His value drops either way. And we don’t have reserves since about 2005. The PFA will get involved if he trains alone for to long, and the club won’t want him near the U23s.
Maybe a loan until the end of the season
Tony is an incredibly skilled negotiator.
He has turned these situations around many times before. I doubt there will be any need to exact any sort of punishment.
Tony will just make it clear that he will accept the downside of this situation before allowing himself to be forced to weaken his and the club's positon.
Trossard isn't strengthening his hand by his actions.
Sure he might get some extra cash if he sits it out for 17 months, but I would expect that period would do far more damage to his career and earnings than it will to Tony's.
