This is one way to cash in on a big signing.

Mino Raiola is one of soccer’s most famous agents, repping players like Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Mario Balotelli, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Paul Pogba.

It’s been a good summer for the Raiola clientele—all of those names save for Balotelli signed with Manchester United. Pogba went for what is believed to be a record transfer fee. As part of the deal, Raiola reportedly pocketed a £20 million agent fee, which he is apparently putting to good use.

Raiola’s purchase of Al Capone’s old Miami Beach villa is evidence enough, costing reportedly over $9 million, according to the Miami Herald.

Does this mean anything bigger? (No.) Do we need a soccer edition of HBO’s Ballers? (No.)

Does Raiola have a lot of money? (Yes.)

In the states, we call this a flex.
