That's fair enough when looking to compare the two deals actually.
(but i think Rooney had more about him at 18 than Barkley does at 24)
Probably yes, but Ross Barkley is an adult. I think this 'agent manipulation' angle is such nonsense. Barkley makes the choices, the agent works for him. At any point, had Barkley wanted to stay, or even get us a bigger fee, he could have. One conversation would've sorted that. He could've even come to Kenwright or anyone at the club and said it, without the agent.
He's treated us like absolute garbage and fuck him for it.
