Newcastle United knows they can win over fans by signing Joelinton to a contract that will see him finish his prime years on Tyneside.
Newcastle United are still hoping to sign Joelinton to a new contract before he returns from injury in May.

After initial talks to extend his current contract fell through earlier this year, the Brazilian met briefly with Eddie Howe. Joelinton then sustained a thigh injury in the FA Cup win over Sunderland in January, necessitating surgery for a successful recovery.

Joelinton’s initial round of talks with Newcastle broke through as United judged his demands unreasonable. However, the star’s representation said that his role in the team, particularly during the Howe era, was obvious, and his promotion to the Brazil international squad proves he is deserving of being one of the top earners.

The manager stated on Friday: “From a club side we are desperate to keep him – we know his qualities and we know what he brings, but there has not been any major update or change.”

Giving Joelinton a new contract is not just a popular move among fans, but it would also keep talisman Bruno Guimaraes pleased, given the duo’s tight relationship on and off the field. Joelinton’s weekly salary is believed to be £43,000, but the star hopes to be recognized as one of the dressing room’s highest earners.

Co-owner Amanda Staveley and CEO Darren Eales have taken over the fruitless talks formerly led by sporting director Dan Ashworth.

If a deal is not reached, Joelinton’s agency ROGON will almost probably promote the midfield enforcer to the famous list of clubs with which they work closely throughout Europe. The list includes Bundesliga trio Borussia Dortmund, Bayern Munich, and Freiburg in Germany, as well as clubs in the Saudi Pro League that can match Joelinton’s pay.

Joelinton has shown the world that he knows his way around the English top flight circuit, therefore Premier League clubs will be interested.

The 27-year-old still has a year left on his current contract, but he hasn’t caused any problems on the training ground. Joelinton was also waiting for his teammates to congratulate them after the 3-0 annihilation of Wolverhampton Wanderers at St James’ Park last Saturday, as Howe’s side returned to winning ways in the Premier League.
