Mino Raiola was born in Italy, moved to Holland as a baby and was raised in his family's pizza restaurant, which was frequented by the directors of the local football club. Mino would listen in, interrupt and offer his two cents when he felt like it.

He started in the football business as a translator for the sale of Dennis Bergkamp to Inter, followed by his first big deal involving Pavel Nedved. The really big break was a link-up with Zlatan Ibrahimovic, with the two working on several blockbuster transfers over the years. Mino Raiola's list of clients grew and featured big names such as Paul Pogba, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Erling Haaland, Romelu Lukaku, Henrikh Mkhitaryan, Mario Balotelli and Robinho.

While negotiating some of the world record-setting deals, Minola was bombastic, ruthless and provocative, earning nicknames such as "Mr. Three Hundred Million" and "Mr. Five Percent". He shouted and did whatever it took to get the most for his clients. And he did all this while casually wearing polo shirts and trainers. And of course, getting a big cut of the transfer fees for himself.
