Why FIFA is investigating Pogba’s world-record move to Manchester United


The current news trending as FIFA is investigating Paul Pogba’s world-record transfer from Juventus to Manchester United, because the “agent – as opposed to player – is receiving massive chunk of his sell-on fee”, according to German football expert, Raphael Honigstein.

It is reported that Honigstein, in a series of tweets on Wednesday morning, says it “is highly unusual and raises questions”.

He wrote: “Raiola’s fee of 16m for bringing Pogba to Man Utd – paid by Man Utd over course of contract – is more than double what you’d expect.

“Agent – as opposed to player – receiving massive chunk of his sell-on fee is highly unusual and raises questions.

The France midfielder cost United £89million last summer.

“We don’t comment on contracts. FIFA have had the documents since the transfer in August,” a United spokesman said.

A FIFA spokesperson told Omnisport: “We can confirm that FIFA TMS [Transfer Matching System] has been requesting information on this matter.

“We have no further comment at this stage.”

Pogba’s agent, Mino Raiola, will reportedly pocket over £41million from his client’s move to Manchester United.

Raiola’s earnings are said to be £41.39m – netting £23m from the transfer fee. The superagent, who also brokered Ibrahimovic’s move to United, will also pocket over £16m in future payments during Pogba’s United stay.
