Things must have come to a head for that kind of thing to be said, the usual line is just 'confident he will sign - there's no rush.' I take Beefy's point about this not being a subject we should dwell on as City fans but sadly the facts are pretty clear. There is an obvious stand off and being held to ransom in a way that jeopardises our pay structure is not on. Just get the best deal here you can Raz but if you think you can do better elsewhere and you want to run your contract down instead - better go now. We don't need players who don't want to be here long term.Dubciteh wrote:Pay him the money, he’s nearly out of contract and might not get that salary but when u add in a signing on bonus and all that, it will work out cheaper for us. Easy decision really.
If it is about money that won't happen. He'll run it down to get the fee at his next club included in his wages.
