"I have already told [Blackburn], and they know that before the transfer window closes I would like to continue my career at a bigger, more ambitious team," revealed the 27-year-old."
There's not too much point in speculating on this before we know firmly whether or not Mark Hughes will be the manager for next season. Should he stay, we will surely make yet another move for the Paraguayan target man. I can't really see Frank Rijkaard or Roberto Mancini trying to bring him to City though.
But is he good enough? If we do stick with Hughes, we will need to be quite significantly better next season than we have been this year. And while Roque Santa Cruz is better than Benjani and Caicedo, is he sufficiently better to bring about the improvement we need? Or can we look higher up the market? Thierry Henry? Diego Milito? Luís Fabiano?
