Rovers Reject City Bid For Santa Cruz

Rovers Reject City Bid For Santa Cruz

Blackburn have rejected an improved offer for Santa Cruz from Man City. Mark Hughes moved for the striker he signed for Blackburn but the bid was turned down outright.

This looks like a statment of intent from Rovers. The bis was significantly higher than the £12 million City bid in the summer.

Former Rovers boss Hughes said - 'We have made an improved bid, a substantial bid, and it was rejected,'

'We still want to bring Roque Santa Cruz to the club if we can, but he's still Blackburn's player and at the moment they don't want to deal at the level we are at.

'We will make any future decisions in regards to their response.

'We bid £12million in the summer and it (the latest offer) was significantly higher than that.

'We will now have to wait and see.'

Rovers look to be standing firm on Santa Cruz. The 'news' that he was close to signing seems to be the usual media speculation.

Only 23 days to go until the end of the window and it will be interesting to see whether City will come back.

30 million at least, they paid 32 for a midfielder so for a good forward who knows!

I'm sure they will be back in with a higher bid - but I want him to stay as we will need his goals to keep us up.

Like numerous Man City fans I applaud the fact that Sam Allardyce has dug his heels in over Roque Santa Cruz. Basically many City fans just don't want him and think there's much better value for money elsewhere.

I am guessing the bid was around the 15-16 million mark. This wouldnt be enough for me.

Why anyone wants to go to citeh now is beyond me. They only seem to sign Judas players. Surprised Defoe didn't join them.
