Rovers boss Sam Allarsyce thinks that for city to get their hands on striker Santa Cruz they must pay over the odds and bid a very large amount of money for Rovers to deal.
Big Sam was speaking to Sky Sports this morning, 'I can't second guess what Manchester City are going to do,'
'Whatever happens between now and next week, as time goes on in this usual transfer window of mayhem, we will wait and see.
'You never say never about anything because you never know what is around the corner when January is on the boil.
'At the end there is always going to be a price, but there is no price we are going to put on Roque's head.
'It is down to Man City to make the offer and blow us out of the water.
'Obviously, we simply want him to play for us and help us stay in the Premier League, which is the most important thing for me and this club.
'The ball is always in Manchester City's court not ours. At the moment we are looking forward to getting him fit and playing for Blackburn Rovers.'
'I am more than hopeful because he is our player, he is contracted to us, we decide where and when he leaves the football club,'
'He has a contract with Blackburn Rovers that he only signed this season.'
We hold all the cards in this pursuit. Roque despite saying he wouldn't mind leaving has just signed a fresh contract, he has stated he loves playing here and we have no real need to sell.
Which means we either end up with a shed load of cash or a talented striker.
Advantage - Rovers.
