Mino Raiola took home €27 million for Pogba transfer

Juventus CEO Giuseppe Marotta has revealed that Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola pocketed a whopping €27 million for facilitating the deal that saw the Frenchman return to Manchester United for a world-record fee of over €105 million this summer.

Our sale price was €105 million, plus another €5 million bonus if Pogba signs a new deal at United or if he’s resold for more than €50 million,” Marotta told reporters at a press conference on Tuesday morning. “That brings us to a capital gain in the budget of €95 million. Mino Raiola and his company will be paid €27 million. Taking fees into account, the total gain for Pogba was €72 million.

Marotta also revealed that Juventus were keen to keep Pogba but that the player was so set on leaving that selling was the only plausible option.

“Even then we didn’t want to see him, we wanted to establish French roots at Juventus,” he said. “But after four years at Juventus he decided to return to England. He wanted to move at all costs and not just for the money. We could have met his demands, but that would have resulted in unrest in the dressing room.”
