Mino Raiola to get huge cut from Paul Pogba's potential Man United move

Published 2 Comments

It is quickly becoming one of the most drawn out transfer sagas of this summer but Paul Pogba's potential move from Juventus back to Manchester United is keeping media outlets across the world very busy.

It has been widely known for nearly a week now that if United are going to re-sign the midfielder, who left Old Trafford in 2012, they will be forced to spend roughly £110 million.

And now, details disclosing just how that astronomical fee is being spent have been revealed.

According to The Times, of the reported £110 million that could be changing hands, Pogba's agent Mino Raiola is set to pocket an eye-watering £25.6 million.

Juventus are prepared to let their star man leave in a deal that matches Gareth Bale's £85.4 million record move to Real Madrid, however a 30% sell-on clause Raiola inserted in Pogba's contract explains the price hike.

It is therefore, in the best interests of the Italian-born agent to push through a deal to receive one of the biggest paydays of his career.

This isn't likely to ease any Man United supporters' concerns, who will have already felt uncomfortable spending such a huge amount of money on a player they let slip through their own fingers just four years ago.

After the news that Real Madrid have pulled out of the race, Jose Mourinho will still feel very confident he can land his fourth summer signing with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Eric Bailly already confirmed to join the Portuguese' Old Trafford revolution.


United are becoming very familiar with Raiola, who is also Ibrahimovic and Mkhitaryan's agent and following the success of those deals, it would appear the 48-year-old knows exactly what it takes to persuade his clients to move to Old Trafford.

Pogba made just three senior appearances during his first stint in Manchester but three managers and three seasons without a Premier League title have put Ed Woodward in a desperate position to restore the glory days - even if it means spending a stupid amount on agents.
