Roque Santa Cruz To Be Reunited With Hughes?

The Daily Mail report that City will have to accept less than half the £18m they paid for the Paraguay World Cup striker just over a year ago.

Former City boss Mark Hughes signed Santa Cruz from his old club Blackburn after a lengthy pursuit, but the 28-year-old struggled to make an impression last season and scored only four goals.

With City expected to bring in Inter Milan striker Mario Balotelli, Santa Cruz is surplus to requirements and one of several players expected to leave Eastlands before the end of the month.

Stoke and Fulham are both in the market for a striker but are unlikely to pay more than £8m for Santa Cruz, particularly given his persistent injury problems.
