Mino Raiola

Agent to Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba, Romelu Lukaku and Gianluigi Donnarumma, Mino Raiola is one of the most powerful men in football.

While former Manchester United coach Sir Alex Ferguson might have had a rough time dealing with him and Raiola might have been investigated for transfer irregularities, he guides the careers of some of the biggest footballers in the world.

Only recently, one of his clients, Lukaku, moved from Everton to Manchester United for a £75m transfer fee.

For someone who became a millionaire at the age of 19, Raiola has made it to the very top and his story is an interesting one. This video below from uMAXit Football's YouTube channel takes you through Raiola's journey to becoming one of the richest and most powerful football agents.

Andreas Pereira believes he is proving his worth to Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho.

Having spent last season gaining first-team experience with LaLiga side Granada, the 21-year-old midfielder returned to Old Trafford looking to force his way into the first team.

Pereira has done his hopes no harm with some impressive performances on United's American pre-season tour, featuring in all five matches and impressing when starting against Real Madrid.

"For me I think it is going well," he said. "I am doing my best, I want to get into the team this season. I want to help my team and hopefully we can achieve a lot this season."

Pereira came off the bench as United suffered their first defeat of pre-season, with Neymar's first-half strike enough to secure Barcelona a 1-0 win in the International Champions Cup. "It was a good test," he told MUTV. "It was good for us, we're in preparation, so we will definitely use that in (proper) competition. "I think it works you harder, you get more focus for the games. "It's a good test for us, as well for them, because we're a big team too. "It's a great test for us. As a team, how to defend players like that and definitely we will use this because we have the Champions League this season. "It is a good test for us and we have to knows what we have to do against them now when we play against them." Provided by Press Association
