Wouldn't surprise me.

He knows Monk, Blues will pay him more.

Can accept him going back to Spain for his family, but losing him to another Championship side will just show that we have 0 ambition.

Agree 100%

Remember we offered Gary monk a “good” contract to stay. I expect the same statement about Pablo

Hitc rarely get anything right, another piece of lazy journalism by them. People putting 2 and 2 together and getting whatever answer they want.
Hernandez contract ending, Monk bought him here , Monk now at Brum, wild guesses.

Expect Jansson, Saiz & Lassoga to go too !

We'll be left with a League One squad next season

Lassoga was never going to be here next season, not at £40k per week anyway.
Tbh if we are to progress we need better than him anyway.

Going to be 33/34 next season, He's not in our long term plans, can't be. I don't think I'll be losing any sleep especially if we keep Saiz and I think we will

I agree about HITC, but just google Pablo Hernandez there are dozens of the same story

Considering O'Shame and Cooper have already signed new deals because tons of teams would have been chasing them . . . Surprised its taken this long with Pablo.

32 33 34 dont care, most talented player we have imo. Not a popular opinion i know.

Or we have overstretched our budget giving crap players new contracts . . . .Pablo has little resale value and is a high earner so lets let him go.

Which seems mainly fans fears, probably the same fans who were certain Pablo Bartley, Wood and Green were going to Go to Boro with Monk in the summer.
Not saying it won't happen but I would think Brum need to know what division they're going to be in before they think about who they are signing next season.
This will most likely be Pablo's last decent contract, so I'd imagine he'll be looking for the best financial deal for himself. Whether that will be here is debatable.

The trouble is that there are lots of similar 'sports news agencies' and even papers that are desperate to fill column inches or get people to click on their stories so they all just recirculate the same story regardless of if there is any truth in it.

I take your point about age, it has to be a factor in deciding what length of contract he is offered.

But, in my humble opinion, whether Saiz stays or not, we still need Pablo. Technically, we have very few if any players on he's level. We need more like Pablo and Saiz, not less !

Absolutely Gurj

I can see a repeat of previous summer's with our three class players gone & left with all the plebs on four your contracts no other club would touch with a barge pole

Such a shame we were so close last season, now we are a million miles away from a decent team & any future success

Absolutely

It may well be true, but the same story appearing on various websites means nothing in itself. It's not like the pre-internet days where the likelihood of a story being true increased if a number of newspapers carried the story. In those days the papers had their sources and published once a day at the same time.

With the proliferation of news and sports sites on the web in a 24/7 news cycle, they pick stories up off one another and run with with on their own site as well.
We're going up like there is no gravity!

Pablo at some point wants to return to Spain and play for the team he is part owner of so I doubt that contract length would be a real issue as I am sure if he wanted to stay and we were prepared to give him a decent contract he would sign whether it was a 1 year or 2 year deal. Would love to see him stay as the more players you have with footballing brains then the easier it is to play good football. With Saiz, Pablo and Alioski playing well we have a real attacking threat and they appear to have a decent understanding of each other's game.

Personally dont think Alioski is anywhere near the class of the two Spaniards - hes been fortunate to get so much game time in my opinion.

Depends on formation and tactics next season but I’d like to believe we’d have a better option in the team than Pablo, injured too easy stand out because those around him are so poor
