Reports: City Bid £15 Million For Santa Cruz
Manchester City have made a £15 million bid for Blackburn Rovers striker Roque Santa Cruz, according to various media sources.
Rovers are struggling to raise funds for the transfer market this summer and selling Cruz is the best way by far to inject some spending power into the club.
The Daily Mail is first off the bat with the breaking news. The 27-year-old has still not fully recovered from his knee surgery but that does not appear to have put off City as they look for a tall target man.
City do not believe Santa Cruz is worth the 19 million they bid for him in January however and the bid is reflective of that.
Having said that I would personally be happy as a Rovers fan with £15 million for someone thats wants to go and has been injured for half a season.
