In 2013, media tycoon Erick Thohir, Handy Soetedjo and Rosan Roeslani bought 70% of Inter Milan for a reported $400 million.Firestarter wrote: ↑Fri Oct 20, 2017 4:58 pmThe main investors of the Doyen Group remain anonymous, except for three people:
- Fettah Tamince, a relative of Turkish President Erdogan, who owns Star Media Group and the hotel chain Rixos (together with Tevfik Arif);
- Erick Thohir, an Indonesian billionaire who bought Inter Milan;
- Tevfik Arif.
Until December 2012, Rosan Roeslani had been a Director of Indonesian mining group Bumi plc (he also managed its subsidiary Berau Coal). Bumi is listed on the London Stock Exchange.
Roeslani took $173 million out of Berau, before buying the stake in Inter Milan, and then promised to put it back “by the end of the year”.
In 2013, none other than Nathaniel “Nat” Rothschild owned about 15% of Bumi plc.
Rothschild effectively put Bumi together, in partnership with the Indonesian Bakrie family.
Rothschild claimed to be unhappy with the deal and said:
http://jewishbusinessnews.com/2013/10/2 ... ball-club/Roeslani only has the funds and freedom to do this because Bumi’s board have failed to take any legal action whatsoever to date against him.

Over here in the Netherlands, the money laundering Doyen Group has gotten negative publicity for manipulating transfers of Ajax Amsterdam and FC Twente.
Twente even got threatened to be degraded (which didn’t go through) and was banned from European competitions for 3 years by the KNVB.
In the Dutch press the affair surrounding Twente has gotten publicity, but nothing has been revealed about the money laundering Doyen Group of the Arif family and its affiliation to Donald Trump.
In 2012, FC Twente bought the Serbian Dusan Tadic from FC Groningen (also from the Netherlands). In 2014, FC Twente made a deal with Doyen Sports Investments. In return for a 5 million Euro “loan”, Doyen obtained part of the transfer rights for 7 Twente-players, including Tadic.
In 2014, Tadic was sold to the English club Southampton for some 13 million Euros - Doyen received 10% of that sum. FC Twente had to pay Tadic’s agent Zoran Pavlovic an additional 3.6 million Euro.
In 2013, FC Twente, made another deal with Represetanciones Internacionales Vijai to buy the Mexican Jesús Corona for 3.5 million Euro from Monterrey. In 2015, Corona was sold for some 12 million Euros to FC Porto, of which Vijai got 60%.
I don’t know which money launderers control Vijai.
In March 2015, FC Twente had to retract its annual financial statement (for 2014-2015) because of irregularities surrounding the transfer of Dusan Tadic to Southampton (in Dutch): https://www.volkskrant.nl/sport/de-crea ... ~a4273514/
Ajax Amsterdam made deals with the British agent Matthew Kay of Doyen to get high transfer sums for 4 youth players by selling them before the end of their contracts (in Dutch): https://nos.nl/artikel/2091602-ajax-bet ... elers.html
In our Brave New World, the Legal system protects the big crooks…
In December 2015, the CAS ordered Sporting Lisbon to pay £12.5 million of the transfer of Marcos Rojo to Manchester United. Plus 75% of any transfer fee over £17 million if Rojo is sold by Manchester United.
Doyen Sports was also behind Manchester City’s £42 million transfer of Eliaquim Mangala: http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/foot ... 87046.html
On 20 January 20 2014, Doyen’s Nelio Lucas celebrated his 35th birthday in the presence of Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, CEO of Atlético de Madrid Miguel Angel Gil, AC Milan vice-president Adriano Galliani and his daughter (that was hired by Doyen), Inter Milan’s sporting director, the directors of English club Fulham, Portuguese side Sporting and Spanish club Sevilla, and the son of the president of Portuguese club Porto as well.
Lucas also had excellent relations with Vincent Labrune, who from 2011 to 2016 was president of the French club Marseille.
On 14 occasions in 2014, 2015, Lucas brought pretty young women to “help with business deals”, the plane tickets paid by his offshore company Vela.
In 2014, Efendi Arif wrote to Lucas about “his” players in that year’s World Cup in Brazil: Mangala, Promes, Defour, Januzaj, Xavi, Falcao, Rojo, Negredo, de Gea, and Neymar.
Doyen Sports owned 60% of the transfer rights in the Moroccan Abdel Barrada. In 2013, Barrada left the Spanish Getafe, for United Arab Emirates side Al-Jazira. The mere 3.35 million Euro Doyen – twice what it paid only 2 years earlier – was considered a disappointment.
The move of the Colombian Radamel Falcao from Atlético Madrid to Monaco in 2013, in which Doyen owned a 33% stake, made a profit of 5.3 million Euro, which was again disappointing.
In 2014, English club Manchester City bought the French Eliaquim Mangala from FC Porto for 45 million Euros, Doyen Sports earned 10 million Euro in the deal, which was 4 times the price they had paid.
Just 5 days later, Lucas arranged for 2 million Euros be transferred to shell company PMCI in Abu Dhabi, labelled as “consultancy”.
Porto defender Sergio de Oliveira got a free transfer by his club Porto. In January 2015, shortly after Doyen Sports had begun representing the player, Porto decided to buy him back with Doyen Sport’s “help”.
Doyen Sports was De Oliveira’s agent, with a 25% stake in the player, bought for 500,000 Euro from Porto with a 300,000 Euro commission.
Because Portuguese law prohibits a person or company to represent more than 1 party, Lucas turned to Fifa-licensed agent Kevin Caruana who signed for the 300,000 Euro-commission (to be paid via Vela). Caruana was paid 2,000 Euro for his services.
In 2014, Porto announced that it had bought Yacine Brahimi for 6.5 million Euro. In reality, Brahimi had cost 9.5 million Euro, of which 8 million Euro was paid by Doyen Sports for 80% in the transfer rights.
Porto paid a commission of 500,000 Euro into the account of Doyen Sports shell company Denos, in Dubai. Because Lucas did not have an agent’s licence, his colleague Juan Manuel Lopez signed the contract.
A year later, on 29 July 2015, Lucas secretly paid 1.5 million Euro for Brahimi, through Denos.
A little more than a month later, Brahimi renegotiated his contract with Porto including the club buying his image rights for 4 million Euros. Lucas received 500,000 Euro in a commission payment from Porto, which was sent into Lucas’s Maltese-registered company Vela via its Liechtenstein bank account.
Vela was also given a mandate for the future sale of Brahimi, with 10% of the transfer rights.
In February 2014, Doyen Sports bought a stake in Adnan Januzaj’s image rights, for 1.5 million Euros.
Januzaj was paid another 500,000 Euro bonus through offshore structures.
Doyen Sports has transferred 10.8 million Euros in secret commissions into the companies Denos, Rixos and PMCI.
When Nelio Lucas was negotiating mining deals in Brazil, Sierra Leone and Angola; he asked Efendi Arif “Do you thing I should bribe them???” to which Efendi answered “Yes bro”: https://theblacksea.eu/index.php?idT=88 ... Type=story
