Christophe Henrotay, the agent of Real Madrid goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois, has been arrested for money laundering and corruption.
Henrotay also includes former Atletico Madrid winnger Yannick Carrasco among his clients alongside other Belgian internationals such as Kevin Mirallas (Antwerp) and previously, Youri Tielemans (Leicester City).
“The events mainly affect money laundering and private corruption operations in the context of transfers of football players,” read a statement from the Belgian federal prosecutor, as cited by Marca.
The statement has added that two of the people investigated have been arrested, a player agent in Monaco and his assistant in Liege.
Belgian news agency RTBF television has claimed that Henrotay is the agent involved in the case.
