Ligue 2 Club Monaco Will Pursue Legal Action Against French Football Federation

Ligue 2 club Monaco will "take the dispute over the side's proposed relocation to France to the Council of State," according to Livio Caferoglu of GOAL. The French Football Federation met Monaco with a view to settle its Professional Football League's ruling that the the club "must move its headquarters to the country's mainland" by June '14. However, an agreement "did not materialize following a round of talks," with the FFF suggesting that Monaco make a one-off payment of €200M ($257M) for the issue to be dropped, and "the Rouge-et-blanc have now warned that they will put forward their case to the French court" (GOAL, 5/17).
