Mino Raiola: Concerns for Pogba’s and Haaland’s Agent’s Health

Mino Raiola, the football super-agent who represents Paul Pogba, Erling Haaland, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, is reportedly ‘critically unwell’ in a Milan hospital, according to Skysports.

Raiola was hospitalised on Thursday and widespread reports in Italy claimed he had died, but Alberto Zangrillo, head of the Intensive Care Unit at San Raffaele Hospital, told Italian news agency ANSA, “I am outraged by phone calls from so-called journalists speculating on the life of a man who is fighting.”

The Italian, who also represents Gianluigi Donnarumma, Marco Verratti, and Matthijs de Ligt, has been involved in some of the most high-profile moves in recent years, including Pogba’s £93 million return to Manchester United in 2016.

Furthermore, his agency notified AFP on Thursday that rumours that football “super agent” Mino Raiola had died were “false news,” after Italian media extensively reported that he had died at the age of 54.

“Mino is not dead, the stories are fake news,” Raiola’s agency told AFP when asked if the reports were accurate. Raiola’s whereabouts and whether he was sick were kept a secret by the agency.

Raiola is one of the sport’s largest agents and most contentious figures, with clients including World Cup winner Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, and one of the sport’s hottest new properties, Borussia Dortmund striker Erling Braut Haaland.

He’s been accused of raising player salaries to unsustainable levels and is entangled in a dispute over transfer commissions.

Raiola earned 27 million euros ($28.3 million) on the sale of France star Paul Pogba from Juventus to Manchester United in the summer of 2016, according to former Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta.

Raiola allegedly earned 49 million euros from three parties in the then-world-record 105 million-euro transfer, according to Football Leaks.
