Carmine Raiola, better known as Mino, was born on November 4, 1967, in Nocera Inferiore, a commune located in Salerno, Italy, and in the last hours was in the news for having to deny his own death.

In any case, he lived only a short time on Italian soil because when he was a child he emigrated with his parents to the Netherlands. He settled in Haarlem, where he even played for the club of the same name as a youth player, and there he had his first job: helping out in his father's pizzeria.

Over the years, Mino began to show his more entrepreneurial side, to the point that he bought and sold a McDonald's franchise. He studied law and seven languages, which, according to them, he now speaks with ease, which has allowed him to enter soccer much more easily.

Started at Intermezzo players' agency

It was in the Intermezzo soccer players agency where he started his career as an agent until he got the opportunity to work alone and became known in the Old Continent in the 90's when he was the intermediary for the Dutch Dennis Bergkamp to move from Ajax to Inter Milan.

Little by little its fame grew, as did the number of players and their quality. But with it came controversy, especially in relation to the commissions charged on several of the major transfers of its players.

In Paul Pogba's transfer to Manchester United, he made 48 million euros, according to the Football Leaks leak published by Der Spiegel. For Ibrahimovic's move to Barça in 2014, where he played only one season, he collected around 11.5 million euros.

He has confronted FIFA

He was always willing to question certain laws imposed by soccer associations, including those of FIFA itself, as he did recently together with his colleagues Jorge Mendes and Jonathan Barnett.

The three of them created The Football Forum where they showed their rejection of the new measures that the highest body of world soccer established in relation to transfers and also to the representatives themselves.
