Santa Cruz Open To Man City Move???

Santa Cruz Open To Man City Move???

Blackburn Rovers striker Roque Santa Cruz has been quoted as basically saying that he wouldn't mind joining Manchester City.

The Paraguayan International signed a new four-year contract in the summer to ward off interest from Man City (among others) but with them now VERY MUCH in the money it is understood that Santa Cruz could be one of many players they look to recruit in the New Year.

Santa Cruz told Radio Station Primero de Marzo: "Manchester City is a team that has a very important financial support that is getting prepared for winning the title.

"I am very happy at Blackburn but I like the idea of playing for a team that will be fighting for important objectives.

"I will keep on doing what I do at Blackburn but if the coach of Manchester City is interested in me I would like to join Robinho in that team. He is a wonderful player and I would like to play next to him.
"

Have you ever noticed that these stories usually come out more around the International break, usually when he is back in South America? No doubt he was asked a question, which he answered and this now leads everyone to think that he DOES want to go. Santa has merely stated an admiration for City and a fondness for Robinho, and a desire to play alongside him nothing more (and words have probably been twisted to suit those printing them as well!!!)

At least IF City did come in for Santa in January we know they WOULD pay a huge amount for him, which wouldn't really be much consolation but it should at least give us money to spend. If He wasn't happy at Ewood he wouldn't have signed a new contract would he!!!

Roque was quoted out of context. I heard the interview, and it was somthing like this. Interviewer: So, Roque, we understand that M.City is after you Roque (R): Manchester City is a team that has a very important financial support that is getting prepared for winning the title, and I understand they have many players on their "wanted" list, and is not just my name that is mentioned, they have many options. I: And how do you like the idea of going there: R: I A M H A P P Y here at Blackburn, but if there is again an offert for me, it should be one that the club can't resist, otherwise I am staying. I: Would you like to have Robinho as a partner? R: Well, Robinho is a great player and anybody would feel honoured to play next to him. And that was it...Roque is not planning on leaving any time soon. By the way, he didn't come to Paraguay...he is recovering from his injury. Roque & Rovers R 1!

Nothing to worry about here actually. We all know already what Roque is like, don't we?

I guess we'll find out one way or the other in January, that's assuming City are even interested in signing him!
