Rovers To Stick To Their Guns!!!
Blackburn Rovers striker Roque Santa Cruz has made it clear that he wants away from Ewood Park but John Williams is understood to be prepared to stick to his guns on his valuation.
The Rovers chairman was holding out for £20 million for the Paraguayan in January's transfer window and not even Manchester City would meet this amount at the time. Injuries and loss of form has hindered Santa Cruz's season but Williams isn't prepared to let the striker leave in a bargain deal (as some reports have claimed) and nor will he allow him to go to anyone on a cheaper money plus player deal (also something that plenty are understood to be trying to tempt Rovers with.)
Newspaper reports today are again giving out the impression that Williams isn't going to back down in his valuation for the Paraguayan International, even if this means Rovers miss out on the transfer funds that could be generated from selling him. Personally I don't think that JW is going to be that short-sighted as he knows that Santa Cruz is unhappy and we'll not benefit from keeping an unhappy player on board and this isn't going to do much to help team morale either. We will rightly hold out for as much as we can get for Santa but unless Man City come in for RSC again I don't think we'll be able to get anywhere near to £20 million for him will we?!?!
One thing that I do know I'm fed up with is this whole RSC situation (and have been for a LONG time) so the sooner we end this drama the better!!!
