Santa Cruz Close To City Deal

Santa Cruz Close To City Deal

Blackburn Rovers striker Roque Santa Cruz is on the verge of signing for Manchester City, Vital MC understands.

Mark Hughes signed the 6'2' Paraguayan international last year while he was the boss at Ewood Park, and is widely known to be a keen admirer of the 26-year-old.

The Manchester City manager gave executive chairman Garry Cook his list of wanted players when they were in Hamburg for the weekend friendly and Santa Cruz was believed to be high on Sparky's wish list.

Figures being banded suggest City will have to offer Rovers in the region of £8m to tempt Paul Ince into letting his prize forward leave the Lancashire club.

I think it will be ta-ra for Bianchi if Santa comes to town. Agree with villan, though. More money will surely be required.

I'd happily take him to Spurs to replace Berba if he leaves. £8mil seems a right bargain for someone who scores as many goals and helps create chances for others at the same time. Fair play if you get him, I just wish he was coming to us instead!

And HOW does Vital MC understand this?!?! £8 million, you're taking the ***** aren't you dude? If Bentley can go for anything up to £18 million even if we did sell Santa (which I HOPE not!!!) you'd need to pay at least the same!!!

Hope your info is right Tudor mate, but think the fee may be nearly double the £8m. JB is probably right about Bianchi, if anyone will take him on his wages. Exciting times!!!

i agree, he'll cost much more than 8m. if you do get him he'll be a major coup and will immediately make man city better.
