Raiola to assist Juventus?

Super agent Mino Raiola could play a pivotal role in Juventus’ summer transfer operations, report Tuttosport.

According to the Turin daily, the man who represents players such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Mario Balotelli may aid the Old Lady ahead of 2012-13.

Raiola has already spoken to the Italian giants while representing Manchester United teenager Paul Pogba about a summer move.

He may also facilitate a bid for Manchester City’s Nigel De Jong given that his contract with the Premier League club expires in 2013.

The story also suggests that Raiola could help influence a bid for Arjen Robben of Bayern Munich, a player who boss Antonio Conte admires.

However, the Dutchman reportedly wants to sign a new deal with the German giants rather than leave for Serie A.
