- Reports in Spain are claiming that three Real Madrid players have been arrested
Three Real Madrid players have been arrested, respected Spanish news website El Confidencial is reporting.
The media outlet says they were held after the mother of an underage teenage girl went to police to claim one of the trio filmed a sex video of the youngster and sent it to others.
They were arrested this morning, El Confidencial said.
The ongoing investigation is reportedly being led by Civil Guard officers in Gran Canaria because the complaint is said to have been lodged in Mogan in the south of the island on September 6.
The players, who have not been named, have been described as a youth player, a reserve team player and a “third team” player.

The men said to have been arrested are understood to be under police investigation on suspicion of a crime of ‘disclosure of confidential information.’
