Micah Richards is set to become the highest paid player at Manchester City.

The 19 year-old England defender will be handed a new deal worth £50,000-a-week, says the Mirror, to keep him away from Manchester United and Chelsea.

The contract will be worth £10.4 million in total, but City acknowledge they face a battle to keep him beyond the end of this season, with United and Chelsea preparing £30m packages to land him next summer.
