Blackburn claim £18m release clause in striker’s contract is just paper talk: Would Manchester City pay his fee?

Manchester City knew Blackburn striker Roque Santa Cruz was worth a lot to Blackburn; but did they really believe he was worth THIS much?

Blackburn have rejected claims Manchester City target Roque Santa Cruz has an £18m release clause in his contract. (The Sun)

£18m is a pretty steep price to pay, even for a striker of Santa Cruz’s caliber. Whilst many would balk at that price right now in this financial market, most would have to believe Man City would be more than willing to spend that type of money with their new deep pockets fronting the funds.

Do Man City supporters want Roque at their club? Do you think he’d be able to pair with Robinho?
