“Chad Wingard, been a lot of talk around him. What we can tell you tonight though is his status is officially gettable,” Damien Barrett said on Channel Nine’s The Footy Show on Thursday night.
“Multiple Melbourne based clubs have had multiple conversations about procuring possibly from as early as next season.
” There is a awareness in the Melbourne landscape that these clubs are going to have to stump up around the $900,000 and beyond per year for any potential offer they put to Wingard and his management.”
Barrett also stated that Port Adelaide were happy for Wingard to have these talks and deciding what he wants before next year.
“Port Adelaide is aware of him having these talks and they rather him have those talks and work it out himself before coming back to their club next year,” Barrett said
Eddie McGuire asked the question of which teams have the money to secure the services of the 25-year-old.
“Well, St Kilda is the club that has been mentioned at times but whether he would want to go there and you have to ask him the question if he wanted to,” Barrett said.
