Monaco make €500,000 bid for Manchester City academy midfielder Taylor Richards

French champions AS Monaco have made an offer of €500,000 (£432,000) for highly-rated Manchester City academy midfielder Taylor Richards, according to Yahoo! Sport France.

Richards is one of many outstanding prospects currently housed in the City Football Academy and after scoring 28 goals for the young Blues, he is wanted by renowned talent-spotters Monaco.

One look at the principality club’s squad shows just how good they are at spotting a young starlet, with teenage striker Kylian Mbappé the most in-demand player in Europe right now, and other young talents such as Thomas Lemar and Tiemoué Bakayoko also wanted by top European sides.

Richards, an attacking midfielder, is an England under-17 international and Monaco’s offer is quite large for a 16-year-old, with no information yet from Yahoo! Sport on how Manchester City have responded to it.
