Rovers Set Deadline For Roque Move
Blackburn have decided to sort the future of 'underhanded' striker Roque Santa Cruz by the end of this month - to enable Rovers to start the bulk of their summer transfer business.
Manchester 'We can buy anyone' City, Aston Villa, Tottenham 'We are linked with everyone' Hotspur and Real Madrid have all been linked with Le Sulk 2009 and Rovers want him either sold or content to stay by the end of June.
Chairman John Williams, speaking to BBC Radio Lancashire said - 'Sam understands the financial position and a lot depends on whether Roque goes.
'It's not just in terms of the cash it will generate but also in finding a replacement for him.
'We've not got a bottomless pot of money and I think numbers will have to be reduced.'
I believe the best for everyone is if Roque slings his hook and we get a big wad of cash from him as that will help the financial side of things at the club and allow Sam to bring in more fresh blood.
If we can get £15 million or (even better) start a bidding war involving Man City off for him then I say sell and get in Mark Janko from Salzburg for £7 million, a central midfielder and a right winger (more than likely form abroad). We may even have some money left over from this as well.
That will help the wages problem.
