Le Havre contact Fifa over Progba case

Chelsea were hit with an 18-month transfer ban earlier this week following their illegal signing of youngster Gael Kakuka from French side Lens back in 2007.

“The player had a no-hire agreement, and so had to sign his first contract in France,” Louvel told radio station France Info.

“But he didn’t sign it because Manchester United contacted the parents and made astronomical and excessive financial propositions for a 15-year-old boy.

“We have submitted the case to Fifa. The letter to leave has not been agreed by the French Federation, so today Fifa has been referred.

“I hope we will get the same result (as the Gaël Kakuta case), which could justify to those clubs they can’t do anything and they have rules to respect.”
