first_img 11 11 For Mino Raiola’s reported fee of £25m for his role in Paul Pogba’s move to Man United, the Red Devils could have signed Ilkay Gundogan (who went from Borussia Dortmund to Manchester City for £21.8m). Click the arrow, right, to see who else United could sign for Raiola’s agent fee – Gundogan was one of Europe’s most wanted midfielders a few seasons ago and while his class is undoubted, he has picked up a number of injuries. 11 Paul Pogba’s move back to Manchester United is only now reportedly being held up by his agent’s fee for securing the transfer.Mino Raiola, who also represents new Red Devils Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Henrikh Mkhitaryan, is due £25m should the £100m transfer go through, although the hold up is over who will pay it.While Raiola believes Juventus should pay it as he is bringing them in a world record transfer fee, Juve are refusing to pay him a penny.Manchester United are thought to be willing to compromise and pay half of the £25m, with Juventus paying the other half, but the Italian champions are unwilling to budge.Even if United manage to pay £12.5m, that is still just £0.25m short of the fee they paid for Cristiano Ronaldo, but who could they get for the full £25m, should they end up paying it?Click the arrow above, right, to see who could have been bought in with the fee Raiola is demanding. Marko Pjaca (Dinamo Zagreb to Juventus) – £19m – Pjaca scored 19 goals in 60 games for Zagreb and is the most expensive player to be sold by the Croatian league. 11 11 11 Mario Gotze (Bayern Munich to Borussia Dortmund) – £21.8m – A creative forward who rejected Premier League offers to return to Dortmund. Georginio Wijnaldum (Newcastle to Liverpool) – £25m – Relegated last season but one of the stars of the Eredivisie the season before. 11 Vincent Janssen (AZ Alkmaar to Tottenham) – £18.5m – One of the stars of the Dutch league last season and surely a guarantee of goals comes with this price tag. 11 11 11 Ousmane Dembele (Rennes to Borussia Dortmund) – £12.5m – Dembele is one for the future but tore apart the United defence during Dprtmubd’s 4-1 win over the Red Devils in preseason. Samuel Umtiti (Lyon to Barcelona) – £21m – Umtiti was one of the breakout stars of the French Euro 2016 squad after filling their centre back problems.

Nolito (Celta Vigo to Manchester City) – £14m – Nolito rejected Barcelona to work with Pep Guardiola again but still cost £11m less than Raiola is demanding. Nicolas Gaitan (Benfica to Atletico Madrid) – £20m – A player who has been linked with United almost every summer for the last five seasons. 11 Joe Allen (Liverpool to Stoke City) – £13.5m – United were linked with Allen after a stunning Euro 2016 which saw him named in the Team of the Tournament. last_img
