Mino Raiola was born on November 4, 1967, in Nocera Inferiore, Italy. He later entered sports and became one of the sport’s most well-known and divisive figures. He died today, April 30, 2022, in Milan.
He was named the top agent of the year in 2016 and 2020, and he was dubbed the “King of the Football Market” at the time. Dennis Bergkamp, a Dutchman, was the first player he represented, and he was signed by Inter Milan. Raiola reportedly acquired 721 million euros in agreements for his clients in 2020, according to Forbes magazine. Erling Haaland (150 million euros) was his most expensive player, whom he was attempting to sign with Barcelona, Manchester City, or Real Madrid.
Mino Raiola Was The Best Sports Agent
Raiola was brought to the San Raffaele hospital in Milan for an undefined protracted illness, and his physicians disputed his death last Thursday, despite the fact that he was in a critical state. The agent’s death was verified by his family today. Mario Balotelli, a former Liverpool striker, paid a touching tribute to his ‘second father,’ Mino Raiola, who died suddenly on Saturday at the age of 54.
The Italian-Dutch agent, whose high-profile clients included Paul Pogba, Erling Haaland, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic, was one of the most well-known in international football. On Thursday, the agent was mistakenly declared deceased. Raiola’s family paid tribute to their fallen family member on Saturday, confirming his death following a recent fight with lung disease. Famous footballers have paid tribute to Balotelli, with Balotelli being the most recent.
