    Arsenal are one of the biggest spenders despite hardly signing anyone new. Most of it goes to players signing new deals.

    I don't think fee's paid through certain banks are counted, Paperbag & Car Park of Monaco, for example

    There's no doubting that the sums of money agents earn is sickening. However, playing devil's advocate, if the agent was responsible for MK Dons getting at least £500k more than they thought they would or Alli staying for the rest of the season, it would have been money well spent.

    I do think that the authorities need to address the situation with agents as some of them are just too powerful and it is money going out of the game. The industry is strong enough to dictate the terms and eradicate the bad agents, but it doesn't seem to have the appetite to do so which is a shame. A simple way of getting agent's to play fair is to have the agent's fees spread over the length of the player's contract. Perhaps then they wouldn't be so eager to move on their players and will start getting their clients to adhere to the contract that they signed.

    Manchester United paid over £10m to agents and intermediaries during the first half of this season - the biggest chunk of a £46.8m net outlay made by Barclays Premier League clubs to broker transfer deals.

    Among their negotiations were the sale of Angel di Maria to Paris Saint-Germain, the purchase of Memphis Depay from PSV Eindhoven and David de Gea's new contract.

    United spent £10,023,318 net on agents' fees, considerably more than the second-highest, Liverpool, with £6,672,713.

    The figures, which cover every transfer deal and contract negotiation by Premier League, Football League and National League clubs between October 1, 2015 and February 1, 2016, including delayed payments from the summer transfer window, were published by the FA on Friday.

    They have been disclosed in accordance with new FIFA transparency regulations into the dealings of agents and intermediaries.

    Liverpool's dealings included the signings of Christian Benteke from Aston Villa, Roberto Firmino from Hoffenheim and Nathaniel Clyne from Southampton.

    Emirates Marketing Project come in third-highest in the Premier League with £5,880,098, while Arsenal shelled out £3,135,483 net to agents.

    In all, the 20 Premier League clubs paid a net total of £46,852,845 to ensure transfers went through smoothly.

    In the Sky Bet Championship, Queens Park Rangers were the only team to spend in excess of £1m on agents' fees during this period. In all, the 24 second-tier clubs racked up £6,985,109 paying intermediaries.

    In League One, £658,791 was paid and in League Two, £163,334.

    Bury, Peterborough United, Rochdale, Swindon Town, Accrington Stanley, AFC Wimbledon, Cambridge United, Hartlepool United, Mansfield Town and Morecambe didn't spend anything.

    He's got a bit of the Capone about him, 7m isn't much for a Miami villa I guess, he can probably make it back by selling gangster tours or something.

    Also, when Beckham's Miami Spice get going he's in a great place to smooth some deals.

    According to wiki, Al's mother's maiden name was Raiola, so maybe he's getting the old place back in the family.

    Interview with Raiola in the the FT Magazine today. Not the easiest read, it drags on a bit (a lot).
    Extract here re the Pogba transfer to Utd :

    United paid a world record transfer fee of €105m for Pogba in August. Raiola has said he takes only a cut of his players’ salary — but what about media reports that the clubs paid him €20m, as a percentage of the transfer fee? “I can’t talk about the contract but, in a deal like Pogba’s, it’s not just the clubs who earn from it,” he says.
    Were you paid a fee by Juventus?
    “No — not in the way that you’re saying it.”
    So you did get money from Juventus?
    “I have to see how I can phrase this in a way that Juventus cannot tackle me through the law, let’s say. Hmm. How can I say it? [Long pause.] Yes: in this deal Juventus was not the only owner of the player’s rights.”
    But third-party ownership of players (TPO) has been banned?
    “Not then. Only afterwards [by Fifa in 2015].”
    So until TPO was banned, you often owned stakes in players?
    “Not often. But sometimes.”
    And Pogba was one of them?
    “It’s not TPO. Be careful with the legal definition of TPO. But let’s say that in that case there was an upside for our side. And by our side, I mean the player’s side.”
    Which isn’t allowed any more?
    “It’s not allowed any more.”
    Juventus says, “No third party had any ownership of the player’s rights.”

    And on the failed negotiation that resulted in Pogba leaving Utd :
    Ferguson to Raiola: I don’t talk to you if the player is not here.
    Raiola: Get the player out of the locker room and sit him here.
    Pogba enters. Ferguson to Pogba: You don’t want to sign this contract?
    Pogba: We’re not going to sign this contract under these conditions.
    Ferguson to Raiola: You’re a taco.


    Raiola was unfazed, partly because he didn’t know the word.

    Raiola: This is an offer that my chihuahuas — I have two chihuahuas — don’t sign.
    Ferguson: What do you think he needs to earn? R
    aiola: Not that.
    Ferguson: You’re a taco.


    Ferguson’s published verdict on Raiola: “I distrusted him from the moment I met him.”
