Manchester City and Paris St Germain have been reported by Monaco after they contacted Kylian Mbappé and his representatives without prior authorisation from the club.
Just over a week ago, French publication L’Equiple reported that Pep Guardiola had dinner with Monaco boy wonder Kylian Mbappé and his family to discuss the potential of a move to the Etihad.
Monaco released a statement on their website that they are considering action against clubs that have approached Mbappé without permission. The statement read:
“AS MONACO regretfully notice that « important » European football clubs made contacts with Kylian Mbappé (and his entourage) without its authorization.
AS MONACO want to remind to these clubs that such actions are contrary to the article 211 of the Administrative regulation of the French Football League (Ligue de Football Professionnel) and to the article 18.3 of the Regulation of the Status and the Transfer of the Players of FIFA.
To put an end to this unacceptable situation, AS Monaco consider asking the French Football League (Ligue de Football Professionnel) and the FIFA to commit disciplinary procedures against clubs offenders.”
Although no teams are mentioned in the statement, Sky Sports report that the clubs in question are Manchester City and PSG.
Understand Monaco's complaint to FIFA over Mbappe relates to alleged conduct of Manchester City and PSG, not Arsenal. #SSN
