Roque Santa Cruz: It's The Final Countdown?

Roque Santa Cruz: It's The Final Countdown?

Google language translator


We're now inside five days until the January transfer window closes. Will Mark Hughes get his man from Asunción..?

The runners and riders are positioning themselves for what could be a final race on this one.

City, having already had bids in the region of £15 million for the 27 year old Paraguayan Blackburn Rovers striker rejected are understood to have stepped back and waited.

Meanwhile Santa Cruz's agent and dad Aproniano Santa Cruz has spoken out over the situation to Paraguayan TV channel Teledeportes:

'As long as the transfer window does not close, negotiations are still continuing.

'I have a feeling that it may be possible. The conditions are real and there are not many differences.

'In a negotiation, the money factor is always the most important.

'According to the City coach, he will keep trying to sign him.'

But then there's the man with the chewing gum and headset, Sam Allardyce:

'We will resist selling anyone if we can.

'It has been very quiet I'm glad to say, but that's not to say it won't resurrect itself.

'We don't have to sell anybody and that's still the case as far as the chairman and me is concerned.'

...he said in his finest English.

The transfer clock continues to tick.

Please Hughes close this file, not because the player is not good, but because the high price required for him, Believe me, after we pulling out the price will fall to half, We showed more interest in the player, Becouse that they greed of us.

'the chairman and me is concerned' haha I'm suprised big Sam passed his coaching exams. Maybe the headset he wears is playing 'teach me English volume 1' in his ear.

Allardyce lates: "One of the issues has always been the replacement. It's not about the size of the bid it's about who can we get to replace Roque. At the moment it isn't there or in place so that's why it would be difficult for us to accept a bid." - Sack this situation now, City.
