Manchester City could be about to pull of another sensational transfer deadline day deal. It has been reported this evening that the world's richest club are on the brink of agreeing a deal with Blackburn for striker Roque Santa Cruz, who has been linked with a move to Eastlands for several weeks.
Blackburn have rejected several bids for the Paraguayan international in recent weeks, with the last bid thought to be around the £19 million mark. Rovers boss Sam Allardyce has always maintained his desire to keep Santa Cruz at Ewood Park, however it is understood if City make a bid of £25 million for the player it will be accepted.
City boss Mark Hughes has already worked with Santa Cruz during his time at Blackburn and the former Wales manager is desperate to re-ignite their relationship at the City of Manchester stadium. Wouldn't this just be incredible. This move looked dead in the water just an hour ago, however it's with City you can never rule anything out.
