Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola is allegedly entitled to a 25-per cent cut of his transfer fee, according to reports in Spain.
The furore and speculation continues as to whether the Juventus midfielder will be actually moving on, with Manchester United understood to be willing to part with a £100m-plus transfer fee in the coming days.
Previous reports had stated Real Madrid have cooled their interest due to his rocketing sky-high figures.
And now a number of Spanish media outlets have alleged Juventus are having to demand a world-record fee because Raiola has a stake in Pogba’s economic rights.
The France starlet earlier this year settled a commercial rights stand-off with his former agent.
Third-party ownership is outlawed in England which, if the reports are correct, could go some way to explaining why United are prepared to pay Raiola a mammoth £20m commission to push Pogba in their direction.
