Paul Pogba’s agent Mino Raiola was paid £24m for brokering the France star’s world-record transfer from Juventus to Manchester United in the summer.
The Italian club’s director general Giuseppe Marotta has confirmed the total of Raiola’s payment from a transfer that fetched a world-record £94m fee.
Speaking at Juve’s AGM on Tuesday, Marotta said: “We made around €95m. Mino Raiola, his representative, will be paid €27m (£24m). The profit on Pogba is around €72m (£64.5m).”
“We didn’t want to sell him. We wanted him to put roots down at Juventus. He arrived from United and after four years with us he decided to return to England. He wanted to leave at all costs.”
Pogba – a Manchester United academy graduate who joined Juventus on a free transfer in 2012 – has made 11 appearances since his return to the club, and scored three goals.
