In recent years, the Italian Mino Raiola has profiled himself as the most powerful agent in the world of football and took over the throne from Jorge Mendes. Just look at the list of clients represented by a controversial agent from the Netherlands.
There are Erling Haaland, Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marco Veratti, Gianluigi Donnaruma, Matthias de Light, Stefan de Vrij, Moses Kean, Henrik Mkhitaryan, Kostas Manolas, Alessio Romagnoli, Hirving Lozano, almost all the greatest talents of Dutch football like Boadu, Stengs, Malen ...
Raiola has built an image of an unscrupulous manager that clubs, coaches, and fans don’t like, but players adore him and race to get on his client list. They know that he will get the best and biggest contracts for them.
The focus of the football public is now Raiola's "golden boy" Erling Haaland, who is expected to change clubs in the summer of 2022, and maybe leave Dortmund at the end of this season. "It is obvious that everyone now sees Erling as a new star because what he is doing at his age is amazing at this football level.
He will be one of the best players in the world in the next decade because it is evident that players like Ibrahimovic, Ronaldo, or Messi have reached a stage when we all wonder how much more we will be able to watch them."
"That is why everyone is now looking for a new generation of stars, "Raiola said in an interview with the BBC.
Many are wondering where Haaland will end up, considering that Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City, Manchester United, Chelsea are mentioned as interested parties.
"I think that a maximum of 10 clubs can afford Haaland and offer him a step forward in relation to Dortmund. Four of those 10 clubs are in England. I don't believe that there is a coach or sports director in the world who could say that he is not interested in Haaland.
It's like you're a Formula One team and you're not interested in Lewis Hamilton. " Raiola recently raised a lot of dust by saying that ‘Paul Pogba has finished his at Manchester United and is looking for a new club’.
Many assessed that as a factor of destabilization of the club from Old Trafford in the middle of the season. "I just said my opinion, I didn't want to create any problems. Do you really think that a great champion like Pogba - or Solskjær who has won everything in his career - can destabilize what some Mino Raiola said? Let's not mess around ... But I promise I won't talk about it anymore. "
