Jorge Mendes Best Agent of the Year Sponsored by Waldorf Astoria DIFC
Awarded by: His Excellency Mattar Mohammed Al Tayer, Vice Chairman of the Dubai Sports Council
There is a “magician” here in Dubai who is one of the family as his trophy shelf features ten Globe Soccer awards. The eleventh for Jorge Mendes comes after masterminding a market worth over 420 million euros, enlivened by 21 transfers, with the main deal closed on the Benfica – Liverpool axis, thanks to the Uruguayan talent Darwin Nunez being paid 75 million plus 25 bonuses. This was the most expensive purchase of all time for the English vice champions of Europe.
