Three Los Blancos players have allegedly been arrested in connection with a sexual video of a minor that has been shared around players at the club

Three unnamed Real Madrid players have allegedly been arrested in connection with a sextape recorded with a minor that has been passed around a group of other players. 

Real Madrid players involved in sextape scandal

According to the Spanish publication ElConfidencial, the three players are under investigation for “revealing secrets of a sexual nature” and could be headed for serious consequences. 

The names of the three players are shrouded in mystery as the case is still under investigation by the Spanish authorities.

The Judicial Police of the Civil Guard of Las Palmas are said to be investigating the charges against the Real Madrid players who are alleged to have made and shared the video with a minor. 

Real Madrid yet to comment on players’ arrest

The three Los Blancos players in question are believed to be part of the Real Madrid Castilla or junior teams, but the report does not rule out the possibility of senior team members being implicated in the sextape scandal. 

Real Madrid are yet to comment externally on the incident, and it is uncertain whether the club intends to take action against the players involved. 

This is not the first time a Real Madrid player has been involved in a similar situation after former Los Blancos captain Karim Benzema had his international career truncated by a sextape scandal involving teammate Franck Ribery, which caused him to miss the 2018 World Cup triumph. 

On that occasion, the charges against Benzema were levelled against him in France, but the now Al Ittihad forward was eventually declared innocent, although he was found guilty of other charges, including an attempt to blackmail Ribery with the video in question.
