Arsenal & Chelsea target too costly for Newcastle

Published Add your comment

Newcastle United have pulled out of the race to sign Manchester City defender Micah Richards, according to talkSPORT. 

The Magpies had reportedly made contact with the Etihad outfit over the possibility of signing the England international, however the Geordies are unable to match Richards' financial demands. 

However, the likes of Arsenal, Tottenham and Chelsea all appear to be interested in the powerful defender, so he could still depart Manuel Pellegrini's side.  

Richards has had a tricky past year at the Etihad as he has struggled with injuries and now has been unable to cement his place in the Citizens side. 

With Richards having just 18 months left on his deal at City, the Premier League big-boys will continue to monitor the defenders situation and could be set to pounce if he continues to struggle in Manchester.

And, with the World Cup only around the corner, Richards could find himself on the move if City decide to let him go.
