Four Real Madrid youth players have been arrested by the Spanish Guardia Civil for their possible involvement in the dissemination of a private video of a sexual nature: this is what was reported by several Iberian media, citing sources close to the investigations. According to Cadena Ser, the young players involved – one from Castilla and three from Real Madrid C – were released after being interviewed by investigators.
The Efe agency reports that in the video in question there are images of apparently consensual sexual relations between one of these footballers and a 16-year-old. The alleged crime is “revelation of secrets of a sexual nature”as the dissemination of this video would have occurred without the girl’s consent.
In an official statement, Real Madrid announced that they are aware of the fact that the four players “have given a statement to the Guardia Civil regarding a complaint for the alleged dissemination of a private video on WhatsApp”. The club also announced that «once the details of the facts are known, appropriate measures will be taken». The identities and ages of the players involved in the case have not yet emerged.
