Upon returning from holiday, Hulse reported to Alex's Reaseheath training ground for pre-season training and told Gradi that a move to Ninian Park did not appeal to him.
The Gresty Road boss though says that he fears the forward may miss out on a move altogether as he clings to the hope of signing for a Premiership club.
"I have spoken with Rob (Hulse) this morning (Tuesday) and he has told me that he doesn't want to speak to Cardiff," Gradi told the club's official website.
"Personally I think it is best for him to go, and from our point of view we would like to get the money and get cracking with our other plans.
"But it's a difficult situation. I think he wants to play in the Premier League but I am not sure he'll get the move he wants at this time.
"As things stand I need to sell him. I am having to plan our pre-season without him as we cannot base things around Rob if he's leaving us."
