Football – After the death of Mino Raiola, the question remains as to what will happen to the players he represented. An agency that moved more than 800 million in contracts has been orphaned. And some of the best players in the world are in the middle.

The passing of Mino Raiola left a legacy of an empire. A representation agency that manages the destiny of some of the biggest stars in the world of soccer. From Ibrahimovic, to Haaland, Pogba and Donnarumma.
The questions now that Mino is no longer with us are many: who will stay with the agency, will the players stay with the company or will they change agent?

According to Forbes, Raiola had an estimated net worth of $84.7 million. The representative was among the five most powerful sports agents worldwide. And he made his money through commissions from transfer negotiations. During his career, he negotiated more than $847.7 million in contracts.
His team of work
Raiola’s agency is built on a simple foundation. It is based on a structure of few people, all of whom are highly trusted. The key person in the negations was Rafaela Pimienta, his lawyer and partner for 20 years.

In addition, as people who worked on a day-to-day basis in the recruitment of players and in providing services to their players, there was Vicenzo Raiola, his cousin, and José Fortes, a Spanish emigrant who lives in Amsterdam. And he was a key member of the organization in terms of recruiting.
What will happen to the players?
Rafaela will remain in charge of everything, so he will continue to mediate the signings of the players under his care. Two of them are key, Ibrahimovic and Pogba. And both are willing to stay in the structure.

Raiola’s relationship with these two players was very personal. As for the others, including Haaland, it remains to be seen what happens in the future. Although, in principle, they are also counting on them to remain at least for now.
