Silly Season Starts With Santa Cruz Signing
Google language translator
The New Year is about to dawn and yes, we can officially say the 'silly season' starts with the expected signing of Blackburn Rovers striker, Roque Santa Cruz.
From now until the transfer window closes on 2 February Manchester City FC are going to be in the back pages of every newspaper, while Sky Sports News will be focusing on the club like never before.
City fans can expect at least four or five world-class signings beginning on 2 January when, as expected, Roque Santa Cruz signs for an estimated £18million.
On New Years Eve the Daily Mail published the following story...
'Manchester City will kick-start the January sales by agreeing a fee of £18million with Blackburn for striker Roque Santa Cruz in the next 24 hours.'
'Talks are at an advanced stage, with both clubs keen to complete the move quickly. City manager Mark Hughes is anxious to secure a player he signed for Blackburn from Bayern Munich for a bargain fee of £3.8m just 16 months ago...'
Yes, you've guessed it, the moment has arrived, and so has the 'silly season.'
