Agent Mino Raiola has died at the age of 54 following an undisclosed illness. 

Raiola represented some of the game's biggest players including Erling Haaland, Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Paul Pogba. Matthijs de Ligt, Gianluigi Donnarumma, Jesse Lingard, Blaise Matuidi, Hirving Lozano and Mario Balotelli were also among his client list.

On Thursday, news of his passing broke prematurely, which Raiola dismissed with a post that read: "Current health status for the ones wondering: pissed off second time in 4 months they kill me. Seem also able to resuscitate."
