He's not good enough for United... forgive me for saying this but he's not really good enough for Citeh with their 'ambition'! I think he just had a good season, like Benni McCarthy had... he was linked with Chelsea you may recall!
Blackburn striker Roque Santa Cruz wants a move to Manchester City in January. Rovers turned down a Â£12m bid from City in the summer, but are prepared to up their offer to Â£15m, with defender Nedum Onuoha thrown in. (Daily Mail)
Santa Cruz drops Blackburn bombshell after revealing desire to leave for a bigger club
Roque Santa Cruz has told Blackburn Rovers he wants the chance to move to a bigger club.
The Â£20million-rated striker dropped a bombshell on the eve of Sam Allardyce's first game in charge by opening the door for a January move.
The Paraguay international said: â€˜I don't want to miss the chance of playing with a big side.
'If a bigger club came in for me then I would like to take that opportunity.'
Santa Cruz will be a target for Manchester City and Mark Hughes â€” the manager who took him to Ewood Park for Â£3.5m and revived a career that was flagging at Bayern Munich â€” and Aston Villa are also certain to renew the interest they showed in the summer.
Santa Cruz told BBC's 5 Live: â€˜I am happy at Blackburn but also I want to keep improving my football.
'My contract with Blackburn is clear but I am looking again to play in a big side that is in Europe and trying to win their league.
whats your obession with aguero? we dont need him! hes a good player and evrything but whats the point whens hes the carven copy of rooney and tevez its not football manager where you can lump all 3 of rooney tevez and aguero together yano? it wouldnt work!
dont think santa cruz is what were looking for hes a one season wonder as some used the example of benni mccarthy if he was any bit deacent dont think bayern woulda let him go on the cheap!
And here I was, after hearing Roque's words, which were to the effect of: "I want to play for Blackburn, and no one else, they gave me my chance after Bayern and I feel as if I owe them." Not Mark Hughes mind you, that he owes...Blackburn. To see someone nowadays actually show that kind of respect and commitment to their club warmed my heart.
So, what am I to think now? Maybe people like Giggsy and Scholes and Neville really are a dying breed
That was my post a few months ago on another forum, when the first "I want to play for MASSIVE City" rumors came about.
