Following the senior departures of Petrov, Sylvinho, Garrido and imminently Ireland, VMC understands that Roque Santa Cruz is edging towards signing for Marseille...
Santa Cruz is understood to have asked for talks over where he stands at Eastlands with Roberto Mancini and the big Paraguayan striker is attracting interest from not only the French Champions, but also clubs in Greece and Turkey.
Olympique Marseille are said to be in pole position and are in hope of a loan signing.
Since signing for Mark Hughes last summer after repeated City bids were knocked back following his knee surgery at Blackburn Rovers, the forward has achieved next to nothing at City outside of an outstanding performance on BBC's A Question of Sport.
However, City's board are prepared to take a massive hit, rather than agreeing a loan on the likeable, ever smiling striker and would be thrilled to bag half of the crazy £17,500,000 that Sparky took the fee to 13 months ago for a gleeful Rovers.
Since that date, Crocky, as he has become unfortunately known around town has started for City on a pisspoor 6 occasions.
All things considered, a bordering on the obsessive late bid from Fulham could yet scupper the French south coast Champions League contenders.
More transfer tomfoolery on VMC as we get it...
