La Liga: Agent controlling football Madrid?

The portuguese super agent manages players in Real Madrid with an estimated worth of approximately $500 millions. However, he's not only managing Real Madrid superstars. He's also managing some of the players in Atletico Madrid, one of them who is also their biggest star, the striker Falcao.

But that's not all. He also manages the manager of Real Madrid. The club who is in a odd situation. José Mourinho, the manager of Real Madrid decides what players he wants to bring in, what contracts to renew, how big salary they are entitled to and so on.

Just by reading this far, you might notice that there's a huge conflict in interest.
