Rafaela Pimenta Best Transfer Deal of the Year
This Award has a special value. It is linked to a deal that was closed while a great figure in football and in the working life of Rafaela Pimenta was leaving the scene. We are talking about Mino Raiola, to whom we want to dedicate a round of applause. It’s an opportunity for us to remember him, not only because he is on the honour roll of award-winning agents in Dubai, but for his great ability to find talents and know how to help them, representing them the best way possible in the complicated and difficult world of football.
Rafaela was by Mino’s side since they first met in Brazil, and today she deserves recognition for the work they carried out for so many years. The Award is linked to the transfer of Erling Haaland from Borussia Dortmund to Manchester City, offering the Premier League, Guardiola and Soriano a centre-forward capable of immediately taking off, thanks to talent, physical strength and an instinct for finding the goal. Rafaela Pimenta is a woman who gives confidence to those many important athletes she represents. Raiola left them in good hands.
