Juventus general manager Giuseppe Marotta confirms agent Mino Raiola received €27m from Paul Pogba’s Man United deal


The France international, who had left Manchester United on a Bosman transfer when his contract expired in 2012, returned to Old Trafford for a world-record €105m (£89.3m) initial fee on August 8 after several weeks of negotiations, with sources saying Raiola’s fee had been the final sticking point in the talks.


Giuseppe Marotta has now told shareholders that Raiola, whose clients Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan also joined United in the summer, received €27m — £24.1m at current exchange rates — from the deal.

“He [Pogba] came from United for a price of around €1.5m,” Marotta said. “After four years with us he decided to return to England. He wanted to leave at all costs. Our asking price was €105m plus €5m in bonuses, which is payable if the player renews with United or leaves for a fee of more than €50m.

“That brings us to a capital gain in the budget of €95m. Mino Raiola and his company will be paid €27m. Taking fees into account, the total gain for Pogba was €72m. Even then we didn’t want to sell him, we wanted to put in French roots at Juventus.”
