Wednesday morning has brought news of two arrests, as the authorities continue their investigation into suspected fraud and money laundering with regard to the transfer of Aleksandar Mitrovic from Anderlecht to Newcastle United in 2015.

Police investigating suspected fraud linked to the transfer of Serbian striker Aleksandar Mitrovic to Newcastle United have raided properties in Belgium, Monaco and London, arresting two people including an agent, officials said Wednesday.



The investigation is claimed to centre around transfers that happened between 2013 and 2015, Newcastle having bought both Aleksandar Mitrovic and Chancel Mbemba from Anderlect in summer 2015.



Aleksandar Mitrovic moved to Newcastle United in summer 2015 for around £14m and now that move is reported to be part of a investigation into alleged moneylaundering.

This story first surfaced in April of this year (see below) when police carried out raids in Belgium at Anderlecht’s stadium and training ground, as well as at the Belgian FA and player management company ‘One Goal Management’.

Super agent Pini Zahavi was involved in the deal that brought Aleksandar Mitrovic to St James Park but he has denied any collaboration with the company One Goal Management in the Serbian striker’s deal.

The public prosecutor has told the Belgian media that this raid is completely separate from the large scale fraud investigation in Belgian football (Operation Zero), that started in October.
