Manchester City are preparing to sell defender Micah Richards. The Daily Express says Bacary Sagna's expected arrival on a free contract from Arsenal will lead to the departure of City's longest-serving player Richards.

He has attracted interest from a number of Premier League clubs, including Arsenal, Liverpool and Newcastle. City will be looking for around £5m for Richards who has only one year left on his contract.
