He has lost his passport for the time being, and his luxury yacht was also turned inside out, but football broker Didier Frenay (54) was released again on Tuesday afternoon after questioning. His lawyer Sven Mary confirms this to our editorial team.

Belgian investigators knocked on Didier Frenay’s door in Monaco on Monday. The country’s largest football agent and former football player at Cercle Brugge, Seraing and Charleroi, among others, was questioned for hours about his precise role in the transfer of Kevin De Bruyne to Wolfsburg, Germany.
The ongoing judicial investigation is an extension of the previous arrest of real estate agent Patrick De Koster. Investigating judge Michel Claise is investigating the (secret) commissions that the brokers charged with that transfer, worth 23 million euros. The transfer dates from 2014, the investigation started after a complaint from the clan-De Bruyne last year. There would be money laundering and forgery. The court is investigating whether additional constructions – out of sight of the tax authorities and Kevin De Bruyne – were set up via tax havens.
House search on the hunt
After De Koster, Didier Frenay is now also targeted. The broker of Dimata, Pavard, Zouma and Perisic, among others, received an invitation to come and present himself for questioning in Brussels last week. However, Frenay did not see that because of corona and the fear of ending up behind bars for weeks.
Belgian investigators then made the opposite move and also searched his yacht in the marina of Monaco on Tuesday morning. Investigators also raided Luxembourg, where the headquarters of his agency Starfactory is located.
Released, no bail
Unlike De Koster and earlier his Monegasque colleague Christophe Henrotay, Frenay was neither charged nor placed under a warrant on Tuesday. His lawyer Sven Mary confirms this. Frenay was released without paying bail. Henrotay, for example, was only released in Monaco after he put a quarter of a million euros on the table. Frenay is under judicial control. He had to hand in his passport and is not allowed to leave Monaco for the time being.
