Blackburn closer to agreeing Man City price for Santa Cruz sale

Manchester City are edging closer to a deal for Blackburn Rover striker Roque Santa Cruz.

The Sun says City are unwilling to meet the £20million clause which would trigger his release.

But a fee of £15m with more to follow if he proves a success should be enough to see him rejoin his former boss Mark Hughes.

A senior Rovers source said: "Talks between the clubs are ongoing but we're not a long way apart now.

"If he's going to go we want it done quickly."
