No Release "Claus" In Santa's Contract
Blackburn have strongly denied claims that star striker Roque Santa Cruz has an £18million release clause in his contract.
Rovers sent City boss Mark Hughes back from where he came when they reportedly had a £12m bid turned down by his former club for Roque in the summer.
Roque was then also misquoted about a move to Man City last week, even though the quotes which were taken out of context then fuelled rumours about a move.
But the Paraguayan repeatedly insists that he is happy at Ewood Park, so do his agents.
However, what are the odds of the media ignoring the denial and going full steam ahead to fill the papers with Santa to City rumours until January.
I however don't think that John Williams and co. would put a clause in his contract as that would be silly considering how that snookered us with Craig Bellamy a few years back.
