But just who is Bertolucci and how did he make his fortune?

What is Giuliano Bertolucci’s agency?

Bertolucci owns Bertolucci Sports, an agency based in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

What players does Giuliano Bertolucci represent?

Bertolucci represents a wealth of talent boasting a collective market value of €703.3 million. Some of the top names of the firm include Bruno Guimaraes, Gabriel Magalhaes, Marquinhos, Vanderson, Dodo, Diego Carlos, Andrey Santos, Matheus Cunha, Danilo, and Roger Ibanez.

How good is Giuliano Bertolucci’?

There is not a huge amount known about Bertolucci and how he began life as a super-agent.

He moved the likes of Oscar, David Luiz, Lucas Piazon and Alex to Chelsea during their heyday ten years ago, while he often works with Kia Joorabchian in brokering deals.

He caught his first big break with his involvement in Neymar’s move from Santos to Barcelona, which was then a transfer record for a Brazilian player.

He has a daughter, Giulia Bertolucci, and is based in Brazil. He does not shy away from talking to the media on record when asked about speculation of his clients.

When it was reported last year that his client, Gabriel Moscardo, had agreed to a move to Chelsea, the agent came out via ESPN and rubbished the rumours. “It’s all nonsense that’s coming out [in the press]”, he blasted.

What nationality is Giuliano Bertolucci?

Bertolucci is reportedly half-Brazilian and half-Italian.
