The Belgian prosecutor's office confirmed a series of raids in Monaco, Liege and London with two detained relating to charges of alleged money laundering with local media outlets claiming that Christophe Henrotay (Thibaut Courtois' agent and that of former Atlético player Yannik Carrasco) is one of the detained men.

"The situation principally is focusing on money laundering relating to the sale of football players" stated the Belgian prosecutor's office.

The other detained individual is an agent who is reported to represent players currently on the books with AS Monaco and Belgian side Standard Liege.
