Paul Pogba and Erling Haaland's agent, Mino Raiola, has died at the age of 54, his family have confirmed.

Raiola's death comes about two days after he was rumoured to have passed away.

His doctor had dispelled the rumours but insisted that Raiola was fighting for his life.

However, the Italian super agent's family confirmed his death in a statement uploaded on his official Twitter handle on Saturday afternoon.

It read, "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 be forever missed.

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

"We thank everybody for the huge amount of support received during these difficult times and ask for respect to the privacy of family and friends in this moment of grief."
