Richards urges Man City to sign Diego Costa

Former Man City defender believes Diego Costa will be a great addition to the Citizens’ squad.

Manchester City

have had a slow and steady start to the season and are currently second in the Premier League table, chasing

Manchester United

.

The Citizens have been facing a mild struggle in the attacking line, as their top scorer is currently their midfielder,

Phil Foden

, with 9 goals in all competitions.

Former Man City defender,

Micah Richards

believes

Diego Costa

can be a great addition to the Citizens’ squad and win them the Premier League title.

“Manchester City are already on a ridiculously good run of form but if they signed Diego Costa now, he would win them the Premier League - I am sure of it,”

Richards said.

“Costa is 32 and I am not suggesting he is a long-term solution for City up front, but the former Chelsea striker is a free agent after ending his Atletico Madrid contract in December, and can sign for anyone for nothing.

“Why not get him in until the end of the season? He would do more than just ruffle a few feathers and be a pain in the backside for opposition defenses - he is a proven finisher who would offer Pep Guardiola's side a proper plan B.

“Yes, you would have to cover Costa's wages, but the massive difference he could make to City's season would make that worthwhile.”
