Santa Cruz set to leave Blackburn Rovers

Blackburn Rovers striker Roque Santa Cruz has spoken again about his desire to join a bigger club at the end of the season.

The Paraguay striker has failed to match the 19 league goals that he scored last year during his first season in the Premier League but is still wanted by a number of other clubs.

According to the Guardian, Santa Cruz has a £20m buyout clause in his current contract with big spenders Manchester City reported to be willing to stump up the cash.

"I would not mind moving on, if it was a big team and if the conditions were right," the striker told the Guardian. "People are interested in what is going to happen to players next season. Rumours come from somewhere, but there is nothing official."
