Sources close to super-agent Mino Raiola confident of securing deal for Tottenham superstar

Mino Raiola

Super-agent Mino Raiola is confident of securing a deal to represent Tottenham attacker Dele Alli, according to reports. Alli, 21, has turned into a superstar since his move from Milton Keynes Dons in 2015, having hit 32 goals in 96 games during his first two seasons with Spurs.

The midfielder, however, has received a lot of flak for his performances this season but has still managed to record 9 goals and 10 assists in all competitions in a topsy-turvy campaign. The Independent report that Alli is coming to an end of his representation contract with British agent Rob Segal and it is very likely he will not renew the deal.

The recent development has sparked a flurry of interest from some of European football’s biggest agencies, for a young player viewed as potentially one of the most marketable in the world. The report adds that Raiola, one of the world’s most well-known agents is now confident of winning the battle this year.

The Italian-born Dutch football agent has over 50 players on his book and has been responsible for some of the biggest deals over the last two years including Paul Pogba’s then world record transfer from Juventus to Manchester United.

Raiola has entered the market over the last few weeks, and the so-called super agent’s track record is seen as very influential. Given that he represents Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Pogba among others, adding Alli to his list of clients would simply be considered as another coup.

The Dutchman has had some dealings with Spurs chairman Daniel Levy in the past, having represented former manager Martin Jol and ex-midfielder Etienne Capoue. Levy would not be that happy with Alli teaming up with Raiola, given that the club are in talks to extend the England international’s contract.

But as it stands, the chairman won’t have a say on Alli’s decision and our club would be hoping Raiola doesn’t attempt to tempt the midfielder into moving on. If at all Alli replaces Segal with Raiola, it would be catastrophic for our club as the ‘super-agent’ would ensure a big move for the English midfielder.

Given the fact that Raiola has a track record of sealing high-profile transfers for his clients, this is particularly not something that will go down well with our fanbase.
