New York Times journalist Tariq Panya tweeted that he had been told by a “close friend of Raiola” that the agent was “very very ill”.

And respected Italian football journalist Fabrizio Romano posted that Raiola’s doctor at the San Raffaele Hospital in Milan is “outraged” with the speculation “on the life of a man who is fighting to survive”.

Despite this, tributes came in for the football innovator on social media.

Spanish giants Real Madrid expressed their “deep regret” that Raiola had died and passed on their “condolences to his family and friends”.

Raiola has been involved in some huge transfers in the Beautiful Game, and was known for his shrewd bargaining skills with some of the biggest clubs around the world.

Forbes estimate his personal fortune to be around £68million.

He was the man who brokered the £89m deal to take Paul Pogba back to Manchester United.

It was a then world record move from Juventus in 2016, which has since been eclipsed.

SunSport previously revealed how Raiola’s journey to the top of football started by making pizzas.

Born in Nocera Inferiore in Salerno, south-east of Naples, the Raiola family moved to the Dutch city of Haarlem when Mino was just one.

There, they opened a pizzeria called Napoli in Haarlem’s Grote Markt and, not for the first time, Mino was the star with his sales patter, charm and customer service making him more than just a waiter.

Those interpersonal skills were soon transferred as he negotiated with some of the sport’s biggest characters.

In January he was forced to deny having emergency surgery after undergoing what he described as ‘medical checks that needed anesthesia’.

Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport had claimed the super-agent, 54, was rushed to San Raffaele hospital in Milan for surgery.

But Raiola put out a statement to deny the claims.
