Santa Cruz Heading Somewhere South?

Santa Cruz Heading Somewhere South?



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...

In other news, Mancio's Squad continues to take shape, with respect to Andy Smith and The Manchester Guardian...

Why is he asking for a meeting with Mancini to discuss his future??? I could have told him he has no future at Eastlands!

Don't loan him out, just get rid of him. I want no more part of paying his wages and he can enjoy himself outside of England somewhere.

RSC seems like a good guy but unfortunately it's signings like this that make us a target for riddicule. RSC, JL, KT & WB tells you all you need to know about hughes.. and then he tries to convince the World it was nothing to do with him that we paid the ridiculous figures for these guys that we negotiated our way up to. Not Roques fault but the sooner we draw a line under the hughes era the better. Good luck wherever you end up Roque.

We won't miss RSC. He reminds me of Saha - if he's not injured he's injured

Not sure about this. Marseille are on the very verge of signing Brazil's Luis Fabiano for a mere 10 million Euros.

Tublu says it best, another stupid signing by hughes. Crocky is just like ireland, only one good season in their entire careers. Just analyse how poor his record was at bayern before going to blackburn. I was amazed at this signing and im not suprised that rsc has flopped.
