Born on 4 November 1967, the hard-working Italian football agent used to represent a number of well-known players like Paul Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Marco Verratti, and Erling Haaland to name a few.
The legend also served as the agent of former Czech midfielder Pavel Nedvěd for many years. Speaking seven languages, which included Italian, English, German, Spanish, French, Portuguese and Dutch, is one of his many talents.
Mr. Raiola was among a number of high-profile football agents who threatened FIFA with legal sanctions following the planned cap on transfer payments on 22 January 2020, including Jorge Mendes and Jonathan Barnett.
Before stopping at age 18 in 1987 for becoming head of the youth team, he used to play football for the youth team of HFC Haarlem. Mr. Raiola remained involved in the football world, this time as a football agent after a brief venture as a player and administrator.
He started to work at Sports Promotions, a sports agent company, and assisted in the transfers of several high-profile Dutch players to Italian clubs, such as Ajax player Bryan Roy and Marciano Vink.
More than 20 players playing in European leagues are represented by Raiola. He currently resides in Monaco. The legendary agent played a significant role in two disciplinary hearings instigated in 2008, by the FIGC for transfer irregularities as part of a wider investigation of professional football by Italian authorities.
