Inter Milan have not made an approach for Manchester City defender Micah Richards, according to the England international’s agent.

The Nerazzurri appointed Napoli manager Walter Mazzarri as Andrea Stramaccioni’s successor at the San Siro outfit last month.

The Italian coach is reported to be a long-term admirer of Richards, who is yet to agree a new deal with the Citizens after an injury-hit campaign.

However, the centre-half’s agent Dario Canovi revealed he has not had any contact with Inter but refused to rule out a potential move away from The Etihad.

“I personally have not been contacted by the Nerazzurri but it is possible that Inter are interested because I know for a fact that Mazzarri really likes him,” Canovi told interlive.it.

“He wanted Micah when he was at Napoli, he is an ideal player for his defence and would not fit well into Rafa Benitez’s game (at Napoli).

“What is Richards’ situation at Manchester City? They have offered a new contract, but Richards has not accepted as yet.”

Richards has scored 10 goals in 232 appearances for the Eastlands outfit after making his first-team debut for the Citizens in 2005.
