FIFA has announced that global superstar football agent Mino Raiola is to serve a worldwide ban for 3 months, which places a number of potential high-profile transfers in jeopardy.
Raiola is well known in the soccer business industry for his brokering ability and also for his short temperament. The details of the ban is still unknown as FIFA is yet to give any follow-up statements.
Mino Raiola’s star studded clientele include:
Paul Pogba -MAN UTD
Matthijs de Ligt – AJAX
Henrikh Mkhitaryan – ARSENAL
Marco Verratti – PSG
Zlatan Ibrahimovic – LA GALAXY
Sergio Romero – MAN UTD
Gianluigi Donnarumma – AC MILAN
Kostas Manolas – ROMA
Blaise Matuidi – JUVENTUS
Mario Balotelli – MARSEILLE
Justin Kluivert – ROMA
The 51 year old agent , as listed above, represents Matthijs De Ligt , who is hot property right now. Every European top club have been keeping tabs on him and want him in their roster. The dutchman is in advanced talks with Barcelona as per reports but the deal seems to have been delayed , firstly due to Raiola’s demands of an 20% agent fee commission which is unusual as agent fee commission’s are 5 to 10% usually.
