Bellers Future Hangs In the Balance

Bellers Future Hangs In the Balance



Craig Bellamy is due to return back from holiday shortly and will be hoping to commence pre season training somewhere...

...and that somewhere could yet be at Manchester City's Carrington training complex.

The Welsh firebrand who turns 32 years old next month has ended his predominantly City funded season long loan with hometown club Cardiff and remains very much a Citizen under contract.

Bellers joined City from West Ham United in January 2009 for a fee of £14 million making 41 League and Cup starts and scoring 15 goals. There are many Blues who still believe that the speedster could still do a job for City in an imminent Champions League committed season, but the players tendency to be outspoken saw him shipped out by Roberto Mancini in advance of City's ultimately successful last campaign.

New Cardiff boss Malky Mackay has already praised the player and the Bluebirds hierarchy have confirmed that they will approach City again next month over Bellamy's services. However, this time around City will surely demand a transfer fee.

The question is how much could City hope to recoup from Mark Hughes' hotly pursued outlay?

Wouldn't be surprised to see the club release him and him going back to Cardiff on a free. They can't afford a fee AND wages for him, but you can bet Mancini won't want him around the place. I'll thank him for what he did for us, but at 32 he's nott got much left in the tank, and he doesn't get on with the manager, so see ya!

I loved watching Bellers in full flow but as we know he's injury prone and like all of us, the years are catching up with the Welshman. In other words the riggers of Premier and Champions League football would in my opinion be too much. Best he goes now I think.

Football is a business, we deserve a fee for him after last seasons charity. Cardiff can borrow the money just like any other club and pay him Championship wages.

Because Mancini views him as a destabilizing presence in the team and given his past and record, he probably has a point. Mancini is building a steely mentality and strong team spirit (despite what the United-loving media would have you believe), so players like Bellamy and Adebayor are unwanted.

Pity though. The Green and Golders were terrified of him and there were games last season where we would have won with him on the field
