In the forward 2021, FIFA (Federation Internationale de Football Association) will significantly innovate the figure of one of the most important protagonists of the football world: the football agent. Inside the World of a Football Agent provides a series of practical cases, experienced first-hand by the author, that will help the readers to immerse themselves in the reality of a football agent that interacts with presidents, CEO, sports directors, supporters, footballers, and their families.

In an ever-increasing need for professionalization, the author, thanks to his background in representing footballers, presents a clear analysis of the current international regulation and its latest regulatory innovations. The audience for the book is represented by all the current or aspiring professionals involved in the football industry: from football agents who want to keep up to date with the latest legislation, to aspiring agents, sports directors or media, who want to understand what is often behind a yes or no in a complicated transfer negotiation. The book will also be of interest to graduate schools of business, sports, marketing, and MBA programs in law.
