Santa Cruz joins City from Rovers



Manchester City have made their second big signing this summer by acquiring the services of Paraguayan striker, Roque Santa Cruz from Blackburn Rovers for £17million.

He reunites with his manager Mark Hughes who managed him a season ago at Ewood Park.

Santa Cruz had to prove his knee injury had healed with a lengthy and a stringent medical test after he missed the end of the season due to it.

City had earlier signed Gareth Barry from Aston Villa for £12million.

Hughes had brought the then out of favour hitman from Bayern Munich and he showed his mettle with 23 goals in 43 appearances. Although the last season would be one to forget with just four finishes in the back of the net.

This brings the number of strikers under contract with Manchester City to a mind boggling 10.Jo,Robinho,Craig Bellamy,Bojinov,Caicedo,Ched Evans,Benjani,Sturridge and Vassell being the other 9.To make matters even complicated for them is their inclination towards bringing in Tevez too.

An interesting question which a fellow blogger and tweeter,Craig Decker asked,Will City be able to find room for all of them on the pitch.What do you think?

Yeah and they need to sell players too now.Sturridge,Benjani,Vassell would most probably not be part of their campaign cum August.
