16 Jan Jonathan Barnett named top agent as Stellar leads the way
Stellar Group chairman Jonathan Barnett has been named as Britain’s top soccer agent and the second most powerful agent in the world.
A report on football’s leading intermediaries praised Jonathan and Stellar Group for masterminding a host of landmark deals and transfers, adding that “behind every great player is a great agent getting the best deal for his clients”.
The report mentioned recent high-profile negotiations on behalf of clients such as Gareth Bale and Luke Shaw, adding that Stellar has a reputation for getting the best results and a proven record in the boardroom.
Responding to the news, Jonathan said: “Stellar Group’s success is based on our world-wide network of intermediaries, scouts and support staff, the relationships we build with our clients and our determination to get them the best deals their talent and hard work deserve.
“But while the praise is nice to have, the report is probably already a little out of date. When you look at the clients we represent now as well as those on the cusp of becoming star names in football and other major sports, you can see we are well on course to being the world’s number one.”
