It’s time to talk about the four Mino Raiola clients who can go to FC Barcelona in the upcoming summer transfer window. 

Mino Riola is already moving everything he’s got to take several clients of his to FC Barcelona next summer. We already told you about his intentions to place Erling Haaland at the Catalan club. The agent simply thinks pinning one of the best strikers in the world against Kylian Mbappe at Real Madrid makes great entertainment. We also recently spoke about the other client he discussed during the meeting with Joan Laporta last week.

But there are two more players who could come to the Catalan club if Mino Raiola does his job right before the end of the next transfer window. One of them seems like a perfect fit for the Catalan club’s needs, whereas the other one could block the development of young talent. But Raiola won’t care about these details as long as he gets to do what he wants. 

One player from Italy and one from England.

Apart from Haaland and De Ligt, Express reported that Mino Riola is also trying to get Stefan De Virj and Paul Pogba to FC Barcelona. The Dutch defender is actually getting to an elite level at Inter Milan under manager Antonio Conte. He managed to help his squad dominate in Serie A with 11 points ahead of their biggest rivals: AC Milan. Raiola knows he can accommodate De Vrij at a bigger club and Barcelona is the best option right now.

Pogba’s case is less likely due to the fact that Barcelona traditionally produces elite-level midfielders. They wouldn’t want other key players such as Ilaix Moriba or Pedri to get stuck in their development. Plus, Frenkie de Jong has a bright future at the Catalan club. Regardless of how his proposals are received, Mino will still try to bring all four players to the Blaugranas next summer.
