£25m Bid For Santa Cruz But Times Running Out

£25m Bid For Santa Cruz But Times Running Out

Google language translator

Manchester City has put a late bid in for Blackburn Rovers striker, Roque Santa Cruz.

With only 30 minutes left on the transfer window City have bowed to Rovers demand and it is believed the transfer may go through on time.

Because of the bad weather, the Football Association has extended the window by a few hours but only if the clubs involved can prove the deal was agreed prior to the 1700 hours GMT deadline.

£25million! when Robinho only cost £7million more! I hope that Blackburn's disgraceful behaviour over this transfer really comes back to bite them. Hopefully we'll have bigger fish to fry (or bid for) in the summer. Blackburn can rot.

What happened? LOL many of you expecting Benzema,Villa or any other super star like in last moment.Well i told you already Robinho was a different case and I will be very eager to see who will be next superstar to join you if you remain out of the top 6 with no European football.I know who will be? It will be Augerro.

I'm surprised we let Jo go out on loan when we have nobody with any "physical presence." It seems that if you get the wrong side of Hughes he just sends you out on loan. So Ben Haim and Jo out... Nobody in today. But good news we rejected the offer for Johnson. If he can get back to full fitness quick then we should get him back in the team...

Why does money matter? I don't understand why everybody is bothered how much we spend, its not our money, if our owner is willing to spend let him why do people want to save his money?

cAN I SAY SOMETHING FROM BEING AN OUTSIDER.i AM REALLY SURPRISED YOU DIDN'T BUY ANYONE.i WAS ALMOST SURE No superstar will join you at last day in this window because no matter how big you offer who will they get in this short time because all of them are Elite clubs and they have to answer to fans.But no mid signings like RSC,or a CB.Hm I guess HUGHES in on his way and the management didn't want to spend on his wish lists.
