Micah is at the crossroads of his City career.
There are certainly mixed messages coming out of both camps when it comes to his ongoing contract negotiations.
City have offered ‘Meeks’ close to £72,000 a week, which is also made up of first-team bonuses and a contract resigning fee, which would be spread over the next four years.
There are also some other ‘add ons’ which would represent a lucrative deal for the majority of ‘top’ footballers out there.
So the question remains, why won’t Micah sign something which will keep him in clover for the rest of his days?
He has already stated he wants to remain “for another ten years” but it’s felt he has been stonewalling the club for a while now.
Richards is in a very strong position and has every right to keep his options open but the time has come for City to call his bluff ahead of a January window.
And should he continue to perform the way he did at Sunderland on Sunday, there will be fewer takers, and our terms do start to look overly generous, English/Academy graduate or not.
