Mino Raiola, the Italian football super agent is dead.

According to Daily Mail, Mino Raiola (54) succumbed to a yet-to-be-publicized illness on Thursday after he was hospitalised in Milan back in January and underwent very delicate surgery.

The condition of the Italian super agent was believed not to be life-threatening and would require a brief period of rehabilitation but has claimed his life.

Raiola was the representative of football stars such as Paul Pogba, Erling Haaland, and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

He was a polyglot who was born in Nocera Inferiore, Italy in 1967 before his family emigrated to Haarlem in the Netherlands the following year.

After brief stints as a footballer and coach, he began his agent career in the 80s, brokering Dennis Bergkamp’s move from Ajax to Inter Milan in the summer of 1993.

He also represented players like Pavel Nedved, Robinho, Mario Ballotelli, Romelu Lukalu, Blaise Matuidi and Gianluigi Donnarumma.

He was reported to have earned as much as £20 million from the world record £89 million sale of Pogba from Juventus to Manchester United in 2016.
