Raiola Speaks Out on Bernardeschi Changing His Agent

Mino Raiola said that it is his fault that Federico Bernardeschi has parted ways with him.

The 54-year-old is the most popular football agent in the world and manages a number of high-profile players, including Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba, Erling Haaland and Matthijs de Ligt, to name a few.

However, Raiola has lost a few players lately, first Mohamed Ihattaren and now, Bernardeschi, who signed with Federico Pastorello, who is also the agent of Romelu Lukaku, among others.

Speaking about the 27-year-old, the 54-year-old said, as quoted by Football Italia: “When I lose a player, it’s always my fault. I wish Bernardeschi all the best. They are always free to leave. They aren’t prisoners.

Bernardeschi isn’t the only Juve player who signed with Pastorello lately, with Arthur doing the same not long back.

The 27-year-old’s current contract with the Bianconeri runs out next summer and there have been rumors of negotiations lately. However, with Raiola out and Pastorello in, it will be interesting to see what happens of Bernardeschi’s contract situation.
