Santa Not Planning Ewood Exit

Santa Not Planning Ewood Exit

Blackburn Rovers striker Roque Santa Cruz has NO intention of leaving Ewood Park this summer, despite reported interest from Manchester United.

The exploits of Santa Cruz this season have inevitably seen him capture the interest of other teams, with Man United understood to be interested in the Paraguayan following a near dream debut season in the Premier League. However, although he did go as far as to admit that if he did make a move it would be to another English club, he played down the Manure interest and again stressed how happy he is at Ewood.

Santa Cruz is quoted as telling a Radio Station in Asuncion: "If I have to be transferred I expect it to be inside England because I would like to stay in this country.

"To tell you the truth I'm not thinking about leaving Blackburn Rovers.

"I know about the interest from Manchester United after what has been said in the press but nobody has spoken with me about that
."

Rovers have NO need to sell, so they WILL NOT sell unless players want to leave and they all seem happy enough where they are don't they!!!

It's hard to say no when Manure come calling isn't it, hopefully these links are nothing more than media gossip as if they did make an offer then he might find it hard to say no. However, I FULLY expect Santa Cruz to be here again next season.

Great news for you. After his performances this season, it's no surprise that he's being linked with Man U. I would love to have him in our team!

Santa Cruz satyed at Bayern for year without getting in the team, he has moved to Rovers who along with hard work from himself has shown wot he can do when fit! I believe him when he says that he owes Hughes and expect him to stay. Why would he want to move to Utd and find himself in the same position as he was at Bayern, not starting every week!!

I read an article in the paper about this - and I was delighted. He said he wanted to stay, things are going well and he wants to repay Hughes... why can't all footballers be like this??

I remember Santa's Paraguyan pals on here saying he is a loyal guy and wouldn't jump ship at the first chance and his words strengthen this sentiment, which pleases me. I think he will be with us next season. But may I add why is the price tag only £10million?!?!?!

Ignore that £10m price tag, nobody's going to get him off us that cheap. Its a figure being bounced around by sections of the media with absolutely nothing to back it up. We've never quoted him as being worth £10m, and we have had no offers for him as of yet. City enquired about him during the transfer window but that was about it, nothing concrete.
