Kylian Mbappé, a shining star at Paris Saint-Germain, a key player for the French national team, and the coveted target of Real Madrid, may need to sever ties with his mother, Fayza Lamari, should the Spanish club secure the French sensation.
This action arises from a recent FIFA regulation regarding player agents. Fayza serves as the agent for both Mbappé and his younger brother, 16-year-old midfielder Ethan Mbappé, who also plays for PSG.
However, she is not listed in FIFA’s agents’ platform and would be ineligible to participate in transfer negotiations with the Spanish club. Starting in early October, FIFA has mandated a specific license, obtainable after passing a qualifying examination. Fayza either did not pass the exam or did not take it, and she will have another opportunity to meet FIFA’s standards in May 2024.
Mbappé’s contract with PSG is set to expire the following month, in June. Real Madrid closely monitors the situation to negotiate directly with the 24-year-old player, although in recent transfer windows, they have faced strong resistance from the French club in their efforts to retain him.
