So, why did Mike Ashley suddenly decide to spend allegedly £40m on one player and it had to be Joelinton?

Newcastle United have an ‘interesting’ history with agents.



Back in summer 2011, Newcastle signed Demba Ba as a free agent and it was later revealed by HMRC (***See below) that Newcastle had paid a £1.9m fee to Simon Stainrod, who acted on behalf of Newcastle United when signing the player.



Not much was made of it at the time, and in 2019, paying fees to agents is now the norm.

I will leave it up to you to decide if the ‘staggering’ adjective was to describe the fact that Newcastle spent £40million on a player, or the fact that it was Joelinton who that money was spent on.

I have seen media reports claiming all kinds of positivity for NUFC from their close relationship with the ROGON Agency this summer gone, but as it stands, why on earth did Mike Ashley, a notorious penny pincher, decide that this particular player was worth shelling out £40million for and losing his greatest asset in Rafa Benitez…?

Or little leagues for that matter.
