Rafaela Pimenta represents Erling Haaland and is a leader in a sector with little female representation.


Rafaela Pimenta has become one of the most important figures in the world of football and a key player in the transfer of the biggest stars.

She is the heir to Mino Raiola's empire following his death at 54 years old, and now represents players such as Haaland, Pogba, De Ligt, among others.

In this way, she has taken a significant step towards equality, becoming a leader in a sector dominated by men.

"Now they always know me, but many times I asked Raiola to call a club because if I went first, they wouldn't listen to me," Pimenta recounts.

She has even admitted that in some negotiations, she has brought a man with her because "I know it's easier to be listened to."

Before working in football, she was a professor of international law and speaks eight languages, both qualities that greatly facilitate her work.

Since the beginning, she has wanted to impose her own stamp. Unlike Raiola, she is much more discreet, quietly getting to work away from the media.

However, those who have seen her negotiate describe her as a tough person who always works towards getting the best for her client.

Now one of her most important tasks is Haaland's future. Pimenta herself has acknowledged that he could move for a billion dollars in his career.
