Super agent Mino Raiola has sadly passed away, for the second time in a week.
Raiola has been enduring an ongoing battle with his health, with news breaking a few days ago that he had died.
It was later clarified that, while Raiola was indeed gravely ill, he was very much alive. Raiola himself took to Twitter to fire back at those who attempted to kill him off.
Current health status for the ones wondering: pissed off second time in 4 months they kill me. Seem also able to ressuscitate.

It must have been incredibly taxing for Raiola’s family to deal with the media speculation at a period when he was in hospital fighting for his life.
With Raiola sadly having now passed away, our thoughts are very much with his loved ones at this impossibly difficult time.
It’s not important, in the grand scheme of things, but it will be intriguing to learn what sort of ripple effect this has on the upcoming transfer window.
After all, one of Raiola’s clients, Erling Haaland, is understood to be on the move. We will have to wait and see how that one plays out now he has passed.
