OTHER During several house-searches in order to the investigation of financial fraud in football, two people are suspected of money laundering and bribery when transferring players. One of them is Christophe Henrotay, who was arrested by French authorities this morning in Monaco.
It is not clear yet which transfers are involved. But Henrotay arranged the transfers of former Anderlecht player Aleksandar Mitrovic, Romelu Lukaku, Youri Tielemans (photo) and Leander Dendoncker. He also acted as an intermediary for Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois.
The federal public prosecutor indicates that the arrests are the result of the searches at RSC Anderlecht and the Belgian Football Association at the end of April this year. This morning a total of seven house-searches took pace: 4 in Monaco, 2 in Belgium and one in London.
