Blackburn Rovers Paraguayan striker, Roque Santa Cruz has made is up his mind and will join Manchester City in January.

The 27-year-old forward has become restless at Ewood Park and is determined to join his former boss, Mark Hughes at Eastlands.

City failed with a £12m bid during the summer, then shortly afterwards the 6’2′ Paraguay international signed a four-year contract with Blackburn Rovers to end the speculation.

Change of heart

Santa Cruz has told people involved in the deal that he wants out of Blackburn at the earliest opportunity; however, Rovers officials are not exactly keen on letting their playmaker make the City move, especially when Hughsey came along four months ago and poached the struggling Premier League Club’s managerial staff and coaches.

City’s executive chairman Garry Cook put it earlier this season…

‘We have already taken their manager and backroom staff off them…’

In the summer of 2007, Blackburn paid Bayern Munich £3.5m for his services; however, the Lancashire Club can expect to make at least a tidy £12m profit from the deal.
