" BALE AGENT SAYS CARDIFF DEAL COMPLICATED "

Head of Sport Paul Abbandonato spoke to Bale's agent Jonathan Barnett this morning. The feedback is decision 'within next few days' but still mulling over options. Barnett has previously told us 'money will not be a factor' in this decision. Very polite and indeed apologetic in not being able to offer more definitive guidance at this stage, but looks like the final pros and cons are all being weighed up

The Cardiff deal, we're told, is 'highly complicated. It's not the usual straight salary etc, so that will be forming part of the negotiations, last-minute thinking'.

Wonder if shares in the club are involved as part of wages and bonuses.

Doubt if he’s going to say ‘All going well, expect to sign tomorrow’. It could be dotting i s and crossing Ts. Who knows though he

I doubt a three month contract to World Cup is 'complicated' so it must mean if GB signs it is a long-term deal

Whatever it takes to get Bale to Cardiff, just do it. This is a once in a lifetime deal that could see Cardiff shoot up the ladder in terms of reputation in Wales. Cardiff City is his home and should come home for his family and for this club. The club he loves.

Sam, respect to you.

That is the most common sense post on this whole saga.

Succinct, real and the bottom line.

Got to beare in mind we have to pay wages it's part of the rules (Barca couldn't accept messi offer of playing for free) so to say its anyones fault is very disingenuous .....

I agree Monty boy but we’ve brought it on ourselves.

The whole Bale thing on here has been embarrassing and pathetic.

In what way?

I would challenge anyone to suggest a different set of fans, with nothing but passion for their club, to act any differently.

The situation has been hyped to high heaven by the media, the fans, the lack of denial by the player, statements from agent and people in the know. In fact the only silence is from the club

With all that in mind, I'm surprised it's not worse on here. Everyone has the club at heart whether they are a glass half full or half empty sort of fan.

Particularly agree with your last few lines Wayne. I don’t agree with everything posted but like all clubs, we are fans with opinions and opinions will always differ
