Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola believes that that within three or four years, we could be seeing players transfer for £200 million or even more, smashing Pogba’s current £89 million record.
Mino Raiola, the super-agent who built a path for Pogba’s record-breaking move from Juventus to Manchester United, believes that world-class players in the future could cost in excess of £200 million – more than double of Pogba’s current record.
The Dutchman believes that players who reach the level of Lionel Messi and Neymar in the future can easily go for around £200 million. He even went to mention that such record-breaking transfers would most probably involve Brazilians players.
He told talkSPORT: “How the economy is evolving, especially in the Premier League, we will not be far away – within three or four years – from a £200m deal.
“I even think that maybe within two or three years that can happen.
“They will probably be Brazilian because they add something special. A wonder child like the new Neymar or the new Messi for sure will make £200m.”
Mino Raiola did good business with Manchester United this summer, after three of his clients joined Jose Mourinho’s Red Devils squad.
Zlatan Ibrahimović, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, and Paul Pogba – all clients of Raiola – joined Manchester United this summer as Mourinho looks to re-kindle United’s dominance in the Premier League.
Paul Pogba, who broke the world transfer record with his return to Manchester United this summer, earned Raiola a massive £20 million in agent fees, although the agent himself insists that he puts his clients before money.
Pogba broke Gareth Bale’s then record £86 million transfer fee which was paid by Real Madrid in 2013.
Before Gareth Bale’s move the Spanish Capital, the world-record transfer fee was set by Cristiano Ronaldo’s £75 million move to Real Madrid in 2009.
