Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini cannot rule out selling Micah Richards to Real Madrid.

Real coach Jose Mourinho is making a move for the young defender.

The Daily Star says Mancini would be willing to cash in on him if Real offered a price that was too good to turn down.

A source said: "Real Madrid made ­contact with City a few weeks ago and Micah is waiting to see what City do, but he would definitely be interested in the move.

"Jose Mourinho has always rated him and reckons he would be a great addition to his squad as they look to defend their Spanish title and try to win back the Champions League."
