Newcastle In Talks On Manchester City Defender…
Not a day is going by now without Newcastle being linked to at least one player in advance of the January window.
The justification being that Newcastle United are a club that will once again do business in the winter window rather than summer.
While he has just less than two years left on his contract and hasn’t made a start this season under their new manager, I just can’t see how deals like this will, rightly or wrongly, ever come to pass under Mike Ashley.
Richards is undoubtedly a decent player and even if you take away his ambitions and the other clubs that would be sure to be interested, the talk is of a £15m price on the defender’s head and it is hard to imagine him taking a pay cut from the mega wages he’ll be on at Manchester City.
When we are linked with a foreign player I’ve never heard of and have to constantly check the spelling of his name when I’m typing, I always feel there is at least a very small chance there could be something in it.
When it is an established Premier League player on established Premier League wages at one of the top clubs…forget it.
