Super agent Mino Raiola spoke today to QuoteNet.nl regarding the future of his client, Ajax winger Justin Kluivert, who has been linked with a potential move to Roma as his contract is set to expire in June 2019.
“The only thing I’ve been accused of, so far, is that I am doing my job and defending my player: so I see this as a compliment. The only thing that’s happened up until now is that Justin isn’t signing a renewal, which doesn’t mean he wants to leave. No, it’s Ajax who want him to sign a renewal so they can ask for more. Who is money wolf here? If he remains next season, it means he stayed and respected his contract. Is that not what everyone wants? Or do they want him to renew so they can ask for more money? If they want him to stay, he doesn’t have to sign a renewal. Ajax want him to renew so they can ask for more. Look, the stupid public opinion is that I’m pushing him to leave. Not renewing your contract doesn’t mean you are leaving. Ajax want him to because otherwise they won’t earn more. The real question is why does everyone want to leave Ajax? I’m not here to win a popularity contest.”
