Former Newcastle United and Rafael Benitez target Alassane Plea is being tracked by Barcelona, proving that Mike Ashley might have made a mistake on this one.

With Rafael Benitez not getting backed as he would have hoped as manager, he decided to move on from the club, with Steve Bruce becoming his replacement.

Things are going okay at the moment, but Mike Ashley may be kicking himself when he sees Plea flourishing like he is.

With Joelinton only scoring one league goal all season while leading the line, Mike Ashley may well now be regretting the fact they spent twice as much on the Brazillian.

In 2018, Benitez admitted that the Frenchman was one of his main targets after he managed to score 21 times and assist seven for the whole of the 17/18 season while he was at Nice.

German outlet Bild claim that Barcelona made a £46m offer for the forward, which not only proves what standard the player is, but also suggests that Newcastle could have made a big profit on the player after he joined.

In his first season for the club, he managed to score 15 goals and assist four.
