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.
