Bayern Munich striker Roque Santa Cruz sent a 'come and get me' message to Manchester City and Blackburn last night.

He has pledged to quit Bayern Munich, who value him at £4.5 m.

Santa Cruz, also in talks with Portuguese side Porto and Turkish giants Galatasaray, said: "I hope I can get a move this week."

His agents have already spoken to Blackburn, while City have him on their massive short-list. The move was turned up to boiling point when he said: "It is hard to imagine staying longer at Bayern."
