Micah denies £100k wage demand

The 23-year-old has two years left to run on his present deal and

is in talks with City about an extension. Reports have suggested

Richards is looking for a six-figure weekly salary, something the

England international – currently on tour with City in the United

States – strongly denies. “I notice that one (newspaper) was

claiming this weekend that I was demanding £100,000 per week

before I sign a new contract at City,” Richards told mcfc.co.uk.

“That is nonsense. They don’t know what has been said, offered, or

asked for, so instead they just make up a figure which makes

everyone think that I am being greedy. “It’s annoying but I suppose

it goes with the territory these days.”
