Mino Raiola is a well-travelled figure in the football world.

Just this summer, he brought players from Germany, Italy and France to England.

The arrivals of Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic to Manchester United ensured Raiola’s status as a super agent. He has clients in all of the major leagues and, clearly, enjoys making money from them.

Raiola is probably a good person to listen to if you’re interested in learning about the game’s biggest stars given the number of acquaintances he has.

And he reckons Juventus, who sold Pogba to United, possess a gem by the name of Moise Kean.

The 16-year-old has been a sensation at all age levels. He scored 21 goals in 10 matches at Giovanissimi level, 14 in 15 games for the Allievi Nazionali, 24 in 25 U17 appearances and five in five matches for the Primavera squad.

Goals come easily to the teenage striker, then.

Scary determination

“Kean is the name to watch in 2017, and I’m not just saying that because I’m his agent,” Raiola told Corriere dello Sport, per Football Italia.

“He is only 16 years old, but has this determination within him that is just scary. He can become a big star at Juventus.”

In a bid to ensure Kean doesn’t leave Turin, Juventus are set to sign him to his first professional contract lasting three years.

Raiola: Juventus are unique

Raiola has become familiar with Juventus over recent seasons and is in awe of the way in which Italy’s dominant side is managed.

“Italy is a nation of naysayers, nobody ever comes out in your favour, even if in Italian football Juve have done so much and are light years ahead of the rest,” he added. “They are a unique phenomenon in Italy.

“This is the best-organised club and it’s no coincidence that for five years they’ve dominated Serie A. The Bianconeri management is the best, starting from Andrea Agnelli, as I’ve never heard the President say a word out of place or invade someone else’s territory.

“At Juve they all know what they have to do and they do it well.”
