Goal.com logo Goal.com 20-07-2017

Monaco have released a statement condemning a number of Europe's top football clubs for making unauthorised contact with Kylian Mbappe.

The 18-year-old is one of the most highly sought-after players in world football, with PSG, Arsenal and Real Madrid all linked with a transfer.

Monaco have not confirmed which clubs made illegal approaches for the France international forward, but are hoping that the French Football League and FIFA can prevent it from happening again.

The statement reads:

"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 offending clubs."
