Bentley May Follow Hughes

With Blackburn Rovers on the verge of losing Mark Hughes the 100 million dollar question is, 'will David Bentley follow?'

Rovers have given Manchester City permission to talk to their illustrious manager following the demise of Sven-Goran Eriksson however, would midfielder David Bentley follow 'Sparky' to Manchester City.

Speculation surrounding the future of Rovers and potentially David Beckham's England midfield replacement has been on the cards for months. The 23 year-old Bentley, a former Arsenal youth prodigy is known to be unsettled at Ewood Park with Tottenham Hotspur leading the chase to sign the free kick and corner specialist.

Bentley is a known admirer of the former Manchester United icon and know doubt must be considering his options whilst flying back from the Caribbean.

Rover's fans must be sat on the edge of their seat waiting for the inevitable!

oi, haaaands off bentley, if you have hughes you cant have bentley too, that just would not be fair!

Fairness doesn't come into it whitey. It's the power of money and success which plays the part of fairness. Oh Happy days, unless you support Blackburn Rovers!
Tudor
I understand that Bentley wants away from Blackburn anyway, with the rumour that Spurs was his destination, however he was on arsenals books and that would not be well received. We have the Europeon place albeit by the back door. First we need is for Hughes to want to come here before Chelsea start making overtures.
Buzz Lightyear
You lot are deluded if you honestly think you have a chance on landing hughes! 2 reasons. 1. he is a red, he wants to boss united one day and if he goes to you lot and fails, which to be fair, with shinawatra, he would be a mini slump away from the sack and then would never manage United having failed with the blue side of the city and 2. he is doing this to force chelsea to commit one way or the other. If chelsea appoint Mancini or Scolari, hughes will turn down city IMO. If I am wrong, then you have an awesome manager and good luck, but I wont believe it unless i see the ink dry on the contract myself!

Tudor, u say happy days unless your a rovers fan, and your probbly correct, but being honest, I think hughes is using this to say to chelsea "im available, come and get me" so id say theres about a 30% chance hes going to city, 30% he will stay with Blackburn, and 40% Chelsea, providing chelsea do actually want him. But for whilst Rovers fans are a bit down, we are still loyal, and dont support manure =)

Q: Can we also take Cruz please ?! A: Has anyone told you a Blackburn make a liquidate. :)
city 81
with signings like luka modric in the bag, and dos santos on the way from barcelona, surely its spurs over city! add lennon to the deal and it looks even more likely!
lillywhites101
if sparky does leave (dont get excited ya clowns, i meant for chelsea, not you lot) then I fully expect Bentley to leave, probably to the team that offers the best deal, be that money or cash plus players. As for Cruz, hes just had a career season, first season at Rovers, he aint going anywhere IMO. would be surprised if we do cash in on him
BomBom
In my opinion you can keep Hughes and the overrated Bently who is not fit to lace Beckham's shoe laces.
alphieblues
It may well be that Hughes is trying to force the hand of Chelski, but he certainly is not there preferred choice, according to reports, they are still trying to negotiate a deal for Ancelotti with drogba as bait. Abramovic does not like a no for an answer and my feeling is that if he wants a guy then he will get him. Chelsea and United are becoming bitter rivals and if Hughes does want the United job when in a few years it becomes vacant I cannot see Chelski releasing him to go there.
Buzz Lightyear
City 81 cruz is not the player for City, what we want is the guy that crosses the ball for cruz to score. We have loads of good strikers what we need is someone to supply the balls into the box.
Buzz Lightyear
The other fact about hughes is, that like Svennis, he is not our first choice either, but one way or the other it will be sorted sooner than later.
Buzz Lightyear
Yes, Buzz, That what we was needed in last season.
city 81
city 81..I had a text yesterday from my nephew in Kuwait he said "Sven gone interviewing Hughes what's that all about" I replied to him and said don't worry Zico is one of the favourites to take over. My nephew is married to a Turkish girl, he said Oh no !!! she is a fanatical Fenerbache fan. This whole episode is putting the family in turmoil LOL !!!
alphieblues
With the rumours now flying again, re Hughes and chelsea, I don't see the point in interviewing him, unless Chelsea declare no interest.
Buzz Lightyear
haha alphie, What you do in your frind :) But his wife must know we had give them anilka before in cheapest prices & Now is the time for reciprocity :)
city 81
Agreed city 81
alphieblues
I am sure you may get linked with half Blackburns squad now you have Hughes.
dazza71
Only those who are any good dazza71. In short that just leaves Bentley (lol)
