Agent Mino Raiola ‘will earn £24m from Paul Pogba transfer’

Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta has claimed Mino Raiola stands to make €27m (£24 million) following Paul Pogba’s world record move to Manchester United.

The midfielder returned to Old Trafford for a fee of £89m this summer, but there has been confusion about his agent’s commission.

“He [Pogba] came from United for a price of around €1.5m,” Marotta explained to shareholders.

“After four years with us he decided to return to England, he wanted to leave at all costs. Our asking price was €105m plus €5m in bonuses, which is payable if the player renews with United or leaves for a fee of more than €50m.

“That brings us to a capital gain in the budget of €95m. Mino Raiola and his company will be paid €27m. Taking fees into account, the total gain for Pogba was €72m.

“Even then we didn’t want to sell him, we wanted to put in French roots at Juventus.”

Pogba has struggled to settle at United, with Jose Mourinho’s side already six points off the pace in the Premier League.
