Sunderland Meet Rovers Asking Price For Benni?!?!

Sunderland Meet Rovers Asking Price For Benni?!?!

Blackburn Rovers manager Paul Ince keeps saying that there will be no more departures from Ewood Park, but the national media are today claiming that a fee has been (or will be) agreed with Sunderland for Benni McCarthy.

These media claims are that Sunderland are prepared to pay £9 million for the South African International, which is understood to be the asking price (even though Benni, and anyone else isn't for sale) and the Black Cats manager Roy Keane will look to wrap this up later this week having moved on from his original target Louis Saha.

Personally if we have been offered (or will be) this amount I would take it!!! McCarthy is still a superb striker but I don't think we will see the striker that was so deadly in his first season at Ewood return again, and with him not getting any younger we would be mad not to accept this wouldn't we??? If we could get three times what we paid for him two-year later after a poor second season we MUST accept the offer, but I'd believe this when I saw it though!!!

If Sunderland have offered £9 million we MUST accept this!!! That's three times what we paid two-years ago, we'd be crazy not to. I don't believe they have (or will )offer this though?

If it is true, that money should be accepted! Because Roque and Robbo are doing well up front; and there's also Matty trying to earn himself a spot; and if this is not enough: J SC is preparing to be a big surprise!

Take it... seriously if this is true lets do it. McCarthy will not get as many games this year as long as J-Rob performs how he did on Saturday. We can then buy a replacement and use the rest for Grella/Pennant.

£9million is a very generous offer for McCarthy considering his age and his contribution to the team last season, and I cant see him ever rediscovering the form of his debut season, the desire just is'nt there anymore, and has'nt been for the best part of a year now!!! If this is a genuine offer then we'd be cazy to turn it down.

I cannot believe that Keane would sanction 9 million for a 31 year old. He could buy Mcfadden from the championship for half that amount. I still think that Benni could get back to his best and if him and Santa Cruz were firing on all cylinders then we would have some strike force. Plus with all the talk of loyalty of players during the summer should we not show some to Benni. At least he did not come out and ask for a transfer THIS SEASON and he could have done using Sparkys departure as a reason or the fact we are not in europe. I fully blame Chelsea for that mess last season. You cannot blame a 30 year old footballer for wanting one last crack at the champions league

If the right money comes in, I say take it and move on. Possibly invest it in a right winger or another attacker?

I think take it, as well. Not sure how Ince will look, tho, after saying no one's leaving, then selling him. Was he just talking up the price?
