Inter an 'option' for Richards

The Manchester City defender spent the 2014-15 campaign on loan at Fiorentina and could be set to remain in Serie A, but with the Nerazzurri

Micah Richards has hinted that he could be reunited with former boss Roberto Mancini at Inter next season.

The pair previously worked together at Manchester City, but both have been plying their trade in Serie A this term, with Richards having spent the season on loan at Fiorentina and Mancini having succeeded Walter Mazzarri at the helm of the Nerazzurri in November.

The England international was limited to just seven league starts in Florence, though, and is looking to move onto pastures new.

“The Premier League is fantastic, but I had my best season at City under Roberto Mancini and obviously he’s at Inter Milan now, so maybe that could be an option,” he told the Daily Mail.

“I think he definitely got the best out of me. As a coach I think Mancini was really good, and had he been given more time I think he could have done something special at City.

“I think he has proved he is a top-line manager.”

Mancini guided Inter to an eighth-placed finish having taken over at San Siro in November.
