Football Manager 2018: 20 Transfer Bargains You Should Snap Up

20. Micah Richards (Aston Villa)


Age: 29

Position: D (RC)

Fee: £1-2m

Micah Richards's story is one of squandered potential. Once tipped as one of England's top prospects at centre-back, the defensive powerhouse is now surplus to requirements at Championship outfit Aston Villa.

The good news is that, at 29 years of age, there's still some of that potential left, waiting for the right coach to unlock it. For around £44 million less than what Gylfi Sigurdsson cost, that manager could be you, and the asking price is a snip considering it will add structure and stacks of experience to your backline.
