Manchester City defender Micah Richards is rumoured to be on the brink of leaving the club after setting up a meeting with Italian agent Ernesto Bronzetti, reports the Daily Mail.
With two-years left on his current deal and with an FA Cup final on the horizon, Richards was expected to make an extended stay at Eastlands.
But the City and England full-back is planning to discuss a move away from the club.
The 22-year-old was tipped to leave City last season, but stayed on to enjoy a fruitful year in City's right-back position.
Richards has helped City towards the second best defensive record in the Premier League but is reportedly being linked with a move to Juventus and Real Madrid.
Bronzetti was influential in the deal that took Kaka to Real Madrid in 2009 and has close ties with a number of Europe's top clubs.
