Cardiff City's Wembley bound stars are all well and truly in the shop window as Peter Ridsdale confirms, for the umpteenth time, that every player has his price.
Cardiff find themselves with a young and talented squad, surely just one or two players away from being serious promotion candidates in the Championship. However, if they are serious about securing Premiership football, they would surely need to hang onto their brightest young prospects.
Aaron Ramsey and Joe Ledley are two of the most talked about players outside the Premiership and the Welsh youngsters both have superb potential. However, both are highly visible to prospective clubs and the Cup run will only have enhanced that.
Now Peter Ridsdale has re-iterated that every player has their price. He told the Western Mail:
"Every scout under the sun is watching Cardiff at the moment and every player has a value."
"I expect people to be knocking on my door, but they can knock as much as they like. Certain players have a value and that is that."
"Every player is up for sale, that has alway been the case. What has changed is that the price has just got bigger - it would take a massive cheque to prize certain players away."
Selling players for good prices is acceptable and good business sense. However, it seems clear that monies raised will not go back into team strengthening indicating that there is a financial shortfall at the club and we must sell players to meet that gap.
This timely statement by Ridsdale could well be intended to attract bids in our players, and tantamount to hanging big 'for sale' placards round their necks. Only time will tell, but Cardiff City is supposedly building for a bright future - it just doesn't seem that way very often.
