Battle of the superagents: Mino Raiola's XI vs. Jorge Mendes's XI

Jose Mourinho once again addresses Man United's needs in the transfer market, insisting the squad are balanced.

Over the past 12 years, Jorge Mendes has been by far the most influential agent in the game, but he seems to have been overtaken in prominence this summer by Mino Raiola. The latter has been more visible in bigger deals over the past two months, especially the potential move of Paul Pogba to Manchester United, home of one of Mendes' main client, manager Jose Mourinho.
