Hughes Preparing For Summer Spending

Hughes Preparing For Summer Spending

Blackburn Rovers manager Mark Hughes already has plans in his mind for what the summer will hold as far as transfers goes.

Hughes is understood to have around £10 million to spend at this moment, but should the season go as well as we hope it can do then at its end Sparky might have a little more to play with, and he already has ideas in his mind as to how he can strengthen the squad over the summer to make sure Rovers CAN challenge stronger next season.

Hughes told the Official Blackburn Rovers Website: "The process started a number of weeks ago. We are obviously trying to plan for next year.

"It is a process that carries on right through each season you are involved in.

"We kept our powder dry in January because I didn't think there was anything that we needed to move for that was at the right quality and at the right price.

"The market is a lot more steady and stable during the summer months and I've always felt that you get better value.

"That is where we are. We are just trying to get the best value for the money that I'll have available
."

A lot will depend on where we finish this season and IF this brings us UEFA Cup football, as this will probably attract a better quality player than no UEFA Cup football would, so with extra quality next season we MIGHT even be able to challenge for a Champions League place (providing we KEEP what we have!!!)

With the disappointing displays recently, I feel that 8th is the best we can now hope for at the end of the season (unless Portsmouth have a poor run). McCarthys lack of goals all season, Santa Cruzs dry spell, Derbyshire not being given enough time on the pitch to show his natural goal scoring talent, Pederson being a shadow of his former self and Dunn being selfish have combined to miss out on the 10 points that would have seen us challenging for 4th/5th spot. We need to strengthen in the summer as next season will probably see Spurs, West Ham and Newcastle up to our level by the start of the season. Thank goodness for Friedel, otherwise we would have been in the lower half of the table this season. BENTLY MUST STAY AT ALL COST.
