A formal bid for our top scorer is expected soon. With him falling out of favour with the national coach (again), the chance of him missing January and February through the African Nations Cup has evaporated..... Leaving his former boss to step in. (The following is taken from tribalfootball.com)
'Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is planning a bid for Blackburn Rovers striker Benni McCarthy. The Lancashire Evening Telegraph says sources in London suggest that, now a deal for Claudio Pizarro is wrapped up, the 2007 FA Cup and Carling Cup winners will focus their attention on taking McCarthy to Stamford Bridge.
However, any approach for the free-scoring 29-year-old, who landed a Champions League winners medal under Mourinho at his previous club Porto, will not go down well with Mark Hughes.
Hughes is adamant that his star striker is staying at Ewood Park, and has already made it clear that he is under no pressure to sell McCarthy, plus there are no clauses in the layer's contract that could force Rovers into selling if a certain offer was tabled.'
Now I for one can't see us let him leave without either us recieving a large offer and Hughes is happy that it will beneift us in the long run.
McCarthy can't sulk his way to a transfer... and if the right offer doesn't come in he will be wearing blue and white again next season. Hughes is playing this fiasco absolutely spot on and he knows that whatever happens... His team will be mutual benefactors.
