Probably not as much as a transfer but surely agents get a fair wedge for contract renewals don't they? Also, if Ross had ever indicated a willingness to stay I'm sure he'd still be here.
most footballers just let their agents get on with it don't they?
his agent won't have had to work too hard to get in his ear though. it's not as if his manager called him out in public at all, or dragged him off at half time and slated him afterwards, or he got dropped from the England squad because he wasn't being played at Everton by his manager. And it's not like the manager at the time had form for being an absolute twat to players he didn't like, was it? and it's defo not like the club's major shareholder (not fucking majority, he's made fucking sure of that, Liverpool fucking Echo) went on live TV and slagged him off is it?
making Barkley want to leave Everton will be his agent's easiest job ever thanks to Koeman and Moshiri
