Jorge Mendes, investigated and under suspicion



The Portuguese Public Prosecutor’s Office is investigating jorge mendes, the most powerful representative of soccer players and coaches in the world, for possible irregularities in their financial assets.

Thus, the quantities that the superagent of Cristiano Ronaldo has to his credit and that of his three companies: Gestifute, Start and Polaris. There are, in total, 12 accounts that are now controlled within the framework of a double operation against corrupt activities. The largest corresponds to the device called ‘Red Card’, which focuses on Benfica, while the so-called ‘Extension’ emphasizes Porto.

Therefore, the two most important Lusitanian teams under close observation, just when those of the Stadium of Light are preparing to play the round of 16 of the Champions League against Ajax de Amsterdam and those of the Estadio do Dragao prepare their confrontation with the Italians of Lazio in the round of 32 of the Europa League.

For now, it has come to light that the period between 2015 and 2019 saw how Mendes entered 131 million euros, of which 50 were billed to Benfica and seven to Porto. Likewise, it now transpires that the beginning of the investigations dates back to September 2020. Consequently, a year and four months full of investigations of who also represents Joao Félix and Jose Mourinho, among many other players and coaches, such as the emerging Ansu Fati.

The high-level representative stated in his day that he has never advised the players “on tax matters”, among other reasons because they usually hire their own assistants and experts in different matters. Some statements made back in 2017, within the framework of the operation directed against Radamel Falcao, a striker who played for Atlético de Madrid and today defends the Rayo Vallecano shirt, for tax fraud.

And it is that Jorge Mendes also worked with the Colombian scorer and, later, had to go before the judge as a defendant in the media case that involved Cristiano Ronaldo (when he changed Real Madrid for Juventus Turin).

It is with the current member of the staff of the Manchester United with whom he maintains a more intense relationship and has even collaborated with him in several charitable actions, for example in the donation of two complete intensive care units for two hospitals in Lisbon and Porto.
