We put out a poll to gauge what fans thought of maybe selling Jonjo Shelvey to West Ham for £20M in the summer.
Hammers’ manager Manuel Pellegrini is keen to take Jonjo back home for a reported £20M.
And since the emergence of Sean Longstaff as a top young attacking midfielder, it could be a good time to sell.
Jonjo is also the highest wage-earner at around £70M/week, and that would ease the wage bill and let Rafa bring in some good players at good wages.
Jonjo Shelvey – should Newcastle sell him this summer?
The other side of the argument is that Shelvey is one of our most creative players – something we have lacked at Newcastle.
And he seems to have done an excellent job in quelling some of his errant behavior on the pitch – to his credit.
With those kinds of arguments in mind three in five fans think we should sell the 27-year-old for £20M.
Rafa could then use that money to bring in some other good players.
Like another top striker and finally, nail down Salomon Rondon to stay at the club for the next few years.
But it will be entirely up to Rafa what happens – as it should be – always assuming he stays on board past June.
What do you think?
