Pogba costs €100 million
From Monaco, Mino Raiola looks after the interests of such big names as Pogba, Matuidi, Ibrahimovic, Lukaku and Balotelli. MARCA went to interview the famous Italian agent in the Principality where he lives.
Pogba: “For me, he is the flagship of a new generation, the star, the leader. Today, there is nobody like Pogba. Including Barça, there are only seven clubs that can afford him.”
Has Juve become too small for him?: “Perhaps, yes. But when he was just 17, he turned down Ferguson. He chose Juve, as did Ibrahimovic.”
Real Madrid: “Back when they had their chance, they didn’t really know who Pogba was. Other clubs did. Real didn’t want to pay €10 million for him and just a year ago refused to pay €30 million for him. We spoke in Qatar. ‘Why pay €30 million if soon he can come for free?’ they asked. He ended up renewing his contract. If they want Pogba, they can call me. I’m not going to call anyone there. He’s worth more than €100 million, but the price will be set by the club that buys him. I’m in contact with all of them, except Real Madrid. My name is not Jorge Mendes, who manages Real Madrid far too well.”
Jorge Mendes: “He has a conflict of interests regarding the ownership of players. I always look for what is best for my players. He has Mourinho, who is a phenomenon, who hasn’t changed in 20 years.”
Ibrahimovic: “If Mourinho had wanted him, he would have played for Real Madrid. Ibra wanted to go there when he left Barcelona. It would have been a great deal, the perfect revenge against Guardiola.”
