Haaland and Pogba are some of the players expected to be on the move this summer

After a short illness, the super-agent Mino Raiola passed away on Saturday at the age of 54, just two days after his death had been prematurely reported.

Raiola was one of the most powerful figures in football and the agent to some of the game's biggest stars, including Erling Haaland, Paul Pogba and Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

This summer he was set to be involved in some of the biggest moves on the transfer market once again, with Haaland likely to leave Borussia Dortmund and Pogba's Manchester United contract expiring.

Add to that list Matthijs De Ligt, who could leave Juventus, or Marco Verrati. Then there is the goalkeeper Donnarumma, de Vrij o young Ajax star Gravenberch.

The question everyone is asking is: Who will take over Mino's empire?

In Haaland's case, his father, Alf-Inge Haaland, and Mino's lawyer, the Brazilian Rafaela Pimenta, have emerged as important figures.

Having learned from Raiola, Pimenta has become an important voice in negotiations over Haaland's future and other clients represented by the agent.

In fact, the Haaland-Real Madrid meeting in Monaco last February was with her, along with Alf-Inge.

We will see what other members of staff step forward.
