AC Milan have made contact with the representatives of Manchester City defender Micah Richards.

After being confirmed as Milan general manager, one of the first approaches made by Galliani was to Richards' camp.

Il Giorno says Galliani was quick to register Milan's interest after learning of Richards' playing frustrations over the weekend.

The England defender admits he may be forced to leave City if manager Manuel Pellegrini continues to overlook him.
