Very strange that the reliable, well researched story journalists from The Daily Mirror reported last week that Taggart was preparing a 20 million January bid for Micah Richards.
Hard to believe when firstly, united only have a budget of this amount for any entire season and they certainly need more than one player to add to their ageing squad.
Or perhaps Gary Chuckle Brother is finished and they want a top notch right back. Micah certainly is that.
I wonder however, why would Micah want to sign a long term contract with them when Taggart and many of his players are on their last legs. Also little Citeh have already beaten three different united sides this season. So it seems this is idle talk from the Mirror and has little substance.
The Mirror are saying today Micah Richards is now off to Arsenal! Really, perhaps they can explain now why he is not going to very Old Trafford...
You can always tell when we are doing well.
Wait for it, Barcelona bid 20 million for Elano, will follow.
Micah when younger, was an Arsenal fan. So possibly, if the Gunners in five years have 30 million we may trade. Having said that, Lee Dixon played more than 500 games for the Gooners and it was no secret that he was a fanatical City fan who would have loved to have played for us. He didn`t, and possibly Micah won't ever play for them.
The Mirror do know one thing and that is that City are on the up big style and they cannot cope with it. Heaven help us when we start winning trophies!
Meanwhile, every City player is now a target for other clubs, simply because they are quality young players. Shame Giggs and Scholes were not a bit younger as we can now easily afford to buy them, but unfortunately they are getting on a bit now, and Sven doesn`t like old stagers.
With united finding themselves in so much debt they could do with some serious cash so perhaps they will off load Rooney during the January transfer window.
Rooney to CITY is unlikely. There again Ricky Hatton and he are best mates, so you never know.
But back to the other Mirror comment: Micah to join united, no chance. To Arsenal possibly in a few years time.
