World-renowned football agent Mino Raiola could be set to land a huge €30m commission package if his client Paul Pogba completes a move back to Manchester United, according to the Sunday Times
With Pogba’s return to Old Trafford looking more and more likely, the Sunday Times decided to investigate the financial behind a potential transfer.
They found that the 23-year old’s agent, Mino Raiola, will earn a 30% sell-on fee, which was agreed when Pogba signed for Juventus in 2012.
The total transfer is expected to surpass the £110m mark, a fee that would see the France international become the world’s most expensive player.
As quoted in the Times, Raiola’s €30m payment ‘would represent one of the highest ever payments to an intermediary’.
If Pogba’s transfer goes through, it will mark a hugely profitable summer for Raiola, who has already overseen two of his other clients, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, completing moves to Old Trafford.

First up for Pogba is the small matter of a Euro 2016 final, where host-nation France are set to battle it out with Portugal on Sunday night in Paris.
So far, Pogba has more than proved his ability at this summer’s tournament, playing in all of France’s games in the lead up to the final.
His glistening international form has continued on from a superb year at Juventus, where Pogba guided the Old Lady to the Serie A title having played 35 times in the league, scoring eight goals and notching 12 assists.
