The List Of World-Class Players Who Have Mino Raiola As Their Agent
Mino Raiola represents some of the best footballers in the world including Paul Pogba, Erling Haaland and Gianluigi Donnarumma.
Raiola is often linked to Manchester United midfielder Pogba and is a much maligned figure at Old Trafford.
But his ability as a football agent is often overlooked and he's in charge of multiple players.
Two that immediately stand out are starlets Haaland as well as Dutch defender Matthijs de Ligt.
Haaland recently completed a move to Borussia Dortmund and has scored eight goals in five games.
Meanwhile, de Ligt joined Juventus from Dutch giants in the summer and is one of the world's highest rated defenders.
Check out the key list of players managed by the Italian agent per Transfermarkt below:
Paul Pogba - Manchester United
Matthijs de Ligt - Juventus

Raiola took a swipe at United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer before Monday night's game against Chelsea.
Solskjaer had responded to reports that Pogba could be on his way out of Old Trafford stating, "Paul is our player and not Mino's".
Raiola then fired back on Instagram and criticised the Norwegian.
"Paul is not mine and for sure not Solskjaer's property, Paul is Paul Pogba's," he stated per BBC.
"Before Solskjaer makes comments about things I say he should inform himself better about the content of what has been said.
"Until now I was maybe too nice to him. Solskjaer should just remember things that he said in the summer to Paul.
"I think Solskjaer may be frustrated for different reasons and is now mixing up some issues. I think that Solskjaer has other things to worry about."
Following United's 2-0 win , Solskjaer fired back and stated:
"I don't have to comment through the media on Mino and what he says. I can probably speak to him myself, so..."
But when asked if he would speak to Raiola directly, the 46-year-old admitted he 'probably wouldn't.'
Do you think Paul Pogba will leave Manchester United this summer?
