Joao Havelange and Ricardo Teixeira were named as having received huge sums by Fifa’s former marketing partner ISL.
Blatter was aware senior officials were paid millions of pounds, according to a court investigation.
“On my request, ISL file will be given to the new ethics committee,” Blatter tweeted yesterday.
“ISL is settled legally – now it will be settled also morally.”
Last week Blatter stated on Fifa’s website that he knew about the payments but that they were legal at the time.
He said: “Back then, such payments could even be deducted from tax as a business expense. Today, that would be punishable under law.”
Havelange was Fifa president for 24 years before being succeeded by Blatter in 1998 while Teixeira, Havelange’s former son-in-law, this year resigned as head of Brazil’s football federation and the 2014 World Cup organising committee.
Former United States attorney Michael J Garcia has been appointed by football’s world governing body as head of the new ethics committee.
