Real Madrid’s Thibaut Courtois agent has been arrested as part of a money-laundering investigation.
In an investigation into the transfer of striker Aleksandar Mitrovic from Anderlecht to Newcastle in 2015, there has apparently been an arrest.
In a report from BBC.co.uk, there were a number of raids in Monaco, Liege, and London, which resulted in two arrests.
One of those people has been named as Christophe Henrotay, the agent of Belgian international and Real Madrid goalkeeping superstar Thibaut Courtois.
Henrotay is being held in Monaco.
In a statement from the Belgian prosecutor’s office, they said:
“The situation principally is focusing on money laundering relating to the sale of football players.”
The London Metropolitan police were also party to the investigation and confirmed:
The Belgium authorities did confirm that there were two arrests, but could not clarify the name of the other person.
Two people have been detained in an inquiry in Belgium into alleged fraud involving the transfer of football players, prosecutors say.
The investigation is one of many being conducted into several European transfers that have taken place.
It is understood that the investigations are nothing do with the players. But more the source of funds and third party involvement in football transfer activity.
