Micah Would Take Arsenal Opportunity

Manchester City whizkid, Micah Richards has expressed his desire to one day wear the red and white of the Gunners and play for the team he supported as a boy.

Speaking with lads titty magazine 'Nuts', Richards also revealed his reasons for being a Gooner.

'I was a big Ian Wright fan when I was younger, so I supported Arsenal,' he told Nuts magazine.

'Wright and Patrick Vieira were my idols so yeah, if the opportunity came to play for them one day I'd take it.

'But right now I'm concentrating on trying to keep City in the top half, and we've got the players to do it.'

We have money, we need a centre half, the best one in England is expressing a desire to play for us. What happens next?

Do the words ''value for money'' mean anything to you...couse they`re Wengers motto!

Micah's words should be exactly the inspiration for AW to go out and spend a few quid. This is one of the rare ocassions that I wouldn't mind paying over the odds for an English player.

You don't think he would provide value for money rdc? Even if the kid costs £20M, he's still very young and could play top level football for well over 10 years.

The only thing is Rocky, Man Yoo paid 30m for Rio the duck, so I dread to think what this lad is worth.

But Man Utd always get ripped off.....Wenger knows how to drive a hard bargain. I speculate we could get him for £20M, and that would be a good deal in my eyes.
09/10/2007 10:25:00
yes, i think 20M for him is good value.. a bit expensive, but with FIFA pushing for the home-grown player rule, i think he will be a good buy. he can easily spend the next 12 to 13 years playing top class football at Arsenal. so, 20M sounds good deal to me.
09/10/2007 10:32:00
Where do you get 20 mil from? A caped player at 18? I would say it would be close to double.
09/10/2007 10:38:00
No chance in hell, sorry to be the voice of doom - but the only way we'd get him is on a bosman.
