to Serie A in the hope of getting his international career back on track.
