The controversial agent Mino Raiola has spoken with the British newspaper Daily Mail in an interesting interview where he talks about Real Madrid, Pogba or Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Raiola has a special talent and now he’s the agent of Balotelli, Ibra or Pogba, among others. He has earned this summer more than Cristiano Ronaldo or Messi in the whole year.
He has become an attraction for the media. How he can move in the backstage of the football show is very interesting. Besides, there are many legends about his style of life or the money he can earn. Of course, being in touch with Ibrahimovic or Mario Balotelli make him very special and everytime he talks it’s a good idea to listen.
In this interview with the Daily Mail, Raiola explains why Pogba didn’t arrive to Real Madrid: “Zinedine Zidane’s will was very strong but we weren’t sure it was the club’s will”, Raiola says about the frustrated movement. In the same line, he speaks very well about Arsène Wenger and Arsenal.
He also explained how Pogba finished at Manchester United and the importance of José Mourinho: “Mourinho was also interested in him some years earlier, so we knew his return to Manchester United was the right thing to do. You need to have big balls to complete a world record transfer fee and Mourinho has these balls”, Raiola says. “For the player, going to Real Madrid would be easier, play la Liga, Champions… but he wanted this challenge”, the agent tells.
Finally, Raiola also speaks about Mario Balotelli, who is now playing at Nice: “italy is unbearable for Balotelli because of the press pressure. If he settles down in Nice and score goals, he could be very attractive for a Premier League coach next summer, when he will become a free agent. France needed him as they needed Zlatan. It’s good for the tournament”, Raiola says to the Daily Mail.
