Edit: First announced dead by the Italian press, Mino Raiola would still be alive according to his relatives, but in critical condition.
Along with Jorge Mendes, he is one of the most influential agents in the world of football. Representing many great players, such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba, Erling Haaland or Mario Balotelli, Mino Raiola is very ill according to his relatives.
Suffering for several months, the Italian, who was initially announced dead on Thursday by the transalpine press, had been operated on in January due to a lung disease and was then placed in intensive care. “I am outraged by the phone calls from pseudo-journalists speculating on the life of a man who is fighting to survive,” commented Dr. Alberto Zangrillo from San Raffaele Hospital in Milan to the Italian agency Ansa.
A message was also posted on Mino Raiola’s official account: “Current state of health for those wondering: pissed off. This is the second time in four months that they have killed me. I also seem capable of resurrecting. »
Lately, Raiola was trying to manage the future of Paul Pogba, who wanted to leave Manchester United. He had several drop points in mind, including PSG. “We have to speak clearly: Paul at Manchester United is unhappy, he can no longer express himself as he would like and as expected of him. He must change teams, change air, ”assured the influential agent.
