There are only three things certain in life: death, taxes and Kenny Lunt being at Gresty Road whilst Dario is in charge. Currently at Hereford United, Lunt is mulling over a contract extension at Edgar Street.
The 30 year old midfielder has been told by the Bulls that he has till the end of the month to decide if he wants to remain but Dario today could have opened up a tempting offer for Lunt.
After 9 years and 430 appearances for the Alex since breaking through from the academy in 1997, describing Lunt as a Dario favourite would be somewhat of an understatement.
A return for Lunt has been on the cards since Dario re-took the reigns back in October and today Dario made his interest in Lunt known. He told the official site, crewealex.net, that he would be stupid to not to consider a move for Kenny, though much depends on the wage budget:
'It is difficult to turn down very good players on a free transfer and Kenny (Lunt) would fall into that category if he was to become available again.
'I am sure Kenny would like to come back here but it doesn't always work out like that.
'I would be stupid not to consider someone as good as him but at the moment the playing budget is very tight and someone like him would have to be a luxury.'
Kenny originally left the club after 9 years service in 2006, signing for Sheffield Wednesday; his time at Wednesday was less than spectacular, making just 33 starts in three years. He did of course also return to Gresty Road twice on loan in 2008, making 17 appearances before Gudjon Thordarson's appointment ended his time once more.
After his release from Wednesday, Lunt signed for Hereford United last year on a one year contract but, after making over 40 appearances this term, he activated a clause that guaranteed him an extra year's extension.
Less than 50 appearances away from breaking Tommy Lowry's record for the all time appearances record at Crewe, it would be hard not to consider Lunt a legend of the club but yet another return to the Alex is unlikely to go down well with Alex fans.
There is also of course the more pressing issue of the defence. Following yesterday's departure of 'keeper Adam Legzdins, the club are currently without a keeper for the opening day of the season with Steve Phillips unlikely to be fit in time for August. It means a new keeper now heads Dario's wish list alongside a left back and a centre back.
