Micah Richards: Has no desire to leave Manchester City

A product of the Blues' academy system, Richards is the longest-serving player at the Etihad Stadium.

He has remained one of few constants throughout a period of much change, with City's playing staff having been overhauled on a regular basis since Sheikh Mansour took ownership of the club.

Richards's undoubted ability, coupled with his versatility, has kept him a part of things under a string of bosses, but he appreciates that he cannot take his place for granted.

With competition for places at City as fierce as ever, the 25-year-old knows there may come a point when he has to look elsewhere for regular game time.

Richards, who has 18 months to run on his current contract, told The Sun: "I'd sign tomorrow but I've been here 11 years. I'm getting to that age where I'm not 18 anymore.

"I'm 25 and you really want to be playing every week. If I can do that here, it would be perfect.

"I don't really ever want to leave City, but there might come a time when I have to assess it and see where I am."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
