Roque Santa Cruz has stunned Blackburn Rovers fans by admitting he fancies a move to Mark Hughes' Manchester City.

Speaking on Paraguayan radio station Primero de Marzo, the striker said: "Manchester City is a team that has a very important financial support that is getting prepared for winning the title.

"I am very happy at Blackburn but I like the idea of playing for a team that will be fighting for important objectives.

"I will keep on doing what I do at Blackburn but if the coach of Manchester City is interested in me I would like to join Robinho in that team. He is a wonderful player and I would like to play next to him."
