Éder Militão transfer from Porto to Real Madrid in the spotlight on agent fees | real Madrid
Portuguese authorities are investigating the â¬ 9million (Â£ 7.7million) paid to two agents in the â¬ 50million transfer that saw Brazilian defender Ãder MilitÃ£o move from Porto to Real Madrid in 2019.
The deal is being investigated by the Departamento Central de Investigacao e Accao Penal (DCIAP) as part of âOperation Red Cardâ. Earlier this week, the investigation led to the arrest of Benfica president Luis Filipe Vieira as well as his son and well-known agent Bruno Macedo.
Vieira – who resigned from his post on Thursday and remains under house arrest after denying the charges – and Macedo are accused of orchestrating a tax evasion and money laundering scheme since 2014 with some of the charges linked to transferred players in Benfica.
