FFS, you're just arguing about sematics.

He made a suggestion speculating why some players have been out for ages, not stating it as fact.  It's obviously wrong, but can't people just leave it at that?

Galatasaray to meet Aston Villa over Trezeguet transfer

https://www.sporx.com/futbol/ekstra/galatasarayda-trezeguet-operasyonuSXGLQ49744SXQ?sira=2

Fatih Terim, once again put Mahmoud Trezeguet on the agenda

A meeting will be held with the English club this week on the rental of the Egyptian star who has been out of the squad for weeks at his club Aston Villa.


Aston Villa squad man tempted by offer as meeting scheduled for exit

https://www.kingfut.com/2021/01/13/galatasaray-meet-aston-villa-trezeguet/

Galatasaray boss Fatih Terim is a long-term admirer of the player and even tried to sign him before his move to Villa. Now, he could finally get the chance to work with him.

The 26-year-old would apparently be open to the move, because it would allow him to reunite with Mbaye Diagne, with whom he starred for Kasimpasa. He also knows he would get more regular game-time than at Villa.

Should he stay or should he go..........no goals this season but his work rate is 10 out of 10

I say upgrade at the end of the season

Keep unless and until we have signed someone better (not a knock on Trez - I like him a lot).

Buy the new player, embed them in the first team and then if the person they replaced isn't happy/needed then that's the time to let them go, same as we've done with Matty Cash coming in over Freddie and AEH. We certainly have no need to be selling players before buying replacements.

As for 'out of the squad for weeks' and 'squad player', well yes, since he's been injured. He played most matches before that. Yet more outstanding journalism.

Unless he's desperate to leave, I can't think of any reason why we would want anybody to ever "rent" him from us.

If they want to make us a decent offer in the summer then he'd go with my thanks while we bring in a superior replacement. Otherwise he's extremely useful to have around the place.

How much would it take to let him go?

Think we paid around £9m.

Start the bidding at £15m? He's certainly been good enough for us that his value has gone up, not down.

And his attitude is superb. They have all embraced being a part of something bigger; as a first team regular or squad player trying to get in and take one of those spots.

I like him. Keep him, please. At least until we sign someone else or Barry is good enough for regular appearances.

The problem is if Trezeguet walks into Smith office and ask if he is the first choice on the right what does Smith say to him?

When everyone is fit its Jack on the left and 3 for the right side,

For me, he is the first choice in away games and Bertrand Traoré would be the first choice at home when we need to break down defences, with El Ghazi coming on in the 70 minutes.

Is that more of a problem in this case than any other player at Villa or at any other club?

A very simple answer I would think. "You've been injured so I couldn't pick you. Win the shirt back from El Goalzi."

Which is exactly what he did by working his balls off last time he wasn't first choice so I doubt his attitude would be in question.

I'm not sure how having more than one good player for each position is a problem to be honest, especially since we've had years not even having one good player for each position.

It would be crazy to sell him right now.  I still think he lacks a bit of quality, but he was getting better and better and certainly made a big contribution before his injury.  I suspect he'll be with us next season.

Brentford No 1 David Raya, Tom Heaton and Sergio Romero among the goalkeepers Arsenal could sign as back-up

https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-9138169/The-goalkeepers-Arsenal-sign-Alex-Runarssons-dreadful-start-club.html

Just paper talk but I would let him go for £5 to 7 million

I can't see him wanting to go anywhere as back-up.
