High-profile super agent Mino Raiola has died at the age of 54 following an illness, his family has confirmed.

It comes after Raiola – the representative of such stars as Paul Pogba, Erling Haaland and Zlatan Ibrahimovic – was forced to take to social media in a furious final tweet while fighting for his life in hospital to slam suggestions he had died on Thursday.

But a statement from his family released barely 48 hours later on Saturday said: ‘In infinite sorrow, we share the passing of the most caring and amazing football agent that ever was.

‘Mino fought until the end with the same strength he put on negotiation tables to defend our players. As usual, Mino made us proud and never realised it.

‘Mino touched so many lives through his work and wrote a new chapter in the history of modern football. His presence will forever be missed.

‘Mino’s mission of making football a better place for players will continue with the same passion.’

Forbes estimated last year that Raiola’s personal wealth was in the region of £62m.

It was reported that Raiola earned as much as £20million from the world record £89m sale of Pogba from Juventus to Manchester United in 2016
