    That's disgusting. A years work. 2 transfer windows. What do you reckon their average commission is, 15% of the fee?

    Raiola and Felicevich should be higher up in the 2018 rankings, after all the fees they trousered for the Sanchez & Mkhitaryan deals.

    https://www.forbes.com/sites/jasonbelzer/2017/09/25/the-worlds-most-powerful-sports-agents-2017/

    The list ranks the world's top 50 agents across six sports: baseball (which has 13 represented), basketball (12), football (10), hockey (7), soccer (7) and tennis (1). While there is only a small correlation between the maximum commission percentage allowable for each sport and the number of agents on the list ― higher commissions do not necessarily mean more agents ― there is a stronger correlation between commission percentage and where the agents appear in the ranking (higher commissions mean higher rankings), with soccer (10%) and baseball (5%) allowing agents to charge the highest commission rates.

    Umm, someone just multiplied the commissions column by 10 to get the contracts column. Great journalism.

    I guess Forbes will have to update the average commission rate to 13% for the 2018 list!

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/fo...s-earned-2-5bn-transfers-five-years-UEFA.html

    New research from UEFA suggests football agents have taken a staggering £2.5billion as commission on player transfers to clubs in Europe since 2013 alone.

    This works out at around 13 per cent commission on the total incoming transfer activity of around £19billion spent in the period 2013 to 2017 inclusive.

    A £100k pw deal over four years is £20m. If the agent is getting 10% that would be £2m. I think the fees for Kane, Alli, Son and some lesser lights quickly add up.

    While I think the player should pay the agent, clubs paying seems to be the way it is done in football. Why be transparent when you can introduced conflict of interest to advantage?

    I thought Agents fees were on signing on bonuses and the ongoing coming out of player salaries

    It looks like something is being worked on.

    I'm guessing, but I think the signing bonuses are where the ridiculous numbers come from. The club is paying agents for persuading the player to chose that club rather than advising their client on their best interests.

    If agents don't get paid by the club for new contracts, then there is something dodgy going on at Spurs.
