IMPORTANT UPDATE: It has been confirmed by the doctor treating Mino Raiola and his right-hand man that the 54-year-old is not dead.

According to José Fortes Rodriguez, right-hand man Mino Raiola, the super-agent is currently fighting for his life. He told NOS:

"He's in a bad position, but he hasn't died."

Reputed journalist Fabrizio Romano has also brought to light some important quotes in this regard. The Italian posted a quote involving the doctor treating Mino, who suggested that he was 'outraged' by claims that the 54-year-old had died.

Dr. Alberto Zangrillo from San Raffaele Hospital in Milano tells Ansa on Mino Raiola conditions: “I’m outraged by the phone calls from pseudo-journalists speculating on the life of a man who is fighting to survive”.
