Mino Raiola Is in series in this final past of 2019 and beginnings of the 2020. It does few days, the known agent of footballers left clear that Paul Pogba wished to go of the Manchester United. I do not content with this, the Italian decided to take out the tanks and loaded against the English club by not leaving that the French go out. After these statements against the 'network devils', the one of Nocera Inferiore has decided that it is the moment to attack to the FC Barcelona by another of his customers.

In this case, it treats of Matthijs of Ligt, player of the Juventus of Turín that pretended the Barça in summer. The culés insisted with him from a lot before finalising the past campaign, but at the end the Dutch decided fichar by the Juve. Raiola, that was decisive so that the defender left to Italy, criticised to the Barcelona by how treated to his represented when they wanted to ficharle.

"In Holland almost think that the Barça is a Dutch club and no one foreign, by what saw like a species of sacrilege that Matthijs did not go there. The Catalans thought, if Of Jong comes, he also... In summary, treated it as to a cheese", signalled to Voetbal International, rajando so much of the blaugrana as of what said in Holland.

But no only it referred to this and Raiola also cleared one of the big reasons by which his customer did not finish in the Camp Nou. Questioned by the journalist on this, the Italian ensured that Gerard Hammered had to see a lot in this decision, since it was his direct competition. "You think that somebody as I Hammered would do to a side?", it signalled without miramientos.

To Of Ligt does not move him the money

The also representative of Zlatan Ibrahimovic, recently arrived to the Milan, also insisted in that Of Ligt did not go to the Juve by money, as many have said. The bianconeros offered him a better wage that the Barça, but Mino recognises that what more interested him to the Dutch was the possibility to play each week. "Of Ligt is not interested in the money, only wants to play to the football. And the Juve already wanted to it does a year", explained.

Before finalising the interview, Raiola explained an anecdote on the central with Pavel Nedved, vice-president of the Juve. It seems that the Czech is hallucinating with the level of the ex captain of the Ajax. "Often I speak with Nedved, that is like a son for me, and he says me: 'Mino, this is even more crazy that I, this boy is a Balloon of Gold'", admitted the controversial agent.
