Report: Zaniolo rejects Raiola

Roma and Italy starlet Nicolo Zaniolo has reportedly rejected the chance to become a client of super-agent Mino Raiola.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Raiola was among the many representatives and agencies who wanted to take on Zaniolo in light of his breakthrough for club and country.

However, father and former Genoa striker Igor Zaniolo told the newspaper: “We’ll stay with [Claudio] Vigorelli.”

The 19-year-old has already changed agent in his short career, switching to Vigorelli from Stefano Castelnovo.

Raiola, for his part, has a star-studded clientele that includes Paul Pogba, Mario Balotelli, Gianluigi Donnarumma and Marco Verratti.
