Sports

FIFA intends to issue new regulations against player agents early next year. This discourse was met with threats of legal action from Mino Raiola and colleagues.

The agents of famous players such as Mino Raiola, Jonathan Barnett and Jorge Mendes, who represent some of football’s most famous players, have all vowed to fight the plot.

However, FIFA is determined to bring greater transparency to transfers and reduce excesses that, in some cases, have led to agents being paid more to negotiate deals than players’ salaries.

“They should not assume that FIFA did not consult with the agency,” said Emilio Garcia Silvero, chief legal and compliance officer of FIFA . “Some agents don’t want to consult with FIFA.”

“It makes us feel uncomfortable. We cannot accept this imbalance. That is one of the main things we want to change with the agency law.”
