Re: Trump, Bayrock, Doyen, soccer and the Kazakh gangster

In 2008, the hedge fund Doyen Group of the Arif family began “investing” in professional football. Doyen Sports Investments Limited, of the Doyen Group, is very active in financing Third-Party Ownership (TPO) of contracts for soccer players.
Nélio Freire Lucas founded Doyen Sports in 2011, and describes this process as "Third Party Investment". As opposed to TPO, which has recently been banned by the FIFA.
From 2011 to 2016, Doyen invested €170 million in association football.
Doyen Sports lends money to professional football clubs for transfers. The club has 3 years to repay its debt, if they can’t they are forced to resell the players. Doyen gets a percentage of the transfer. In this way Doyen (and affiliated funds and club owners) can keep on inflating the prices indefinitely (controlling both the selling and the buying club)…

Doyen Group's financial division, Doyen Capital LLP, is based in London. Doyen Capital has the same address as Doyen Group and is headed by Nélio Lucas, Simon Oliveira, and Matthew Kay.
Doyen Capital LLP is the origin of funding for Doyen Sports and Doyen Sports Investments Limited, which has 4 shareholders: Malik Ali; Claudio Tonolla (Swiss investor, residing in Malta); Nelio Lucas and Ali Lüftü Ethem Kadirgan.

Nélio Lucas owns 20% of the Doyen Group subsidiary Doyen Natural Resources through shell corporations in tax havens.
The nucleus of shareholders at Doyen Group are, Tevfik Arif and 3 of his sons: Refik (Doyen Capital LLP and Doyen Global Limited); Efendi (Doyen Capital Services Limited) and Kemal (Doyen Capital).
Benington Group Assets also holds 80% of the shares of Doyen Sports Investments Limited.

Doyen Sports reportedly paid €10.8 million in secret commissions for the transfer of various players (including the French Kondogbia and Mangala and the Colombian Radamel Falcao), using shell companies. According to Football Leaks, the companies Rixos, Denos and PMCI, are used.

For some reason the “independent” Wikipedia has deleted interesting information…
I think that this is the most interesting of the archived versions of this page, with quoted below the part that has been deleted
According to Bloomberg News as of 2015, the main investors of the Doyen Group remained anonymous, except for three people:
Fettah Tamince, a relative of Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan; runs and owns the Turkish hotel /Bchain Rixos and Star Media Group;
Tevfik Arif, Turkish Kazakh owner of the Bayrock Group,[15][16] a New York-based real estate developer and partner of Fettah Tamince and Donald Trump.[17]
Erick Thohir, an Indonesian billionaire who bought Inter Milan

Four members of the Arif family form the nucleus of shareholders at Doyen Group: Tevfik Arif and three of his sons: Refik (Doyen Capital LLP and Doyen Global Limited); Efendi (Doyen Capital Services Limited) and Kemal (Doyen Capital; 2011–2013);[1]

The Arif family made a fortune through the privatization of a chemical plant in Kazakhstan during the collapse of the USSR before financing the investment fund "Doyen Sports" to the tune of €75 million and hiding this money in dozens of offshore companies in "tax havens such as Panama, Isle of Man, the Netherlands, Malta or the British Virgin Islands".[6] The Doyen Group has always kept the source of its funds secret; According to the newspaper L'Équipe (based on information from the "Football Leaks"), this could be motivated by "fiscal reasons" but also by the origin of the family fortune of the "Arif clan" built from the ruins of the former USSR by "appropriating mines and factories at low prices, with the support of corrupt politicians and organized crime (...) protectors apparently so dangerous that they can ruin The Arif family with a finger snap."
It is this sulphurous silver (€300 million siphoned in a Kazakh chemical factory) that financed Doyen Sports. €75 million paid by Refik Arif, which affects interest but does not appear anywhere, hidden behind an offshore shell driven by a nominee, a nephew Arif"[6] who specifies that Bloomberg had identified in 2013 one of the shareholders of the Doyen group, Turkish naturalized Kazakh businessman Tevfik Arif.
Compare the previous version (including the last quote): https://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Doyen_Group&oldid=768855025
With the current version: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Doyen_Group
(Here an archived version of this Wikipedia page: http://archive.fo/LVvLV)

The Blacksea site (also) has an interesting story on the transfer of Kondogbia.
Sevilla only wished to sell the Frenchman for 20 million Euros, and Fifa rules prohibit investment funds from influencing transfers.
In August 2013, Nelio Lucas arranged a party in Miami, involving prostitutes, to convince Real Madrid president Florentino Perez, to buy Kondogbia for 20 million Euros. The location was the Arif residence on Fisher Island, a short distance from Miami Beach.
The transfer to Real didn’t work out, and it was Monaco that paid the 20 million for Kondogbia.
Lucas texted to Arif “Great deal for us”, Arif replied: “Congrats bro!!!!!!!”.

The transfer gave Doyen Sport a net profit of 7.8 million Euros, a return on its initial “investment” of 524% in only one year (that’s money laundering in a fast way…).
One year after the transfers, Lucas used the Denos limited shell company, registered in Ras al-Khaimah (part of the United Arab Emirates). On 17 July 2014, Doyen Sports paid 1.3 million Euro to Denos, 785,865 Euro for the transfer of Kondogbia and 533,190 Euro for Falcao. The Football Leaks documents don’t reveal to whom the money ultimately went.

In December 2014, Italian football agent Gianluca Fiorini filed a complaint, in which he accused Doyen Sports of committing “grave abuse” in Kondogbia’s transfer to Monaco because it controlled both the player’s agent and the agent for then Monaco manager Claudio Ranieri.
Fiorini said Spanish agent Juan Manuel Lopez (who was Kondogbia’s agent) had “invested” in Doyen Sports, just like his Italian colleague Giuseppe Bozzo, who was Ranieri’s agent. Lopez is one of Nelio Lucas’s professional collaborators, and Bozzo has been appointed by Nelio Lucas as the exclusive representative for Doyen Sports in Italy.
Fifa also suspected that a secret payment of 500,000 Euro was made during Kondogbia’s transfer from French club Lens to Sevilla in 2012.
At the beginning of 2016, the Fifa sentenced Sevilla to a formal warning and a fine of 55,000 Swiss francs. Sevilla appealed the sentence: https://theblacksea.eu/index.php?idT=88&idC=88&idRec=1276&recType=story

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-creatieve-transfers-van-munsterman~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-betaalde-doyen-bij-contracten-jeugdspelers.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/football/news-and-comment/doyen-sports-wins-legal-dispute-with-sporting-lisbon-over-compensation-claim-for-transfer-of-maros-a6787046.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&idC=88&idRec=1277&recType=story

See Donald Trump with Tevfik and Efendi Arif.

Hey firestarter... All of your post above is very informative but can you break it down in manageable pieces for us beginners. lol...  In the business world, one looks up the information  and uses it to create points of interest He or she want to convey to the higher ups.

While we or I are certainly not the higher ups, I ask that you break it down into points of interest along with your opinions to and fro so we/I might digest it a little better. Thank you!

1 Cor 15:3-4.."For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:"

Acts 17:11.."These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."
