The future of Kylian Mbappé might be in the hands of a new agent. Until now, his mother, Fayza Lamari, had been acting as his agent over the years, known for her negotiating skills in various deals involving her famous son. However, due to recent FIFA regulations, the situation might take a significant turn.

As per the FIFA Agent Platform directory, Fayza Lamari is not listed as one of the thousands of registered agents. Therefore, without this license, Fayza cannot represent any football player, negotiate contracts, or even indirectly receive commissions, reports MARCA.

In terms of timing, Lamari has no option to obtain this license until at least the following month of May when the new examination is held.

Should she attempt to do so, any other agent could report her through a FIFA service that allows anonymous reporting of agents who are believed to be working without the necessary license. This situation could result in substantial fines for both the individual and the company they work for.

Rule exceptions

There are exceptions to the new regulations. In Germany, a Dortmund Court ruling states that any German team, agent, or German player does not have to adhere to certain articles of the new agent regulations that came into effect on October 1.

Additionally, in England, there is a ‘block’ in place until the ordinary courts provide a definitive ruling on this matter. A response that is not expected to arrive until at least November 1. Until then, no article from the new FIFA agent regulations can be considered valid.

Similar developments could unfold in Spain. A hearing on this issue took place on Tuesday, and a provisional order could be issued. A higher court is expected to make the final decision. FIFA, on the other hand, is determined to see this matter through to the end.

With the new regulations, the license is of global significance, not specific to each country. To obtain it, one must pass an exam or possess a valid license dating back to before 2015.

One of the significant changes is that being a parent (as with Mesut Özil and his father Mustafa) or a sibling or lawyer of the player is no longer sufficient to negotiate contracts. The new rule mandates having this license.

No commissions for Lamari

Regarding Lamari, there is no record of her having passed this exam, which means she cannot receive a commission for any potential transfer involving her son. Mbappé, for negotiations involving a potential move to another club, such as Real Madrid or a contract renewal with PSG, will have to seek a different agent, according to experts in the field.
