Man Utd to pour energies into deal for Blackburn's Santa Cruz

Manchester United boss Sir Alex Ferguson is eyeing Blackburn Rovers striker Roque Santa Cruz.

The People says Ferguson is dropping his interest for Tottenham's Dimitar Berbatov and now weighing up a bid for Santa Cruz.

Fergie felt Berbatov would be the ideal frontman to replace injury-prone Frenchman Louis Saha and take the strike burden off Wayne Rooney.

Now he will consider other options and is a fan of Santa Cruz, who made a big impression in his first year in the Premier League.
