No, I am not breaking out into operatic song!
Plenty has been said by myself, and others, about Marko Futacs recently. His contract has now officially expired, and this new one offered to him has not been signed nor has another club come in for him.
Enough is enough now for the Hungarian though, if he wants to stay he should sign the deal on offer, if not he should tell us that is his intention and go!
Go where though appears to be the question as are clubs really banging the door down for him?
Quite clearly we cannot offer him more and this has been spelt out in no uncertain terms to him by Appy, more than once.
I would like him to leave now though if I were honest as we are entering a phase where we need/want players to play for us that want to be here to play for us for that reason.
The longer Futacs takes to decide on a new contract the more it seems that his decision is financially motivated. So he is wanting more money and/or is waiting for someone else to come in and offer him that!
The problem that we may well have is that 'if' we withdraw our contract offer perhaps the 'compensation' that we would get from his would be next club (due to him being under-23 and us indicating a willingness to keep him having offered a new contract) would then not come?
All in all I reckon that Appy is now planning on him not being around next season and I would say that is the right way to plan!
We are no longer paying him (not that we probably were anyway!) but so long as the contract offer is not withdrawn then I would guess that compensation would come to us from another club that takes him on, if there is another waiting for him...
