    They must have some financial qualifications for the finer details of a contract surely, or do they employ someone else for that?

    I can't imagine who would be that dumb, maybe someone without access to PL football?

    Quite a few of them don't, but employ clerks that do.

    Maybe Juventus will take him back as he did ok there. If Mourinho stays I definitely see him leaving.

    40m max is what I would value him at. And that's only because the prices have gone mental.

    Still at Maine Road in my mind.
    The majority of agents have very little training in business management, finance, or legal affairs. As @aguero93:20 said, most outsource those “client services” to accountants, business managers, clerks, and lawyers.

    With very few exceptions, agents are really just curators of relationships/access. The only real “value” (again, I use that word loosely) they create is via establishing and maintaining contacts with decision makers in the footballing world. Even that role is suspect, as often agents merely capitalise on the groundwork of other people in legitimate roles (like coachs, managers, support staff, lawyers, family members, and, of course, the players themselves) have already laid. Being a successful agent is often based entirely on either putting in work on one or two positive deals or being very fortunate to fall into a positive situation or two, then riding that cache (on the back of other’s substantial efforts) for the remainder of their career (a la Raiola).

    You can guess my opinion of agents.
