Football is more than just players or managers these days. At a time when commercialism has chewed in on everything, footballers have become brands that ooze cash with as much as a jerk or vibration.

And to bring out the maximum financial potential of a player, an agent is an absolute necessity. Among them, some agents are really powerful. The likes of Jorge Mendes have become a household name in the world of football.
