Is Santa Off To Man United?!?!
Blackburn Rovers have lost Mark Hughes this week, could Ewood Park be about to see a player exodus starting with star striker Roque Santa Cruz?!?!
Santa Cruz had been spending the past months stressing how happy he was at Ewood but seems to now be hinting at a move to Manchester United in the wake of Hughes' departure with it claimed the Paraguayan (on International duty at the moments) has told local newspapers that there is a genuine interest in him.
Santa Cruz told La Nacion: "The interest from Manchester United is real.
I'm busy now so my representatives will handle anything if there is a concrete offer."
It is understood that Man United are lining up a £15 million offer for the 26-year-old who bagged 23 goals for Rovers last season after an incredible debut season in England that few expected from the former Bayern Munich star. Manchester City would also be in the running with the obvious ties to his previous manager.
We have already lost Sparky, the majority of the backroom staff and now the vultures are circling looking to pick at the carcass with Brad Friedel and David Bentley (even more so) both mooted with moves away from Ewood in the past 24 hours, with Friedel interesting Aston Villa and Liverpool (again along with Man City) understood to be preparing moves to lure Bentley away next week. Will the Sparky era ending bring a mass player scramble for the Ewood Park exit gates???
