Super agents Raiola, Mendes battle for PSG keeper Alphonse Areola

PSG goalkeeper Alphonse Areola is the subject of a super agents battle.

L'Equipe says Jorge Mendes was in contact with Real Madrid over the summer to offer Areola.

However, the youngster is now a target for Mino Raiola, who boasts four players at Manchester United - Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Paul Pogba, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Sergio Romero.

Like Mendes, Raiola wants to add Areola to his stable, but is struggling to convince the keeper's current rep, Franck Belhtassen, to release him.

The 23 year-old has displaced Kevin Trapp in recent weeks in the PSG goal.
