Besiktas revive push for Man City striker Santa Cruz

Besiktas are reviving interest in want-away Manchester City striker Roque Santa Cruz.

Besiktas are reviving interest in want-away Manchester City striker Roque Santa Cruz.

The Daily Mail says Besiktas are the latest club to rekindle interest in City striker Santa Cruz. City manager Roberto Mancini confirmed last week that the Paraguay international will be allowed to leave in January and Fulham, Getafe and Sevilla have expressed interest.

Leicester are also keen to explore the chance of a loan deal - but that deal is unlikely.

The Turks want Santa Cruz, 29, in January and would hand him the same wages plus a key role in their bid to win a place in next season’s Champions League but Fulham remain strong candidates.
