Santa Cruz remains keen on Italy

07 September 2010 12:15
Manchester City striker Roque Santa Cruz is still hopeful of making a move to Serie A in the not-too-distant future, having recently seen a move to Lazio fall through. The 29-year-old Paraguay international faces an uncertain future with the Citizens and has set his sights on a switch to Rome, perhaps as early as the January transfer window. He told the Corriere dello Sport: "I had hoped to arrive in Rome, that was my dream. Unfortunately, the deal fell through. "There has been a lot of talk of my arrival to Italy and perhaps next time it will materialise. "We will see what happens in the next few months. I don't like to look too far away and I don't know what Lazio's intentions are. "I have received many offers, but I had hoped to play in Rome. "I have happy in England, but Italian football fascinates me and I would love to have an experience in Serie A."
